Vijayawada: Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said use of technology will help bring down expenditure. The Chief Minister inaugurated ISB’s e-Pragati training programme for officials at Tummalapalli Kalakshetram here on Tuesday. He said that employment opportunities can be generated by taking Information Technology to the homes of common people.

Naidu said the year 2017-18 will be considered as e-Pragati year and four top officials from all the 33 departments would be given training on e-Pragati certificate course for a period of six months.
He said e-Pragati would enable the State government to provide digital governance to the people. Naidu recalled the efforts he made 20 years ago to bring the Indian School of Business, IIIT and Nalsar University to Gachibowli in Hyderabad.

He said with the 4th generation industrial revolution, Internet of Things (IoT) was introduced.
“With the new technology we could warn the people about thunderstorms and cyclone. After Hudhud cyclone all the power lines were disrupted. Utilising the technology all the power lines were restored in a record time and installation of LED street lights helped in 40 per cent less power usage,” Naidu pointed out.

The Chief Minister said that the administration should keep pace with the changing technology to ensure people do not lose faith on the government. Information pertaining to various certificates would be provided online, he said. IT Minister Nara Lokesh said that development activities would be monitored through drones. Government schemes would be extended to people through e-governance and digital technology.

IT secretary Dayanand said e-Pragati is a brain child of the Chief Minister and it would connect all the officers in the State. It would facilitate paperless governance.

ISB dean Rajendra Srivastava had said that the organisation started with 400 students and now had 20,000 students.

Ministers Devineni Uma Maheswara Rao, Kamineni Srinivas, DGP N Sambasiva Rao, Mayor K Sridhar, e-Pragati CEO Balasubramanyam, industrialist Srini Raju, Neil Hacubson (South Africa), Krishna District Collector B Lakshmikantham, ISB Professor Deepa Mani and others were present.
