The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. With India becoming one the most attractive destinations for business and smart administration, e-Governance has emerged as a major tool in terms of improving efficacy and bringing the much expected change. The eGov magazine has dedicated itself to document the odyssey of this big transformation, writes Elets News Network (ENN).
Riding on the spirit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s favourite initiatives ‘Make in India’, ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’, and ‘Digital India’, the nation is creating waves globally.
E-governance, an effective way of providing governance through technology, is being used as a major weapon to transform the common man’s life, while easing procedures for theGovernment to execute policies and deliver services for the common good, ensuring economic growth and bringing the social change.
All this is happening with the use of ICT-based technologies, with eGov playing a pioneering role as a magazine focussed on e-governance.
The eGov, a premier magazine, has been playing a role of a prime witness to all this transformation since 2005 and recording major developments or finest practices being applied in the system through a series of special stories, interviews, case studies and guest columns.
The eGov magazine is India’s first and only dedicated English language magazine on e-governance.
