Why can't Thailand make it on-line application and approval similar to "Thailand Pass" during pandemic times?

Indian nationals cannot enter Visa exempt.
They must apply for a VOA (Visa on arrival), which they can apply for online before entry.

Alternatively, they could apply for a Tourist Visa from the Thai Embassy.
