He demonstrated how data is being collected, registered, monitored and integrated into one single platform, e-Pragati.
At the Real Time Governance State Centre, he presented the infrastructure and operations of the RTG wing, including the strategy room, district centres and the 30 subject-matter specialists. Transactions, grievances and data from people’s hub, are continuously used to resolve problems and monitor satisfaction levels.
He said that the Praja Sadhikara Survey with Aadhar authenticated data, ROMS with sustainable development goals and the real time status of the state’s GVA and GSDP and the CORE dashboard with information about water levels, humidity, rainfall and other climatic conditions are all working in synchronisation.

“This is a new experiment, and I want to bring the best and latest technologies to integrate with knowledge. We have stabilised a 11% growth rate, and aim for 15% growth rate”, he explained.
Impressed with the RTG performance and initiative in administration, the Governor said, “With such a system in place, you have fixed many leakages in the system, whether administrative or financial. AP can soon easily achieve 15 per cent growth rate.”
