J&K has become champion in digital transactions in country: LG Manoj Sinha
NEW DELHI: Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha on Tuesday asserted that the Union Territory has become a champion in terms of digital transactions in the country in the last two-and-a-half years. “In the last 2.5 years, J&K has become the champion of the country as far as digital transactions are concerned. We have built a digital society, offering 446 services online, and our entire administration is paperless. J-K is witnessing a digital revolution,” L-G Manoj Sinha said at the G20 meeting International Education Fair 2023 in the national capital. He said that the Union Territory is a crown jewel of the country that embodies India’s values. Further lauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “people-centric efforts”, L-G Sinha said that the stone pelting has become “a thing of the past” for the UT. “For more than three decades, the land suffered terrorism from the neighbouring countries. Stone pelting has now become a thing of the past. Under the leadership of the Prime Minister, Jammu and Kashmir is on the path of the move,” he said further. Later in the address, Sinha said, “The Prime Minister ended decades of discrimination. We have made efforts to maintain people-centric efforts. Human development projects have been taken up. The growth of Jammu and Kashmir has not only accelerated but also became regionally more balanced and inclusive,” he added.
