Lahore—The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) played a key role for improving the governance in Punjab that scored top position in Pakistan along with KP during the year 2014-2015.
Commenting on the recent scorecard analysis released by the Pakistan Institute of Legislative Development and Transparency (PILDAT), Dr. Saif said “smart technology is becoming an effective tool for e-governance that enhances efficiency, transparency and quality of public service delivery. We are not competing but actually helping all other provinces.
For example the survey observes about 89% decline in Polio cases that equally owes to Punjab’s e-Vaccs program also being replicated by the KP now. The 92 % computerization of land record in Punjab indicates a visible move towards end of Patwari culture.
Punjab has launched its e-Procurement program and its score for clean, efficient and economic public procurement becomes 84.8% as compared to the second one Baluchistan with 60.4% score. The PILDAT survey declares 73% increase in technology use for governance that stands 72.8% for Sindh, 63.8% for KP and 58.4% for Baluchistan.”
