Department of Information Technology (DIT) under the Ministry of Information Technology, Government of India is the Central department responsible for all administrative functions relating to formulation, execution and implementation of IT policies in India.

    DIT’s vision is to make India a Global Information Technology Super Power and a front-runner in the age of information revolution and to bring the benefits of electronics to every walk of life and to develop the Indian electronics industry as a global player. The thrust of the IT Department is to facilitate and catalyse adoption of e-Governance packages in the Central and State Governments, as the nodal agency for the implementation of the National e-Governance Action Plan, evolve and implement policy packages to propel growth of electronics and hardware manufacturing, increase PC penetration in the country, increase utilisation of internet in the country, growth of domestic software market, development of local languages in Information Technology, to encourage use of IT to increase productivity, to explore use of IT as a means of generating employment.



    The Government approved the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP), comprising of 27 Mission Mode Projects (MMPs) and 8 components, on May 18, 2006.

    The Government has accorded approval to the vision, approach, strategy, key components and implementation framework for the NeGP. However, the approval of the NeGP does not constitute a financial approval for all the MMPs and components under it. The existing/ongoing projects in the MMP category, being implemented by various Central Ministries/State departments/ States would be suitably augmented/enhanced to align them with the objectives of NeGP.

    NeGP vision is 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 cost to realise the basic needs of the common man.

    For the implementation of NeGP, Department of Information Technology (DIT), Government of India, has to create the Common and Support Infrastructure (National/State Wide Area Networks, National/State Data Centres, and Common Services Centres and Electronic Service Delivery Gateways) and make suitable arrangements for monitoring and coordinating the implementation of NeGP under the directions of the competent authorities in this regard. The DIT also has to evolve/lay down Standards and Policy Guidelines, provide Technical and Handholding Support, undertake Capacity Building, R&D, etc., as required, for successful implementation of various e-Governance Projects. DIT has been mandated to adequately strengthen itself and its various arms like National Informatics Centre, Standardisation, Testing and Quality Certification, Centre for Development of Advanced Computing, National Institute of Smart Government, etc., to play these roles effectively.
