Kapil Sibal's Dream: A Google For Government
New Delhi: Telecom and IT Minister Kapil Sibal asked his ministry officials to lay a road map by 2014 for creation of a "Google" type of comprehensive website that will enable citizens to access service of all government departments with a click of a mouse.
"My dream will only come true when we will provide people of India with that (Google) kind of platform and I hope before 2014 a blueprint of that kind of platform is laid on the table for me to sign on so that future is cast in stone. This is my dream and vision," Sibal said while inaugurating National Data Centre (NDC) spread over 60,000 square feet area here.
He said he always has a question in his mind that why is India not having a Google-like platform instead of the existing system where people have to access the website of each ministry for information.
The Minister said there should be one common platform for providing all kind of services that can be provided through internet.
Meanwhile, officials from Department of Electronics and Information Technology said they are working on another project to create a new data centre spread over 2 lakh square feet to address future requirement after space in the NDC, launched today, is exhausted.
