Patil told reporters that, “We have achieved transparency in execution of all development projects through the ‘Gandhi Saakshi Kayaka’ software. The software and other ICT applications have helped the department in implementing the works in an efficient and responsible way. The Union Panchayat Raj ministry has chosen Karnataka once again for the prestigious award,” he said.

At the state-level, Kodagu ZP, Puttur and Sagar Taluk Panchayats and Malige Grama Panchayat in Thirthahalli taluk have been selected for the E-Award.
