It has been more than six years since the Government launched the landmark, Digital India project that was created with a vision of transforming India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy. Today, the Digital India project has turned out to be one of the biggest success stories with several successes and landmark digital initiatives that have perhaps no parallel anywhere in the world.
Over the past one and a half decade, e-Governance in India has continuously evolved into a progressive Government program, from being an initiative for computerization of Government departments to Governance initiatives that focus on citizen centricity, service orientation and transparency.
The Covid-19 pandemic put to test these very e-Governance initiatives. India’s prowess in the information technology space and the use of it in providing services by various Municipal Administrations, State Governments and Central Government has been proved beyond doubt.
