Through video conferencing, officials can expedite real time exchange of information to counter the threat of Coronavirus and accelerate responses in emergencies.
Punjab Information Technology Board, as directed by Chief Secretary Punjab, has extended video conferencing system among government departments and officials in line with the social distancing protocol of Punjab Government.
Officials can now conduct and participate in meetings via video conferencing on their laptops, mobiles, or tablets not only from their offices but from anywhere, homes or even cars.
Now it is not necessary for government officials to come specific government offices in their respected areas for video conference meeting.
This step is taken to ensure smooth operations without disruption and to facilitate critical communication despite restricted mobility.
Through this extended system, officials can expedite real time exchange of information to counter the threat of Coronavirus and accelerate responses in emergencies.
Chief Secretary Punjab Major Azam Suleman conducted the first video meeting on Saturday.
Video conferencing is the best solution for disaster response agencies to track the field persons and to deliver the instructions, so as to make a decision regarding the plan of action that have to be compiled during the time of traffic jams or hurricanes or any disasters.
