About the Book

Good governance requires, amongst other things, decisions based on “sets of information” or knowledge, and recognition of this information and knowledge by the decision makers and people alike. Digitisation of this information and making it available on a network which is accessible to all individuals opens up possibilities for use of this information by everyone- paving the way for Digital Governance or E-governance. Introduction of Digital Governance ensures that citizens can participate in, and influence decision-making processes which affect them closely. This book provides insights about the concept of e-governance and m-governance evolved in Indian scenario and how much it is required for transparency and accountability on the part of government and at the same time it is also a toll to increase the participation of people in policy making by empowering them with the right information at right time.

The use of Digital Governance transforms governance from “representative” to a more “individual based” form, and from “passive” to being “pro-active”. It does not require an individual to be based in the local constituency to influence or benefit from governance delivery services. Further as use of digital governance leads to closer contact of individuals with decision-makers/officials in the government, the impact is immediate. On the whole, it puts greater access and control over governance mechanism in the hands of individuals, and in process leads to more transparent, accountable and efficient governance.
