Manmohan Singh reviews implementation of national e-governance plan

New Delhi, July 2 (ANI): Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh has reviewed the implementation of the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) as well as the recommendations of the two committees headed by Nandan Nilekani and Sam Pitroda here.

At the second meeting of the Prime Minister's Committee on NeGP held here last evening, Dr Singh also reviewed the status of implementation of Mission Mode Projects (MMPs).

The Committee noted that out of the 31 MMPs, 14 MMPs are delivering the full range of services while nine have started delivering some services to the citizens.

The NeGP was approved by Government of India in May 2006 with the vision to "make all Government services accessible to the common man in his locality, through common service delivery outlets and ensure efficiency, transparency and reliability of such services at affordable costs".

As per the decision of the last meeting of the Committee, two Expert Groups, viz., an Expert Committee for preparation of an HR policy for e-Governance headed by Nandan Nilekani and an Expert Group on NeGP chaired by Dr Sam Pitroda were constituted.

The recommendations of both the committees will be of immense benefit for fast tracking the implementation of all e-Governance initiatives in the country. (ANI)
