J&K Lt Governor Manoj Sinha on Sunday said under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi the UT was emerging as a model of digital governance with focus on transparency and citizen-friendly approach to deliver public services.

In his address at the valedictory session of 25th National Conference on e-Governance at Katra, he said that technology has changed the lives of the people.

“In 2013, the total number of e-transaction was merely 20 lakh. This year, till 25 November, the number of e-transaction is 38.50 crore. On an average, J&K is recording 550 e-transactions every minute,” he said.

According to him, delivering efficient, effective, and accountable governance is the top priority. Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar also attended the valedictory session.

An IT MoU was signed between J&K and Haryana wherein the latter would invest in Jammu and Kashmir. Khattar said that a lot of money was given to J&K earlier as well but no audits were conducted then. He added that after the abrogation of Article 370, development has begun in J&K.

The Haryana CM also visited the Vaishno Devi temple where he prayed for peace and prosperity in the country.
