750px-bjp-flagsvgBJP - One of the major contenders for this season's political victors are high on this year's polls. They have left no stone unturned when it comes to web based campaigning. You must have seen all the colourful ads of Shri Lal Krishna Advani ji via Goodle adsense. BJP has very recently released their IT vision policy.  Below we present some of the note worthy points from the document. You can read the entire document on slideshare. Provision for a multipurpose national identity card with Citizen Identification Number (CIN) something similar to US's concept of a Social Security number. This identification will replace all other major identification methods.

Penetration of Broadband Internet in every town and village, with unlimited upload and download data transfer limits that too at cable TV prices.

VoIP will get more personal, as the document also mentions about provision of unrestricted VoIP. Also, Video-conferencing to be made affordable and universally accessible.

Full support fot the Open Standard and more and more use of Open Source Software in Government Offices.

Domestic hosting industry to be promoted to minimise international bandwith charges.
