A Chronicle of Ideas in e-Governance

Views: 1.6K

Digital divide has started vanishing from the country, and the credit for that must also go to the myriad e-Governance initiatives that the central and state governments have launched.

The breathtaking developments in ICT have led to the creation of a global information  society. Through a range of online systems, people across the globe have become  interconnected and there are seminal changes in the way we live, learn, work and  collaborate with each other. In such a scenario, access to solutions that can provide latest  information have become potent tool for empowering the people and communities in their  quest for new opportunities, dignity and a better life.

As ICT continues to come up with even more efficient streams of information and conducting business, there is the fear that the divide between haves and have-nots, within and across countries, might intensify. That is why e-Governance systems are necessary to ensure that all sections of society are able to take  advantage of the better technologies as they become available. e-Governance systems, based  on local languages, can be especially effective in India where large numbers of people in rural  areas are not conversant with the proper usage of ICTs.

On 15th and 16th of June  2012, Elets Technomedia Pvt. Ltd., will be celebrating e-Governance by holding the eWorld  Forum, 2012, at Le Méridien hotel in New Delhi. This is one of the most prestigious  e-Governance events of the year, and it is primarily bolstered by the participation of eminent  figures from the government, industry, academia, and the social and cultural  landscape.

The June 2012 issue of eGov magazine has been designed to be a precursor to the  eWorld Forum, 2012. We have interacted with a many leading stakeholders from the field of  ICT to come up with opinions that provide us with a glimpse of what the discussions at the two  day eWorld Forum will be like. In the pages that follow we have tried to cover the topic of  almost every session that we are going to have at the eWorld Forum.

The interviews and  the write-ups provide a succinct account of the views of the leading stakeholders on the  various aspects of the e-Governance, which is now flowering in India and rest of the world.
