Background- It has been 8 years of being an author. For the last 8 years I wrote more than 50 articles on law, social issue. Four years ago I wrote an article on E-governance and on 2020 I posted it on youth ki aawaj. Today is the digital era and the e-governance is that smart move with the help of information technology and technological advance to eradicate the distance between people and government.


E-governance literally can be defined as the digitalization of government service. Electronic Governance or e-governance is the procedure of delivering government service with the help of information and communication technology. E-governance is citizen-centric. It was introduced to bring transparency, speed, efficiency, accountability in governance. E-governance has a wider concept than e governance because with the help of information and communication technology e-governance provides correct information to the public about the various departments, its role, and function, etc.

Previously in all countries, work would go on manually by its employees or public servants. The invention of computers and the internet changed the scenario and its impact on humankind and its easy and quickly accessible nature force the lawmaker to think if it can be introduced in providing governance. Previously in every government offices for submitting tax or for applying for any certificate, scholarship, there was a long queue of the public.

It would hamper so much time and effects the governance badly. E-governance was a step to make governance more citizen-centric because the government should be by the people, of the people, for the people. In the early 1990s, despite the substantial deployment of computer technology in the back offices of government, most public officials usually communicated in person or by memo, letter, or telephone. In the late 1990s to early 2000, e-governance took shape and every private and public undertaking started digitalization.

Every invention and creation in this world is not perfect that’s why in this research, I did not intend to look into the problem and loopholes which are already known to us but tried to find the way by which India can fulfil the dream of Constitution maker.
