Course Description

Local Self Governance and Government Programs B y Dinesh Jotwani
With steady growth in usage of online platforms under Digital India, mobile applications, and social media (Twitter) the m-governance has brought administration closer to every individual. The emergence of a new governance model through the usage of technology promotes quality administration and effective citizen services at the grass-root level. Also, the policies of the central and state governments have focused on ensuring quality administration for every individual. The Mobile platforms are actively utilized to connect to the individuals by laying down broad details of the schemes/policies/programs of the government and seeking active involvement in its preparation and implementation done at the local level.
