Offices across Nagaland should go online, says CS

State chief secretary, J Alam, has suggested that offices across Nagaland should go online, be citizen-friendly, facilitate the cashless transaction, reduce the waiting period and create a robust system to deliver better and efficient governance without compromising on any regulatory requirements.
Speaking at the departmental review meeting of the transport department in the conference hall of chief secretary, Kohima on Saturday, 16 July 2022, Alam stated that adopting such positive changes would also ease the process of office functioning and bring transparency.
“There is a need to cut down on human interface and create an environment which will improve the citizen’s ease of doing business with the Government,” a DIPR report quoted Alam as saying.
The chief secretary instructed the transport department to coordinate with the information technology & communication (IT&C) department and work towards achieving those goals.
On the issue of vehicles plying without registration number plates, the department was asked to strictly enforce the legal provisions. The chief secretary also said that proper signage, which is easily visible to the drivers, should be put on all the roads across the State to improve road safety.
Appreciating the revenue generated by the department, the chief secretary impressed upon the need to put in place the online payment gateway at the earliest for ease of transactions and to avoid inconvenience to the service users.
In its presentation, the motor vehicles department gave a brief overview of the department’s administrative setup, activities, visions, and ongoing projects. The review meeting was also attended by additional chief secretary & finance commissioner, principal secretary IT&C, and other senior officers of the transport department.
