Chhattisgarh Infotech Promotion Society (CHiPS) is the nodal agency and prime mover for propelling IT growth & implementation of the IT & e-Governance projects in the State of Chhattisgarh. CHiPS is involved in the end-to-end implementation of some mega IT Projects like, SDC, SSDG, SWAN, GIS, CHOiCE, e-Procurement etc. A professional approach is being adopted for the implementation of IT Projects using the services of e-governance experts and consultants from corporate and academia.
Chhattisgarh State with wide-ranging socio-economic disparities is now witnessing the ongoing Information Technology (IT) revolution. The Government of Chhattisgarh visions ‘Vikas mool mantra, Aadhar loktantra’ (‘Driving Development through Democratic Governance’) and believes Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a particularly important medium for the state in reaching out and improving livelihoods specially for its overwhelming SC / ST population across 44% forest area, which had largely remained untouched by modern development.
An overwhelming proportion of this population is dependent upon agriculture and forest for their basic livelihood. Despite significant bottlenecks of limited access to market related information, monsoon forecasts, government schemes, information on modern farming practices, agriculture and forest contribute significantly to the State’s income. ICT has the potential to significantly improve this contribution. In doing so, Government of Chhattisgarh seeks to create an IT environment in the state wherein investments in IT are not only encouraged but actively facilitated.
We aim to achieve quality and excellence in state government services to citizens, state transactions with citizens and businesses, and internal state governmental operations/functions through the strategic deployment of information technologies.
The State of Chhattisgarh recognizes the importance of Information and Communication Technology as a key enabler in its economic development and improving the quality of life. With a view to make Chhattisgarh an IT enabled state progressively, CHiPS has come up with the “Electronics, IT and ITeS Investment Policy of Chhattisgarh 2014 – 2019”.
