Mr. Vivek Kumar Porwal
District : Jabalpur
The explosive potential of digital world lies in the fact that any form of information-be it data, voice or video-can be converted into series of 0’s and1’s which can be processed to a variety of applications for business and government.
1. ICT has to be used in socially sustainable manner as to maximize its impact
2. ICT process should not be just digital replication of existing paper processes
3. Unreformed Process + ICT = Expensive Process
4. ICT process should replace a paper process. The ICT process should replace manual otherwise it becomes duplicity of work.
