Citizen-Centric E-Governance Workshop

In today's world, where accountability and performance measurements form the basis of Governments, where good governance is defined by transparent and clearly defined laws, where both citizens and govt. bodies need access to information and communication resources, eGovernance plays a very important

E-Governance can thus help improve government processes, connect its citizens, and build inter-linkages within the Government bodies and its clients, thereby, paving way for Simple Moral Accountable Responsive Transparent (SMART) governance.

In order for a Government to achieve these goals it must communicate and transact well with its clients, predominantly its citizens. For E-Governance to be transformational, it must collapse the existing political and
historical structures to construct a Government-citizen network.

In the recent years, there have been many E-Governance programs aimed at various segments of society. Similarly, there are various E-Governance conferences that showcase E-Governance initiative and the work done in implementing various schemes.

This workshop is different!
EGIL will host a citizen-centric workshop on eGovernance as a part of the 6th International Conference on eGovernance (ICEG 2008) at DMS, IIT-Delhi.

This workshop aims at giving a platform to the citizens what they want eGovernance to be? The services they would want the Government to provide using IT and the internet.

The citizen here could be an individual, a family, a small or large business, or some other entity that has to deal with government.

For this workshop, we invite individual citizens, or citizen groups, to submit their proposals /ideas.

The proposal should be no more than two pages long (Max 2 pages) and should contain the following:
   - An expressive title
   - The motivation for the proposed service
   - The current state of affairs with respect to this service in India (and elsewhere in the world, if known)
   - Who will benefit if the service is E-delivered
   - Some estimate of the overall benefits to the society/economy at large

The proposals will be screened by a committee to evaluate the impact of the proposed scheme and its feasibility.

The best six proposals will be invited for presentation. The best proposal would be awarded a prize by the evaluation committee.
