Many email IDs on various government websites are non-functional. So how can the public contact these entities via the Internet, when this is the age of ‘e-governance’?
We are proud to call ourselves a software giant. There is no need to write in length on the IT giants making 'waves' across the world. But why has the government not put its own e-house in order?
A Moneylife reader, KG Gupta, has written in to us on a number of non-functional e-mail IDs sported by various government and quasi-government websites.
Here's what Mr Gupta has to say: "Many email IDs displayed on various websites are non-functional and the general public cannot contact the relevant offices and/or hope to be heard by making the use of technology.
"The general public is forced to visit (the) respective offices along with all original (documents) and photocopies and have to waste a lot of valuable time in pleading before bureaucrats. Is the use of technology only one-sided? Or is it just a fad?"
Mr Gupta had written several emails to various senior officials of MAHADISCOM (the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co Ltd), on various issues, but all those messages have bounced back. Moneylife has in its possession the emails that Mr Gupta had sent out.
He has also written mails to The New India Assurance Co Ltd on the e-mail IDs indicated on its website. Mr Gupta says, these messages "are bouncing back with the remarks (indicating) invalid IDs." The rot is deep.
Mr Gupta has tried to send mail to the Thane Collector and the Kalyan Dombivali Municipal Corporation (http://www.kdmc.gov.in/kdmc/). He says that all these websites are just "showpieces." He rightfully asks, "Isn't this wastage of public money?"
The issues he has raised range from bills not being received, disconnection of electricity connections—the whole gamut of issues that our 'common' man faces. The messages have been forwarded to Moneylife, and they contain every possible detail that these hallowed entities need. If a net-savvy urban resident cannot get through via the Web to these places, just imagine the plight that every citizen of this country has to go through when they have to face our omnipresent—and somnolent—bureaucracy.
MAHADISCOM even has a section on the Right to Information (RTI) Act.
Need we add anything more?
In fact, in a response to Moneylife's article on transparency in public organisations, (CIC says pulling out CBI from scope of RTI Act is a violation of the law itself ), reader Kris Dev had to say this: "All actions of all individuals and organisations including government organisations must be transparent to (the) public. This can be ensured only if all information is made electronic. Information storage must be controlled by the individual similar to a bank locker. But if any citizen or organisation(s) has doubt(s) on the genuineness of any action, the same can be challenged and the concerned must hold themselves accountable to make transparent the details."
Can we expect an email from any of the government entities to this article? Perish the thought.
