eGovApp Store Workshop conducted on 13 October 2015 in Goa

A one day workshop on eTaal and eGovApp Store was conducted on 13 October 2015 in Goa at the Seminar Hall, Secretariat Porvorim. The workshop was meant to sensitize various department heads of the state government on giving visibility to their e-governance projects though eTaal and eGovApp Store portals at the national level. There was a brief inaugural function before the technical sessions. Shri JJR Anand, SIO NIC Goa welcomed the participants and briefed the gathering about the need for having this workshop. Dr. Shefali Dash, Deputy Director General, NIC addressed the gathering and threw light on the genesis of these two projects. Dr. Dash informed how some states which were lower in rating on the eTaal portal as far as e-Governance projects were concerned, have picked up and gone higher in rating because of the monitoring mechanism that eTaal provides. Dr. Dash urged the Govt. of Goa departments to also improve their rating by putting up more and more e-governance services on eTaal.
