Main Article Content
Globally, the electronic transactions have increased over the past years. In order to reinstitute the democracy to its veracious connotation with the help of improvisation of the participation of the citizen in the governing process by giving feedback and access to information and overall participation of the citizen in the decision making, the e-governance has become the need of the hour. It has enabled the citizens to know and be updated with the government’s policies. In a country with the largest population, it is difficult for the government to reach out to every individual, hence, the technology driven government is a momentous. E-governance helps in providing an access to Government information and services to the public and other agencies in an efficient, transparent and cost-effective way. Furthermore, the National E-Governance Plan vision to: “Make all Government services accessible to the common man in his locality through common service delivery outlets and ensure efficiency, transparency and reliability of such services at affordable costs to realise the basic needs of the common man” have not only made the government information and services accessible to common man but has also increased transparency and accountability. Due to limited financial resources and lack of legal and technical infrastructure, E-governance has posed challenges. The purpose of this paper is to provide the gist of E-governance by providing an overview of the E-governance along with its objectives, stages, advantages & disadvantages, challenges and strategies for the effective implementation of E-governance. Furthermore, it will analyse the National E-Governance Plan.
