Vote online by 2024

T N Seshan threw a bold idea to the right audience at the right place, while receiving the Life Time Achievement Award from the Cyber Security and Privacy Foundation at IIT-Madras. The former Chief Election Commissioner, suggested online voting across the country by 2024, with an infrastructure that would enable smooth flow of the process. A lot of money and time can be saved if such a process gets rolled out, he said. Seshan should  know: he was the man who introduced the electronic voting machine

To make online voting possible, Seshan suggested trying out a sample of a district or a village by 2014, a larger sample by 2019 and whole of India by 2024. By 2024 we may click to choose our candidate.

M R Sivaraman, former executive director, International Monetary Fund, was also presented the Life Time Achievement Award. As one who introduced the PAN Card, computerised customs clearance and computerised finances of the Madhya Pradesh government way back in 1982, this former revenue secretary stressed on the need for civil servants to be truthful and law abiding.

Tareen launches strategic consulting

Australia’s longest serving Trade Commissioner in India (since 1995), A K Tareen stepped down as the Government of South Australia’s Senior Trade Commissioner. With Chennai being the largest consulate of Australia in India, Tareen helped open three more branch offices at Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Kochi. As the Trade Commissioner, he had designed and led market entry strategies for India and South Asia in automotive, health and retail food sectors.

The best way to gain people’s attention is to do best the thing they liked the most and Tareen understood this perspective well. He promoted South Australia through two activities that an Indian relates so easily-closely, cricket and movies. He had organised a cricket match between the Tamil Nadu state Ministers and a visiting delegation led by the Australian Prime Minister during the earlier regime of J Jayalalithaa as chief minister. He did this again during the DMK regime when M K Stalin led the team.

In association with Adlabs he made a film in the exotic location of South Australia with Priyanka Chopra and organised the weeklong Adelaide film festival, thus turning all heads towards South Australia.

Tareen was rated the best promoter of Australia in Asia Pacific by Australian businesses in an independent survey and was nominated to the Austrade global high achiever’s award. Tareen will provide strategic advice to governments, businesses and industry association both in Australia and India through his newly launched AKT Strategic Consulting.
