Lot more on Digital Bangladesh coming: Joy

DHAKA: Prime Minister’s ICT Advisor Sajeeb Wazed Joy yesterday said a tremendous achievement has been made about Digital Bangladesh over the last seven years and a lot more is coming.

“It has been a while since I have written about Digital Bangladesh … a tremendous amount has been achieved in the past 7 years. A lot more is coming,” Joy wrote in his Facebook post.

The PM’s ICT adviser said: “We have already introduced e-tendering and e-filing for the government and they are slowly being adopted by various ministries.”

He wrote e-tendering will reduce corruption as there will be no need to go to an office to submit tenders. “The tenders will also be processed electronically so no one can manipulate them,” Joy wrote.

The PM’s ICT adviser said e-filing will be used by the government agencies to speed up file processing. There will be automatic monitoring of time taken to process files.

Joy wrote: “Government officers will be awarded points based on the time taken and these points will be used to calculate bonuses and promotions … so, they will have an incentive not to delay.”

He said various citizen registries such as birth registrations, drivers licenses, etc. are all being connected to the National ID system to eliminate fraud.

Joy wrote security is being designed into these systems from the beginning. They have segmentation as well as advanced access control systems.

“We have also undertaken projects to get fiber optic cable to each and every union in the country by 2018 … the goal is to have 5 mbps connections available anywhere in the country by then,” he said.

The PM’s ICT adviser said: “If you are not aware, our central government web portal already has a section with all Government forms available in one place for download.”

“Most of them can even be filled out and submitted online. You don’t have to come to a government office unless you need to make payment or submit other documents.”

“All of this has been achieved only because of our Awami League government … without the Awami League, there would be no Digital Bangladesh,” Joy wrote.

ভেঙে পড়ছে গ্রিসের অর্থনীতি। দুই মেয়াদে ক্ষমতায় এসেও সিপ্রাস সরকার চিত্রটা পাল্টাতে পারেনি। দিন দিন বাড়ছে বেকারত্ব। গোটা দেশটার আর্থ-সামাজিক…
