MyGov, an interactive platform created to ensure effective, participative governance, is now active on Facebook. Coming under DeitY, Ministry of Communications & IT, Government of India, this is a platform where citizens can participate in governance by giving their views and opinions on various important issues of the country.
The platform comprises various sections, including Do, Discuss, Poll, Blog and Talk, offering citizens the opportunities to participate and express their ideas and views.
According to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, “MyGov is a technology-driven medium that will provide citizens an opportunity to contribute towards good governance.”
Speaking exclusively to eGov recently, Guarav Dwivedi, MyGov CEO, said- “MyGov is an innovative platform to build a partnership between citizens and the government with the help of technology for overall growth and development of India.”
He further said that the basic idea behind MyGov is that the expertise and talent, which is available within the country in plenty, should be used for various kinds of activities that relate to governance like designing of policies and implementation of programmes, and getting creative inputs from the citizens.
“For the very first time in the history of this country, citizens from across India are coming together to share their innovative ideas, thoughts and suggestions with the government in areas related to various policies, programmes, schemes, etc. MyGov aims to empower citizens to work hand-in-hand with the government,” he added.
