 Dr Sanjay Kolte, CEO, Pune Smart City Development Corporation:
+ Technology is at the centre of smart city development. We have an integrated command and control centre wherein we monitor the entire city through smart cameras and receive regular feeds. Moreover, we have to ensure sustainability alongside technological advancements.
 Prashant Kumar Mittal, Director – Infrastructure, e-Services, and IT Management, NeGD, Ministry of IT, Govt of India:
+ While working on NREGA, we worked with banks and using data analytics we reduced failures up to 1% and improved timely payments up to 95%.
+ In times to come, everything that the government delivers should be paperless, cashless, and presenceless.
 Shubham Gupta, CEO, Zila Parishad, Dhule, Maharashtra:
+ We should develop an algorithm wherein the government should not have to wait for people to apply for schemes but we can automatically map right beneficiaries, register them, and deliver benefits to them directly.
 Piyush Somani, CMD, ESDS & President, CCICI:
+ Big jargons of the present-day IT industry should not bother government officers. They should rather focus on simpler solutions that can actually be easy to deploy, easy to operate, and bring out results. An example could be a ‘low code no code platform’.
