Karnataka State Government Goes Online With Circulars & Announcements

Karnataka as a state houses Bangalore, the Silicon Valley of India, so this had to happen sooner than later. In an attempt to help the general public, the government of Karnataka is planning to upload documents like government orders, circulars and announcements on the internet. This will enable people to easily gain access to government orders, circulars and announcements.

"As per the proposal, all the departments would have to upload all of their following documents on internet: orders, circulars, announcements, land records, survey records, land conversion records and other records related to land," said higher education minister VS Acharya.

The department of e-governance will handle the implementation of the project and will make sure all the documents related to land are scanned, indexed and catalogued.

Acharya added that the project will begin in Bangalore and all the district headquarters and the cabinet has already approved a grant of Rs 32 crore for the same.

The process of uploading the documents will start at the state and the district level and will be eventually extended to the taluks.

Just a few days back the Andhra Pradesh government launched the State Data Centre (SDC). The SDC will enable the automation of government and citizen services and hence it will host applications and data of the various state departments.
