Rajesh Aggarwal, 2014 Honoree

Secretary of IT
Government of Maharashtra
Mumbai, Maharashtra
A recent example of your leadership style:
I was given responsibility for leading a committee to recommend technology-driven reforms in the university examination system. I took this opportunity to lead from the front, held innumerable and continuous consultation sessions and workshops in towns across the state with various stakeholders and came up with the final report within two months. The complete recommendation was accepted by the state government and is now implemented.
To what extent do you embed IT workers in business units?
Through the Virtual IT Cadre system adopted by the state government, we are able to get officers and staff members in various departments to work closely with the IT group and carry out IT- and e-governance-related activities. In this way, we get internal champions in the department to drive IT and e-governance in close consultation with us.
