The department of electronics and IT has moved a note on the next phase of national e-governance plan (NeGP) for inter-ministerial consultation. After incorporating the feed back, the department will send a note to the cabinet for its approval. This will be done within two months, a senior DeitY official said, while stating that a detailed project report (DPR) on the next phase of the plan would be posted on the department's portal shortly.
In total, the new plan would have over 10 new mission mode projects (MMPs), including financial inclusion. The other key MMPs include parliament, state legislative assemblies, road and highways, agriculture 2.0, national GIS, rural development, social benefits, women and child development and language localization. The list is tentative though, the final list may have more MMPs, the official said.
The current 31 MMPs don't cover the entire gamut of citizen services. While adding new projects and services, the NeGP 2.0 would help departments to re engineer processes and computerise their processes on an end to end basis. It would also lead to optimal utilisation of IT infrastructure created under the first phase. As of now the utilisation is 50-60%.
Out of 252 services planned under NeGP, 222 are already operational in 19 states. Out of the 31 MMPs, 14 are completely delivering services. At present 11.6 crore transactions are being recorded every month through these services, the official said.
The initial plan, delivering services on the internet, did not succeed in providing them at citizen’s doorstep. Though it laid the infrastructure, including wide area networks and data centres across most states, it failed in electronic delivery of services on an end to end basis.
