IT major Microsoft is to invest $1.7 billion in India and also partner the government of India in pushing e-Governance through National Institute for Smart Governance (NISG).
Microsoft has signed agreements with the government's Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) and the NISG, the 49 per cent government-owned non-profit company that promotes e-Governance in India. The e-Governance agreement would enable Microsoft and NISG to create a new class of applications and solutions that focus on optimising the delivery of government services in identified areas. Two new innovation centres, both tie-ups with the NISG in New Delhi and Hyderabad, are also to be set up by Microsoft. Microsoft will conduct pilot projects on workflow automation in government, e-Governance solutions and smart cards in these two centres.
