Rajasthan is bigger than many countries. We need to have such fairs (Digifests) in the state for people to get associated with us - whether it is a start-up, a common man, youth who wants to leverage the tools like IT and who can come out with innovative ideas, Akhil Arora, Principal Secretary at the Department of IT and Communications, told PTI.
Rajasthan DigiFest Bikaner hosted five events under the fest - Hackathon, Tec Rush, Startup Fest, IT expo and job fair.
Being organized by the state government's Information Technology and Communications department, the fifth edition of Rajasthan Digifest, which started here on July 25, concludes today.
While the first edition of the event was organized by the state government in Jaipur in 2016, the second and third were organized in the following year in Kota and Udaipur, respectively. The fourth edition was held earlier this year in Jaipur.
"We have got seven divisional headquarters. Even with this frequency, as of now, we have been able to cover only four of them, including Jaipur," Arora said.
"If we cover all the divisional headquarters, what we can ensure is that even the adjacent districts are able to participate and we take the message, the information, the service delivery mechanism and the opportunity to engage with us to all the concerned parties," he added.
