The Indian Government has approved an ambitious programme for 323 cities in the country to provide e-Governance services.
These e-Governance service will enable citizens to get birth and death certificates, pay property tax, water and power-bills and submit building plans online, anywhere anytime. The cabinet committee on economic affairs (CCEA) has approved the programme for INR 787 crore project in the 11th five-year plan. But the government is yet to decide whether it should be a separate centrally sponsored scheme or should be included in Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission. However, the Urban Development (UD) Ministry has requested the Planning Commission to sanction a separate scheme for e-Governance, as urban renewal mission covers only 43 cities and its funding pattern is also different.
The Urban Development ministry says that in the year 2007-08 as many as 35 cities will be covered under the e-governance programme.
