E-Governance In India: Success And Failures

E-governance in India has failed to make the necessary impact. Of course, one or two e-governance initiatives of India have been successful but in totality e-governance is a big failure in India. This has happened because India has neither a mandatory legal framework for e-governance nor are there any policies or strategies for effective e-governance. Even the proposed draft electronic services delivery bill 2011 of India is nothing more than legal jargon with no practical significance and utility.

Keeping in mind the past record of India, nothing much can be expected even from the framework for citizen participation in NEGP. This is so because the citizen to government (C2G) participation in India has largely been confined to just comments giving by public with little appreciation of the same. Further, international organisations and programmes like World Bank and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have “never ensured accountability” from India while granting funds and grants.
