Public services should be provided online by March 2021: Ashok Gehlot

Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday directed officials to provide 221 public services by various government departments online by March 2021. He asked that the chief secretary of the state coordinate with the respective departments and ensure good governance.

Gehlot Wednesday addressed a meeting with the IT and communications department through video conferencing. He said that nodal officers should be appointed in all departments and ensure online availability of all important services.

“We will have to increase the use of information technology in making the benefits of all government services and public welfare schemes accessible to villages and hamlets at a rapid pace,” he said.

Gehlot said that there is a large network of 80,000 e-Mitra centres and Rajiv Gandhi service centres available in the state to provide services to common people.
