Dear Sajith,

Congratulations on this wonderful project in which you have used GIS so

May I request you to present this project at the *7th International
Conference on E-Government (ICEG-2010)* that we are organising at *Indian
Institute of Management Bangalore* from *April 22 to 24, 2010*. The
ICEG-2010 Conference will have 3 major themes:

   - Public Health
   - Micro-finance
   - E-Government and M-Government

Details about the Conference are available at http://www.iceg.net/2010.
Please review. I will be happy to provide any clarifications.

If you or your team members could submit a paper or case study or a
presentation on this major e-government initiative, your project would get
tremendous exposure and would also be very topical.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Shashank Garg
