UST Global will help Madhya Pradesh Government to digitize its 377 urban local bodies. The company has inked a deal of 7 years with the MP Government, worth $30 million.
As part of the deal, UST Global will help these bodies provide facilities such as electronic bill payments and online filing of grievances to its citizens. Overall, it will support the state’s projects in water, electricity, public health and transportation outlined in the Chief Minister’s infrastructure development manifesto, Vision 2018.
The company has also announced its “Impact India” programme, under which it will train and hire 10,000 differently-abled individuals across the country over three years. This is apart from the 5,000 people that it plans to hire for expansion during the same period.
Sajan Pillai, CEO, UST Global, said, “We are delighted to partner with the state of Madhya Pradesh to build a robust framework for good governance, accelerated economic growth, and inclusive social development. This alliance firmly establishes our vision to be a successful business that uses both technology and resources to transform the society for greater good.”
In addition to e-governance projects in India, UST Global is witnessing huge potential in SMAC (social, mobility, analytics, cloud) and cybersecurity. It now offers cutting-edge cybersecurity services in association with Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency.
