As the country marks the Civil Services Day on Saturday, it is the perfect occasion to realise the prominent role these bureaucrats play in the nation building. It is also a time to remember how the nation’s progress and holistic development is being ensured each day in real life, bringing ease to the common man’s life at large.
Disseminating the message and meaning of progress from the top corridors of power to the least heard voices of the society, civil servants are certainly playing an unmatchable role towards nation building.
Be it most innovative methodologies, finest practices, initiatives, or anything, the bureaucrats play a significant role towards bringing the much-needed change. They are those unsung heroes who perform and perish without even being noticed by the people in whose service they dedicate their career.
As e-Governnance — a relatively new system of bringing transparency in administration and taking governance to all with the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the country — is gaining currency, there is vital need to understand, discuss and share best practices and discuss challenges.
In this light, the eGov, an initiative of Elets Technomedia Private Ltd, holds a distinct place.
Through its print, online, and knowledge conferences, Asia and Middle East’s premier technology and media research organisation is disseminating not just the governance but the force behind it — civil servants.
eGov magazine — Asia and Middle East’s first magazine on e-Governance
Founded in 2005, the monthly magazine is published in both print and online formats. It is focussed exclusively on the use of ICT for bringing efficiency, accountability and transparency to various citizen and business related initiatives of the government.
eGov — Documenting Initiatives, Best Practices on Governance
In the pursuit of being everyone’s first stop for what’s new and what’s next in e-Governance, eGov also aims to offer thousands of its readers an in-depth coverage of new e-Governance models.
Today, the who’s who in the administration and industry disseminate their ideas and innovations through the pages of our magazine and conferences being held across India for over a decade.
Our online portal (http://egov.eletsonline.com/) today exists as one of the largest repository on the governance system of India. Carrying a huge number of articles, special features, interviews and personal blogs, the platform exists as a comprehensive platform, confluencing views and visions, and sharing challenges and solutions for the people who administer policies for national building.
eGov today covers all aspects of e-Governance – from new technological advances in ICT to the ways in which common citizens benefit when their interactions with government departments are through digital interfaces and the myriad issues involved in implementation of e-Governance initiatives.
The eGov magazine’s biggest advantage is its ability to carry the views of all the stakeholders in e-Governance domain – policymakers, experts, industry leaders, administrators and the academia.
Our experienced team of editors, researchers, and marketers take a 360-degree approach for creating content – breaking news, feature articles and interviews – that can keep steadily expanding global audience well-informed on issues of e-Governance.
Conferences — Premier Platform to Discuss Governance Models
Over the years, eGov’s parent organisation Elets Technomedia, under the leadership of Dr Ravi Gupta, the CEO and Editor-in-Chief eGov magazine, has spread its wings in India and across the world. Elets’ conferences are steadily fascinating various policymakers, experts, thought leaders and industry leaders from IT and e-Governance, Health, Education, Urban Development, and the BFSI sectors.
Since 2003, the organisation has been championing the cause of the Governments, building knowledge-sharing platforms and highlighting importance of ICT for governance, health, education, urban development, and banking and finance sectors through conferences, publications, and knowledge portals.
Be its eGov, digitalLEARNING, eHealth or The Banking & Finance Post publications, they have highlighted the role of ICT and innovations to build a Knowledge Society.
Elets’ global conferences have invariably created knowledge sharing platforms of top-notch thinkers, and industry leaders linked to various arenas. Be it eASIA, Malaysia, in 2006 or eASIA, Sri Lanka, 2009; eASIA, Bangladesh, in 2011 or Global Innovation Conference, UK, 2016 or World Education Summits in India and Dubai were just a few of them.
On the occasion of Civil Services Day, eGov’s Editor-in-Chief Dr Ravi Gupta said: “Saluting the crucial role our bureaucrats are making to build the New India, I wish you all ‘Happy Civil Services Day’. On this occasion, I seek to underline that our bureaucrats are those real heroes who deserve every word of appreciation for being the force behind, India’s laurels at world stage. Jai Hind!”
