Govt Launches MyGov, A Crowdsourcing Platform For Good Governance

11

MyGov

Government has launched a new idea-platform for Indians – myGov.nic.in,  a place where Indian citizens can share ideas and act upon them. In a first of it’s kind web portal, this technology driven platform has been created with the aim of helping citizens contribute and get intimately involved in good governance.

The website: MyGov.nic.in which was was launched last week also marked completion of 60 days by the new government.

The web portal has been created by National Informatics Centre (NIC), Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) who will also maintain the website and it’s entries.

For a change, the new MyGov platform has a modern look and feel, which you do not generally associate with Government websites.

What Can You Do MyGov?

Often at the grassroots levels of governance, there exists a huge gap between conceptualization of a good, noble idea and execution of the same. In most cases, any new suggestion to improve the lives of citizens from a area gets stuck in the red tape, and the project gets delayed.

But not anymore!

Using this website, any Indian national can submit creative, useful and beneficial ideas related to governance which would be discussed on the forums available in the website. Constructive feedback and expertise from various professionals can be accumulated and the idea gets developed and matured.

Action – Right Now!

Besides just sharing thoughts and ideas, you can now act upon them as well. You can volunteer to finish or execute the task on a small scale, and then submit your entry. The good work done by you will be reviewed by government officials, and other experts of that particular domain. Every approved task will earn you credit points as well.

Kickstarting Citizen Enabled Governance

Right now, several programs which need immediate attention from the government has been listed in the website, divided by several groups. Some of them are: Clean Ganga, Girl Child Education, Clean India, Skilled India, Digital India, Job Creation. Active citizens can take up particular tasks within these groups, share their ideas and thoughts regarding better implementation of those ideas. Additionally, they can take up some specific tasks as well, and submit their entries.

MyGov Discussions

The government plans to create a repository of ideas within this web portal, which can be used as a case study for citizen enabled micro-governance, thereby bringing a wide-scale change and progress within our society.

But.. Technological Challenges Exist

At the time of writing, the website was not opening as this message was displayed:

This error actually created mixed emotions for those who were trying to access the website: On one hand it was disheartening to know that the Indian Government, which commands the ultimate technological resources and infrastructure available within our country can’t manage few thousand clicks in a day; and on the other hand it was encouraging to see so many Indians participating in a unique initiative, which is bound to create ripples across the Indian society, if implemented with honest intensions.

We congratulate Indian government for this citizen enable idea-powerhouse, but also suggest that a dedicated team of technologists and web specialists be made accountable so that this great idea actually flourishes.

    As more n more people are frustrated with the limited availability of all govt. services n resources, n people need to queue fr hours to avail any govt. basic services-like train tkts-gas lines, electricty bill, water bill, municipality bill, income tax, sales tax, where do we dont see hourly queues-and young generations are easily frustrated about all dheela govt, babu type services…. It is a sure shot easy n direct complaint box for all. But lazy-sure shot salary-no tension I.A.S officers are bound to create a limited entry for public -type of website, so that less complaints will come in-n they need to do less work- also public memory is very short- on repeated non entry into website–public will slowly but surely start to avoid the website n again IAS officers need to work less n rest more in AC rooms…!!!

    My first suggestion would be to move all govt computation to open source and Linux. Their tender sites are so dependent on. Net that they don’t even render on Linux or osx browsers
