What Is Digital Governance?

05 Jan 2023

Digital governance is an upcoming trend in Indian constitutional assemblies. Digital governance is a clear cut procedure wherein accountability is established for digital strategy, implementation, and policy formulation. Certain standards or protocols are clearly stated in the strategy plan itself. When a government digital service methodology is properly implemented, it helps streamline digital development and takes out confusion and chaos in the day to day administration of the government where people are primarily involved. The ownership thus revolves around a single or a unified source of authority. Websites, social media, the internet, what 's app group and company 's word press sites are managed and controlled by the digital service authority.Modi 's government is now taking the entire nation towards an era of digital transformation. Day to day managing of affairs digitally is also known as e-governance.An overview of how a Government digital service scheme can actually be designed and formulated: Define the scope You will clearly have to identify the scope and opportunities of development in areas covering the entire population. It can be heavy congestion of traffic at metro cities, massive cutting of trees in forest areas and urbanized localities, breeding of unhygienic street or stray dogs responsible for spreading germs, viruses or diseases, unclean drinking water in most areas of the country and lot many. The areas of development thus have to be identified. The programmers cluster the scope for improvement and club all the issues into one digital governance program. The scope in the form of Digital India initiative has to be clearly formulated. Policy needs to be structured Now that, you are done with defining the scope of improvement for Urban as well as Rural India, the next step in digital governance program is to formulate a policy in a structured manner. Having defined the scope of improvement in areas or issues that are grappling the entire nation, a clear cut policy has to be framed on how the issues can be addressed. What remedial steps the Government or the people of the nation have to take to tackle these problems. Steps for improvement, the formation of voluntary or NGO groups, etc. can be mentioned in the Policy document itself. Executive Support The digital governance policy has been framed duly. The third step is to appoint executives or volunteers who can take care of each and every domain. Although it is theoretically okay to say that all policies or issues facing the state or country can be brought under a digital governance policy, practically things cannot be moved out with a one-man show. One group looks after providing cleaner water to rural areas and urbanized localities. There can be one group to see to it that trees are not mindlessly chopped out in cities, towns or villages. For every tree that is cut, new saplings have to be planted. Voluntary groups can be formed to provide affordable health-care facilities to the poor. Lower strata of the society can be provided with better educational facilities. New Schools and colleges can be set up with State and Central government 's funding to help people across the nation pursue their studies in a hassle-free manner. In short, an executive support system will have to be put in place to carry out the developmental activities in a neat and streamlined manner. Group structure Two or three departments can be clubbed under a single source of authority. Say, for example, drinking water and sanitation facilities can be managed and controlled by one single source of authority. Afforestation activities and conservation of endangered species can be handled by another team and so on. Similar activities can, therefore, be clubbed together and you can appoint one minister or a deputy commissioner to oversee the activities that are being performed by each and every group, working together in action. Digital standards Now that groups are assigned, policy document is structured, scope of development has been identified and authority members have been elected to look after the operations, the last step in the digital governance policy is to apply digital standards or definite protocols to see to it, that the laws or policies are not broken out and digital governance policy is properly implemented. With the latest e-governance operating in full swing, you can confidently conclude that country will progress on a better note. Cities and towns can develop faster. The digital transformation era is definitely a golden era. This design or outlay can also be adopted by Private, Public sector undertakings and corporate entities to enhance productivity levels and to uplift the economy in a better manner.
