North-East Region Ministry gets award for best web content


NEW DELHI: The Development of North East Region (DoNER) Ministry has  received the Union Information Technology Ministry Award for outstanding website content on its site http://doner.gov.in. 

The award titled “Web Ratna Award 2014” under the category of outstanding content was conferred here to Minister Jitendra Singh in recognition of the exemplary efforts made by the DoNER Ministry for promoting e-governance initiatives.

The website http://doner.gov.in is meant to serve as a portal on Northeast, providing information about every sector pertaining to the region as well as the current status of various projects related to tourism, flora fauna, educational institutions, universities, media and communications. In addition, it also provides information regarding demographic profile of the various States of Northeast, the socio-economic parameters and the projects undertaken directly by the DoNER Ministry or through North East Council (NEC).

Complimenting the DoNER Ministry’s project team headed by Joint Secretary A.M. Singh and comprising among others Ashim Kumar Jha and P.K. Pankaj, Dr Jitendra Singh said their efforts for the last few months have not only made the DoNER Ministry more visible but also succeeded in bringing to the centre-stage, the various activities and initiatives undertaken in the Northeast. Being a far flung region with several areas remaining inaccessible or incommunicable, he said, an effective website portal will help in connecting to the people, particularly the youth, living in the remotest of the remotest areas.

Singh disclosed that soon the DoNER Ministry will also have its own toll-free telephone number to make it possible for anybody interested in the Northeast to call up and obtain the desired information without having to pay for the phone call. Meanwhile, he added, a nodal officer has been earmarked to exclusively receive the phone calls from citizens and members of the civil society at telephone number 011-23022304.

He added that the DoNER Ministry has started its activities on fast track both within Northeast as well as outside Northeast with the objective of showcasing Northeast to the outside world and called upon his colleagues in the Ministry to carry forward this mission with a renewed vigour and encouragement that has come in the form of the award received today.
