Leveraging Emerging Technologies under Digital India
Vinay Thakur,  Prof. M N Doja,  Dr. Amir AA Faizi
Digital India programme is a flagship programme of Government of India with a vision to transform India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy. Its vision areas are centered on ‘Digital Infrastructure as a Utility to Every Citizen’, ‘Governance & Services on Demand’ and ‘Digital Empowerment of Citizens’. Digital India enables use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for an efficient, smooth and transparent way of functioning of Government and also providing government services to its citizens in a cost effective manner. Furthermore, it has been proven that e-governance can enhance the speed and efficiency of operations by streamlining processes, lowering costs, improving research capabilities and improving documentation and record-keeping. E-governance can be viewed as a subset off e-governance, and its focus is largely on improving administrative efficiency and reducing administrative corruption.
However, there is a relatively new emphasis that goes beyond the internal workings of e-government, where processes and technologies can directly engage the citizen with greater information and improve transparency, accountability and participation. Information and communication technology (ICT) is an emerging era and playing a vital role for the advancement of our society. As the popularity of ICT enabled application is increasing E-Governance has been established as a revolution not only in developed country but also in developing nations. The sole aim of E-Governance is to establish strong and transparent relationship between citizens, government organization and business organization so that a faith could be developed among all. In the paper the author has discussed about the use of different types of emerging technologies, their benefits and applications for achieving e-governance in a developing country like India.
