Ministry of Panchayati Raj has formulated a new centrally sponsored scheme for e- governance in panchayati raj institutions . Under this scheme, village and block Panchayats will be provided computers and related hardware and software.

The states/UTs will select the Service Centre Agencies (SCA) for procurement of specified services through competitive bidding process. The SCA will be responsible for providing required services which will include IT infrastructure setup, arrangement for connectivity and consumables, etc. as per agreed Service Levels.
The objective of this scheme is to equip panchayats with various ICT tools for database and planning, online financial accounting & reporting, improved delivery of citizen-centric services, scheme implementation and monitoring and dynamically maintaining unique codes for individuals, assets & utilities.
