Direction (Q. 1-8): Read the passage carefully and answer the questions given below it
In this age, when people's involvement in day-to-day matters is mounting, it is the electronic system that offers a potential service infrastructure which could, with careful programming, probably take care of a very large element of what we describe as mechanical, procedural governance without all the distortions, corruptions and harassments which constitute the daily misery of the average citizens. Ofcourse, the electronic system will only behave to the extent that they are properly programmed. But this is not a difficult job today.
Once we move our minds beyond the more use ot electronic revolution for business efficiency and higher profitabilities and apply it to the task of reducing the routine repetitive activities of governance, we will conserve time and energy for more important and creative tasks. We can rather say that electronic revaluation can make far better and more effective handling of real everyday problems, additionally providing the basic service of computerized information banks. Even in less developed conditions, the potential of the electronic network to take over a great deal of what is called bureaucratic 'paper work' has been vividly demonstrated. Licensing system involving endless formfilling in endless copies; tax matters which baffle miUions of citizens, particularly those who have nothing to hide; election systems which require massive supervisory mobilization orreferendums based on mini-scale samples which seldom reflect the reality at the social base. At all these points, the electronic advantage is seen and recognised. However, we must proceed further.
It is not a difficult task to foresee a situation where the citizen with his personalised computer entry card, his 'number', is able to enter the electronic network for a variety of needs now serviced by regiments of officials, high and low. In fact, it is already happening in a lot of countries. From simple needs, we will move to a more complex servicing, and ultimately into creativity or what is called 'artificial intelligence'.
