Government portals are not up-to-date
VIJAYAWADA: Even as chief minister Chandrababu hard selling internet of things (IoT) and real-time governance at
every official review meeting here.
Experts say an absence of updated information on the websites not only contradicts the CM’s claims that he is using the internet for smart governance but also defeats the whole purpose of an online portal. “The purpose of a website is to keep people updated with the changes in the government. If it doles out old information, what is the point of having it? Except for promoting that the government is using the internet for real-time governance, it doesn’t serve any objective,” pointed out K Srikanth, a data analyst at a private ITES firm.
