According to the experts, Blockchain technology is an immutable public digital ledger, which means that once a transaction is recorded, it cannot be changed, and the blockchain is always secure due to the encryption function. Because the ledger is updated automatically, transactions are completed quickly and transparently. Because it is a decentralised system, no middleman fees are required, and the participants verify and certify the legitimacy of transactions. Blockchain may undoubtedly simplify government operations, streamline processes, reduce audit burdens, boost security, and maintain data integrity in specialised applications.

The successful applications of Blockchain in government services were also told by the expert speakers. In the field of e-governance, the government can reduce the service time period, as well as establish the authenticity of the certificates, by using blockchain technology in land registries, transport licenses, educational certificates, public service certificates, etc.

Shri Arvind Kumar Choudhary, ITS, Special Secretary, Department of IT, GoB, gave the vote of gratitude.
