The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MoCIT) on Tuesday launched the first ever e-governance center in Kabul which will handle a wide-range of services in this field, including the delivery of electronic identity cards, work license, driving license, certificates and passports.
The e-governance system will also help in overcoming corruption, said Communications and Information Technology Minister Shahzad Aryubi.
“It will help people to overcome the challenges they face around traffic system, health, education, voting, passport and all these issues are tackled with the help of their identity cards,” the minister said.
“It helps people to save their time and bring ease in processing their works and decrease corruption,” said Humayoun Qayoumi, Acting Minister of Finance.
Electronic governance or e-governance is the application of information and communication technology for delivering government services, exchange of information, communication transactions, integration of various stand-alone systems and services between government-to-citizen government-to-business government-to-government government-to-employees as well as back-office processes and interactions within the entire government framework.
Afghans have been constantly complaining about the problems they face in government institutions in the delivery of services.
