Arunachal Pradesh government seems to have woken up to the need for upgrading its IT set-up in the state. Chief minister Dorjee Khandu directed parliamentary secretary of IT Jomde Kena, commissioner of IT Hage Khoda, director Kemo Lollen and director of state remote sensing application centre (SRSAC) G.C. Chennaiah to modernise the set-up by making functional non-operational community information centres (CICs) and procure updated equipment. Kena urged the chief minister to pursue the NEC to sanction adequate aid for maintenance of these CICs. Khandu agreed to write to the NEC for early allocation of the required funds. The chief minister also asked the department to conduct a review meeting involving representatives of all the companies engaged under the programme in January. Khandu also asked the officials to ensure early completion of a permanent directorate building of IT department. The chief minister said: “Our state is still in an infant stage and we must come up with suitable and viable schemes to upgrade it and make Arunachal on a par with other advanced states like Karnataka.” Kena said the basic motive behind establishing CICs in block levels have helped the rural mass to a great extent, as they were able to connect to the world through Internet. Commissioner of IT Hage Khoda appraised the chief minister about the project on computerisation of Inner Line Permit project for which the Centre had sanctioned Rs 79 lakhs. Out of the estimated project cost of Rs. 2.5 Crores and requested him to take up the matter with the Centre.
