Author(s): Dr. Geetha Naik Vislavath
Abstract: Administration of public offices and public policies has veered its direction from the rustic bundles of papers and records towards the sophisticated digital environs wherein Tera Bytes and Peta Bytes of data pertaining to the governance of public offices is stored in centralized servers and retrieved by the stakeholders whenever needed. This development has also got a flipside in the form of data security which is vulnerable to hacking and cracking by the mischief groups. Off course government has got its own policy to safeguard the information of public offices, despite which there are spasmodic incidents reflecting the gaps in data management policies. It lead to the contemplation of technology stream not explored by Indian public offices at a length i.e. Block Chain Technology, the prospects of which need to be investigated to check whether it can make public office data more secured. It is the reason why a research paper titled “Prospects of block chain Technology in effective public administration” is brought to fore.
