  Secretary, DeitY:"MyGov.in now has seven lakh member”.

New Delhi: Speaking at the ET Edge e-Governance forum, Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) secretary Sh. RS Sharma said that new government's broader vision was to transform India into a knowledge economy through the Digital India program.

"Without a robust digital infrastructure, it is not possible to deliver e-services while digital empowerment is another key area," said Sh. Sharma, and added that creating an app ecosystem for the e-Governance platform was imperative.

The government is planning to put all Central government staff onto the e-governance platform by March 2015, Sh. Sharma informed and added that they have kicked-off with government's Delhi's employee-base of close to two lakh.

Launched in July by Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Modi, MyGov.in has seven lakh members today. He said that “The platform allows every citizen to participate in governance. The government is also redesigning mission-mode projects (MMP) so as to make them efficient.”

The existing National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) comprises of more than 30 mission-mode projects, which were further classified as state, Central or integrated projects.

Digital identity is an empowering tool and it can be leveraged in many areas. If a mobile device is connected with digital identity, it would empower citizens immensely, Sharma added.

The National Institute of Smart Governance (NISG) and the Maharashtra state government has undertaken a pilot to digitize certificates.

The ambitious Digital India initiative is worth Rs. 1.13 lakh crore.
