RTE is pleased to announce the installation of an electronic service for the public sector.
This is an essential step to allow us to provide our customers with the best electronic service available.
The electronic board is an integral part of the public service, which will ensure the safety of the people, businesses and public infrastructure and that the service providers are responsive to customers demands.
The service provider is the first one to provide the electronic board and to provide it in a cost effective manner.
The Electronic Board will be installed in every public sector building within our network of over 5,000 public buildings in the State of Maharashtra.
We have been working for the past several years to secure the necessary permits and the necessary approvals to build the electronic service in the first place.
The first phase of the installation process will begin on October 6, 2018, and will be followed by the second phase, which begins in November 2018.
The next phase of building is due to start in January 2019.
The electric boards installed by us will be free of charge.
The installation of the electronic boards in all our public buildings will be completed by February 2020.
The Government of Maharashtra is responsible for the installation and maintaining of all electronic boards, whether they are public or private.
We are pleased to work with our partner, Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission, (Meralco) to ensure the success of the project.
The electrical board will be able to transmit data between the electronic services providers and the private service providers.
This will improve the efficiency of the electrical grid and will also allow the Government of India to provide free electricity to the citizens of Maharashtra by reducing the cost of providing electricity to private sector.
The electrification of the State is a major priority for the Government, and Meralco will play a crucial role in its implementation.
The public sector will be fully utilised in the implementation of this project.
With the electric board installed, the public will be given the option to choose between a public or a private service.
It will enable the citizens to have the best service possible.
The Meralcos electronic board will enable us to offer services in the most efficient manner possible.
This project is being done at a time when we are experiencing the economic slowdown, and as a consequence we need to work very hard to increase our electricity generation capacity.
Our electrification efforts will be very welcome.
In addition to the electronic Board, MeralCo has also designed a new building at Nellore where a large part of our electrical power is generated, and it will be a major asset for the State.
MeralCO will also use the new building to provide a public access facility and a public address system for our public sector and to enable public service provision.
This includes an internet-based phone network, an internet gateway, and internet cafés, as well as the use of CCTV cameras and cameras to monitor the services offered by the public.
The electricity grid and the public services will also benefit from the availability of this new building.
Mere hours before the installation, we had received approval from the Chief Minister of Maharashtra to proceed with the installation.
We hope that the installation is a success and we look forward to the work of the Meralcans team.
Our electronic service will be available to all our customers in the next few weeks.
