Apex committee on National E-Governance Plan to meet today

Friday, July 16, 2010

NEW DELHI - The Apex Committee on National E-Governance Plan (NeGP), chaired by Cabinet Secretary K M Chandrasekhar, will meet here today to review all 27 Mission Mode Projects (MMPs) being implemented under it.

According to an official press release, the Secretary of the Ministry or Department of the concerned MMP will present before the Committee the progress on the project, highlighting the expected outcomes.

The presentation will also detail the budget allocations, the timelines and milestones achieved, services being currently offered to the citizens in electronic mode and services that would ultimately be offered to them on completion of the project implementation.

The NeGP was approved in May 2006 with the vision to make all Government services accessible to the common man in his locality, through common service delivery outlets.

This was also to ensure efficiency, transparency and reliability of such services at affordable costs to realise the basic needs of the common man.

Considering the multiplicity of agencies and the three levels of Central Government, State Government and Local Self-Government involved in the implementation of the NeGP, and the importance government accords to improving governance, NeGP is monitored and reviewed at the highest level.

The Prime Minister’s Committee on NeGP provides leadership, prescribes deliverables and milestones, and monitors periodically the implementation of the NeGP. (ANI)
