About the project

This project has been conceptualized as a national digital infrastructure for urban e-Governance. This platform is aimed at working on top-down, large-scale, systemic reform projects with the goal to rapidly configure and deploy State-wide governance platforms with high priority applications available.
The implementation arm conducts a thorough diagnostic exercise to identify and prioritize the critical interventions necessary for improving the urban e-Governance and supports the State on design and implementation of this platform, while also strengthening governance and other key enablers that are critical for reform. These interventions can focus on various components of urban e-Governance, while also improving key enablers, improving the administration and governance structures, and making the system more accountable to outcomes and performance.
