Rajasthan to get first blockchain tech-based centre of excellence

Rajasthan will shortly get the first-ever centre of excellence based on blockchain technology and artificial intelligence, for which a memorandum of understanding has been signed with Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur. The State government intends to strengthen e-governance through the new centre.

The MoU, signed between the Rajcomp Info Services Limited and IIT-Kanpur here on Thursday, is expected to increase transparency and enhance security in the use of modern e-governance technologies and ensure the integrity of critical data of various projects, for which the blockchain-based solutions will be evolved.

State Information Technology Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore said at the MoU signing ceremony that the two institutions would work together to achieve the objective of utilising blockchain technology and artificial intelligence from “lab to land” and from research to the real-time usage. He said the IIT-Kanpur had established its reputation globally in the field of blockchain technology.

Mr. Rathore said the IT Department would provide world class services to the people of the State in the domains of land registration, financial transactions and health care through the centre of excellence. The department had already taken several initiatives to provide modern technology-based services, he said.

Rajcomp Info Services Limited managing director Indrajeet Singh and Manindra Agrawal, professor in IIT-Kanpur’s Department of Computer Science and Engineering, signed the MoU. IT Department’s Secretary Arti Dogra was among those present on the occasion.
