For the past few years, e-governance has proven to be an effective tool in disseminating public services and amplifying the reach of government schemes. The digitalisation of processes and public services is also in tandem with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for ensuring ‘minimum government, maximum governance.’ But, India’s vast geography, logistics, and demographics, among others, raises questions about whether the country is fully tapping into e-governance potential. YourStory’s ‘Future of Governance’ event aims to bring industry leaders, government delegates and other stakeholders together to deliberate various issues that surround the future and impact of e-governance. The event will be organised virtually on March 3, 2022.
As one of India’s biggest conferences on e-governance and innovation, the ‘Future of Governance’ conclave will feature interactive discussions on the challenges and opportunities in this space. The digital event will put the spotlight on the success stories wherein technology-enabled governance initiatives are driving growth and accelerating social impact.
