Armed Forces to accelerate Network Centric Systems

18:48 IST
The Minister of State for Defence Dr. MM Pallam Raju has called upon the armed forces to take advantage of the economic downturn and utilize the idle capacity in the IT industry to expedite their computerization and network centric systems. Presiding over the 4th meeting of the Defence IT Consultative Committee (DITCC) here today he exhorted the industry and academia to come up with fresh ideas and proposals to bring the defence services at the forefront of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

Expressing satisfaction over the progress in the ICT roadmap of the three Services for the last fiscal, Dr Pallam Raju hoped that the forces will sustain the endeavour started by the DITCC in the coming years.

National e-governance status
Critics argue that crores of rupees have already been spent on e-governance projects and the citizen has not gained any major benefit. There is still no consensus about the deployment of open source and proprietary software. Complaints regarding IT implementation are surfacing one by one.
We are over two decades behind most of the Asian Nations (except for nations like Bangladesh, Pakistan, Burma and Thailand) and are likely to slide further because of spokes generated by corrupt bureaucrats in the implementation of e-governance at National Level.
