According to United Nations, e-Governance is a process of bringing effectiveness, efficiency, transparency, responsiveness, accountability, credibility, and inclusiveness into the governance systems. We can achieve the ideal of e-Governance only if we are working with proper goals in mind. We need to have the necessary infrastructure in place and we also need to have the trained man power

Human resource is as important as ICT infrastructure when it comes to the implementation of effective e-Governance, so we have to pay more attention to capacity building in various government departments

The creation of a vibrant IT infrastructure is the prerequisite for improvements in governance. There are basically two prominent aspects of governance, the first is the citizen centricity and the other is the internal functioning of the government

Managing Director, National Institute of Electronics & Information Technology
Today it is widely recognised that good governance is only possible through e-Governance. But it is also true that the ICT component in governance cannot be more than 15-20 percent. Governance is the major part. Ultimately it is the people in any department who are responsible for implementing the e-Governance systems

There is a trend now across for most government states to take the help of the outside consultants. There is a good and bad angle to it. In my opinion this exercise has to be done by a team where majority of the people should be the experts who have done the similar projects in the past

It’s not a question of IT in governance; it is also a question of how we utilise the infrastructure that is already there. We have to strive to use the IT systems effectively for providing maximum benefits to the common citizens

Additional Secretary, Ministry of Defence, Government of India
Good governance primarily includes three ideals – the first is that all the actions of the government should be in accordance with the rules and regulations and the law of the land; second is that no action of the government should be arbitrary; the third is that the government action should not be discriminatory on lines of caste, color or social status.

Principal Secretary, Department of Home, Government of Jammu & Kashmir

One big challenge in implementing IT in the governance structure is that some departments think that their power or privilege can be compromised if there is a transparent IT system in place. Such views need to be refuted and curbed, as maximum benefit to the people can only be there when there is IT implementation in a big way
