Industrial Visit to Ministry Of Electronics & IT

The main aim of the industrial visit was to make students aware about the various practices of the Technology (DeitY), Government of India. Considering the significant potential of e-Governance to bring in socio-economic transformation, especially in the fields of education, health, skill-building, entrepreneurship and in creating employment opportunities, it is felt prudent that, demystifying the concept of e-Governance and disseminating information on various e-Governance initiatives taken up by various Central and State Governments, to the common people, especially to the student community, is an important step towards building a knowledge-base on this important aspect of the citizen-government interactions. This visit help students to understand the significant moves of government to make all Government Services easily accessible to the common man across the country through implementation of `Electronic Governance’, commonly known as `e-Governance’
