The rise of electronic governance is a striking phenomenon transforming governments across the globe. India’s National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) has put forth the vision of seeing India as one of the top nations of the world in providing online services to its citizens. Capacity building is one of NeGP’s stated goals to help translate its vision to reality, and here, TAPMI has taken a pioneering step by launching an executive program on e-Governance – the first of its kind in the country.
Aims and Objectives
The aims and objectives of the Center for e-Governance Research and Education’ [CeGRE] are to:
The CeGRE is expected to:
Produce work that relevant and useful to other academic institutions for further research and action.
Provide support to government departments and functionaries. By developing clarity on key success factors and constructing appropriate frameworks for project implementation, likelihood of successful outcome can be increased.
There is no doubt that electronic governance is intended for good governance and social transformation. But the path to transformation is never easy or straightforward: the grim reality is that most e-Governance projects fail. They fail, more often than not, in delivering on the promise, and the cost is huge. In the face of such a reality, acknowledging that the journey to newness is filled with potholes of chaos and complexity, the CeGRE has begun its mission with tenacity.
