The National e-Governance Plan
e-Governance in India is graduating from pilots to Mission Mode projects
The concept of e-governance is now a reality for Indian citizens. We are graduating from pilot e-governance projects to bigger Mission Mode projects. In this, the core strategy is to move ahead in a systematic manner, and the approach is to achieve success step by step.
The National e-Governance Plan (2003-2007) of Indian Government seeks to lay the foundation and provide the impetus for long-term growth of e-Governance within the country. The plan seeks to create the right governance and institutional mechanisms, set up the core infrastructure and policies and implement a number of Mission Mode Projects at the center, state and integrated service levels to create a citizen-centric and business-centric environment for governance. In 2005, the World Bank signalled its willingness to increase funding further (if required) for a range of e-governance initiatives in India as part of the first phase of the country's National e-Governance Plan (NeGP).
"All Government services accessible to the common man in his locality through a One-stop-shop (integrated service delivery) ensuring convenience, efficiency, transparency & reliability"
- Focus on Public Service Delivery & Outcomes
- Process Re-engineering & Change Management are critical
- Radically change the way government delivers services
- Centralized Initiative, Decentralized Implementation
- Implementation framework accordingly
- Project Implementation in Mission Mode
- Empowered Mission Teams - professionals & domain people
"Think Big, Start Small and Scale Fast"
The focus of NeGP is on the following.
- Adequate weightage must be given for quality and speed of implementation in procurement procedures for IT services.
- Incorporation of a suitable system of incentivisation of states to encourage adoption.
- The trend of delivery of services through common service centres should be encouraged and promoted.
- Wherever possible, services should be outsourced.
- The full potential for private sector investment should be exploited.
- Connectivity should be extended up to block level through NICNET/ SWANs.
- NeGP also envisages significant investments in areas such as government process re-engineering, capacity building, training, assessment and awareness. The plan is to be executed over a four-year period. An apex committee under the Cabinet Secretary is already in place for providing the strategic direction and management oversight.
