The Department of Information Technology was setup in March 2000.
Information Technology is an important and extremely effective tool through which development and progress can take place with the co-operation of all strata of society including government and the public. Chandigarh Administration is committed to providing responsive and effective administration for the welfare of the public keeping in view the national objectives.
Chandigarh is the first planned city in the country and still maintains its status as one of the best managed cities in the country. The excellent social infrastructure, large green spaces and its compact size make Chandigarh an ideal work environment. The quality of life in the City Beautiful is comparable to the best cities across the world.
