Any ideas on governance? Log on to mygov.nic.in [DNA : Sunday]
(DNA : Sunday Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) New Delhi: Attempting to make his government interactive and involve public in decision making process, prime minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched MyGov, an interactive platform, where people will be able to contribute and share their thoughts with government. The government has claimed, it was a step towards granting people surajya.
What is MyGov? It is an interactive platform, where people will be able to contribute and share their thoughts with government.
What is the reason behind launching it? Modi said in the past 60 days he noticed that people wanted to contribute towards nation-building. "The only thing they required was an opportunity to showcase their contribution. The MyGov platform is a technology-driven medium that would provide this opportunity to contribute towards good governance," he said.
How does MyGov work? The platform presents an opportunity to the citizens to both 'Discuss' and 'Do.' There are multiple theme-based discussions on MyGov where a wide range of people would share their thoughts and ideas. Further, any idea shared by a contributor will also be discussed on these discussion forums, allowing constructive feedback and interaction.
For those who wish to go beyond discussions, they can volunteer for various tasks and submit their entries. These tasks would then be reviewed by other members and experts. Once approved, these tasks can be shared by those who complete the task and by other members on MyGov. Every approved task would earn credit points for completing the task.
The platform has been divided into various groups namely Clean Ganga, Girl Child Education, Clean India, Skilled India, Digital India, Job Creation. Each group consists of online and onground tasks that can be taken up by the contributors.
Who will maintain the website? National Informatics Centre, Department of Electronics and Information Technology would implement and manage the platform MyGov .
