Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Thursday said the IT policy approved by his government would play a crucial role in making the state digitally-empowered.
“In continuation with our Prime Minister’s call for digital India, Goa is very proud that we are going into a new era of information technology by unveiling the IT policy and ensuring that Goa enters the digital world,” Parrikar, a former IITian, said in a video message.
The Goa Cabinet under Parrikar yesterday approved Information Technology policy 2018 which focuses on reverse migration and creation of around 10,000 jobs in the next five years.
“As far as e-governance is concerned, the policy will generate a lot of employment potential for the youth and ensure that the coastal state becomes the first digitally empowered state in the country,”Parrikar added.
The IT policy would be formally unveiled by Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad here July 15.
