Governance

Governments today are dealing with the challenges of interoperability, data accessibility and integrity, security, privacy, governance and compliance. To restructure and transform the governmental processes, Government systems would require having in place a solution that can streamline the execution of government services in an efficient way. Blockchain – a technology with a distributed architecture, offers compelling opportunity for Government entities looking to establish an institution that would primarily focus on experimentation and innovation, while maximize efficiency and productivity.

In fact, Blockchain adoption can turn out to be a sensible step undertaken by the Government to push its quest of turning the country into a digital economy while remaining accountable for every action.

How Can Blockchain Improve Governance?

Benefit Distribution:

The regular fund distribution system with a centralized authority for validating transactions are highly inefficient as the funds released by the issuer (government) fails to reach the intended beneficiaries. A Blockchain driven benefit distribution system generates crypto-tokens, which is generated and approved from the issuer to the organizing departments and then ultimately to the intended beneficiaries who would be able to redeem them. With the recorded transactions in its ledger along with its’ smart contract functionality, Blockchain eliminates intermediaries thereby increasing transparency while reducing transaction time and cost.

Document verification:

Ascertaining the authenticity of certificates issued by issuing institutions have become a major cause of concern these days due to prevalence of malpractices like fraud and misrepresentation of records. This issue is further compounded with Issuing/verifying institutions collecting high fees, as well as entailing long wait time for processing and verifying the certificates. With Blockchain, it becomes possible to have a digital certificate network in place with issuing institutions, government, and the citizens being the participants of the public Blockchain. With a Blockchain powered system in place, the process of certificate verification will be simplified, issue of fake certificates will be curtailed, the time involved in verification and sending physical certificates will be reduced.

Land Registration:

Land is a very appreciating asset and hold great value to people. Since, citizens do not have the trust amongst each other for title transfer, several governing bodies are involved for verification and substantiation. Also, since, documents are verified manually, chances of error or fraudulence are maximized. Since, land registry involves asset transfer among citizens, data security becomes a cause of concern as land registry data becomes open source. With a Blockchain based system in place all the aforesaid pain points related to land registry can be resolved. Blockchain provides a platform where data can be collected, stored and secured in an immutable, transparent and easy to access manner. This ensures integrity and indisputability of future change.

Farm Premium:

The impact of Blockchain in the agriculture can be far reaching. Right from land records, and electricity distribution to identifying land specific fertilizer requirements and optimizing the agri supply chain, Blockchain can streamline every aspect of the agri industry.
