What is the use of deployment of Information Technology if not used- Waste of Tax Payers money
Department of Posts Govt. of India has deployed an online application to monitor tracking of speed post and registered posts article. This application in theoretical terms is a robust application which facilitates sender and intended receiver of the article to track the movement of articles sent through Speed Posts and Registered Posts. Govt. of India has spent lakhs of rupees in development and deployment of the technology. Is this money spent is being used to derive its intended benefits. The following is the tracking report for an article despatched at Rohini, Delhi on 7th January 2012 and the report has been taken on 31st January 2012 i.e after 25 days of the despatch. As the public can see that the last entry made in the software is 07/01/2012 and thereafter it has not been updated. If the Department of Posts dont want to update and use the technology then why the lakhs of rupees has been spent?? Is it not waste of Tax Payers money???
