  • Dr. Sanjay Annasaheb Gaikwad et al.


Digital India is a drive launched by the Government of India to ensure the Government's services are
made available to common citizens electronically. e-Kranti is an important pillar of the Digital India
initiative. Its aim is electronic delivery of services like education, agriculture, health, justice or
financial inclusion. Considering the significant need of e-Governance, m-Governance and Good
Governance in the country, the approach and key components of e-Kranti has been approved by the
Union Cabinet on March 2015 with the vision of “Transforming e-Governance for Transforming
Governance”. All new and on-going e-Governance projects as well as the existing projects, which are
being revamped, follow the key principles of e-Kranti. We are also discussing some of the key
challenges, benefits for implementing e-Kranti in India.
