Chandigarh: The Haryana Government is creating
a database of residents in the state under the Centre`s UID
project which the state has begun to implement.

The database would be integrated with the delivery of
citizen-centric services under various social welfare
programmes of the state government to ensure that benefits
reached the target audience, an official spokesman on Saturday said.
He said a number of flagship projects - PDS, driving
licences, vehicle registration, administration of commercial
taxes and integrated financial management system, had been
identified and taken up for implementation under the project.

The spokesman said expansion of the base of IT industry,
IT education and increased usage of information and
communication technology in governance constituted the key
areas of focus of the government, and the new Industrial and
Investment Policy-2011 planned various interventions in this
regard.
Concrete steps have been taken for creation of adequate
backbone infrastructure through the State Wide Area Network,
he said.

He said since vocational education and skill development
were critically important, a state-level Skill Development
Mission had been set up to ensure inter-sectoral coordination.

The mission is doing resource-mapping for offering
training in identified skills in various technical
institutions of the state.

The state government plans to set up 13 ITIs and 96 Skill
Development Centres in the PPP mode, he added.
