Manual – 17:- Such Other Information as may be Prescribed; and there after update these Publications every year:

 

 

(1) How to get our Computer Hardware and Networking product registered with GIL/GOG ?

 

At present computer hardware and networking components are procured through open tenders for which advertisements are published in various Newspapers and uploaded on websites (www.gil.gujarat.gov.in)

There is no system of product registration with GIL.

 

(2) I need information about the tenders released by the Gujarat Informatics Ltd. Where can I find them?

 

Please visit our website www.gil.gujarat.gov.in for the latest tender releases of GIL.

 

(3) What is eGovernance?

 

e-Governance is to enhance the access & delivery of Government information and services to citizens, business partners, employees, other agencies, and Government entities by using Information & Communication Technology.

 

(4) What is the scope of e-Governance?

 

Accountability - To make Government move open and transparent.

Example: publishing council debates and minutes on the web for easy access by public and press;

Transparent and Fair Services Delivery - Automating for efficient interactions with the public and business, and increasing access points. There are powerful anti-corruption opportunities through liberalizing access points.

Example: Electronic exchange of land registry information with land agents and lawyers; making forms and licensing available electronically to avoid trips to government offices with the risk of wasted time and bribes;

 

Governance - An emerging area where some jurisdictions are experimenting with alternate polling and electoral processes.

Example: some political parties are using telephone automated response systems to vote for leadership candidates;

 

(5) What is the reach/impact of eGovernance?

 

The internet is the most powerful and popular means of delivering eGovernance. However, services may also be delivered through: Conventional Telephone - Call centers, automated voice responses, automated notification of events, easily combined with FAX for FAX-on-demand of forms and information; Wireless Digital Telephone and Messaging Technology - Wireless technology offers a cost-effective telecommunication and Internet services to rural areas. FAX - Diversifying delivery channels extends the services to as many citizens as possible. Access can also be expanded creatively; for example, where individual personal computer ownership is low, access to computers may be made available through a coop, community police station, or other group. Use of existing telephone and FAX technology is often a quick solution. Radio - Radio is the most cost-effective communication method in rural community. UNICEF experimented in rural Sri Lanka a Community Radio/Internet Project, where local resource persons translate Internet content to radio program so that local people can have an access to information on the Internet.

 

(6) How does e-Governance benefit citizens/govt?

 

The Indian Ministry of IT will soon set the pace for hi-tech governance by developing software to process a wide variety of proposals. Officials at various levels will have to make online decisions on these proposals. Such software will not only get rid of red tape, but will also increase transparency. Files and dossiers will no longer have to move from table to table. No longer will Indian people need to pay endless visits to government offices to get their proposals cleared.

 

(7) What needs to be done to speed up the pace of e-Governance activities (by Govt/Citizens)?

 

e-Governance initiatives can be implemented at the central or local government level. In general, coordination will be required to help in the identification of crosscutting issues and the creation of appropriate strategies to address them such strategies should include details of departmental and sector programs to transform their businesses in accordance with an overall eGovernance strategy.
