A Test for the Modi Government

Followers of this site are aware of the mission like pursuance of the undersigned regarding the activation of Cyber Judiciary system in the country which was paralyzed during the previous regime of Mr Kapil Sibal.

During the last three years of deliberate in-action by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) many cyber crime victims have lost faith in the system. Even I have been unable to enthuse them despite several attempts with the Human Rights Commission and High Court.

Now Mr Modi has indicated his preference of E Governance as well as better Governance and hence we expect things to turn around for the Cyber Crime victims of India.

After posting an open letter through this site earlier, I have today sent an email to the Minister in charge of the MCIT. Whether this mail will be responded by the Minister (at the e-mail pace) or not will be a test of E Governance to the new administration.

The officials of the department remain the same as were under the administration of the previous regime and hence we need to keep our fingers crossed if there would be any positive change in the administration even after Mr Modi is the Prime Minister and the Ministers have been given freedom to operate. However, unless Ministers are able to exercise their individual acumen and control, changes will not be effective.

Let’s wait and watch if there is any change in the MCIT.

In the past, MCIT officials were deployed more to watch critical comments made by Netizens on Twitter, Facebook and Blogs and I suspect that this site was also under  watch.  We understand that the new dispensation may not be  “Fascist” as the previous regime and hence may fail to watch this site for criticism. But I hope they do watch for constructive suggestions. The request for quick attention on CAT is one such suggestion and I am watching the speed of response if any.
