Sources say that AAP-led Delhi Government feels that this will not only increase efficiency, but also make Delhi corruption free.
The government is going to integrate health, power and transport sector services through technology and internet. Currently, people have to take out time and stand in long queues to get their work done. In the process, there are chances of bribes being demanded for getting the work done.
The government will ensure that people can get printouts of forms etc. sitting at home or in the office. This will save their time. Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of IT, Adarsh Shastri, said, “We are in the process of identifying various services where proper authentication and digital signature can help get their work done online.” This will also put a check on the culture of bribery.
Not only this, in its effort to make Delhi a smart city, the government is also planning to give people just one smart card, which will work not only for metro, bus etc., but parking facility can also be availed by using the card.
Shastri added, “In the same way, health cards will be given to each citizen which will be carrying the full data along with his medical history. The entire bed availability system will be made online by integrating all the hospitals and medical institutions. The doctors, in this way, will be able to check availability of beds and medicines on real time basis.”
The power sector will witness smart street lights. This type of lighting works on the basis of surrounding light. It works according to requirement and thus good per cent of light can be saved.
