Prasad said the Indian government has launched a massive programme to digitalise administrative functioning with the sole objective of improving efficiency and delivery of services.


India and Japan can leverage each others' prowess in technology to jointly work in areas like green technologies, cyber security and ICT development, communications and IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said on Wednesday.

Speaking at the second meeting of the India-Japan joint working group on ICT, Prasad said the Indian government has launched a massive programme to digitalise administrative functioning with the sole objective of improving efficiency and delivery of services.

"India has taken a big leap forward in letting technology play a pivotal role in bringing about the much needed change in governance in India. With friends like Japan, there is a natural scope to help us in achieving this objective," he added. This is the second meeting of the group, which was formed in October 2013 to boost bilateral trade in the field of information and communication technology (ICT).

Prasad is leading the Indian delegation, while Yasuo Sakamoto, Vice Minister for Policy Coordination (International Affairs), is heading the Japan team.
