E-governance - A Revolution

Electronic Governance is definitely a revolution in the history of Indian government. This is something which seems impossible few year back. But today it is a reality; we all can enjoy and make our lives much more comfortable and relaxed.

What is e-governance? This is the application of information and communication technology (ICT) for delivering government services to the citizens in a convenient, efficient and transparent manner. There are four basic models i.e. government to citizens, government to employees, government to government and government to business.

Intel is one of the top most innovative technology companies. They always focus on betterment of work process. They are giving complete support to the government to have a dream of #Digital India.

Government should be applauded for taking such initiative as this will transform India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy. This will not only provide access, equity and empowerment to the masses but also give transparent, affordable and efficient public service delivery closer to the door of citizens.

The main focus area of e-governance is to confer public service delivery, connected government, integrated application systems, participatory and democratic governance and capacity building. It will provide single window access point for citizens to avail government services both informational and transactional through Internet availability.

Today not only urban but rural areas have an excess of internet facilities which is blessing in disguise. Now each and every citizen will have a right to use this service wherein they can get information, submit their application, make their payment, check their status and even complain online without standing in a long queue. This in turn increase their productivity and efficiency and leads to better economic growth of our country.

In a country where there is a corruption in every step of life, e-governance is an absolute boon. Corruption has been cited as one of the most prevalent and persistent challenges in enhancing economic growth and improving quality of citizens across the globe. But with the help of e-governance, corruption can be reduced as there will be less interaction with official, speeding up of decision and reducing human errors.

“Transparency is the key to e-governance and e-governance is the only way of transparent governance” - NaMo.
