Maharashtra is the first state to release a dedicated e-Governance policy. The e-Governance Policy was drafted by a 10 member e-Governance Committee under the chairmanship of Padmashri Dr. Vijay .P. Bhatkar and approved by the Cabinet.
The objective of the e-Governance Policy is to ensure standardized and seamless implementation of e-governance projects across Maharashtra, thereby encouraging interoperability, data collaboration, sharing and linkage with UID.
The policy lays the groundwork for the development of an integrated environment for delivering various Government to Citizen (G2C), Government to Business (G2B), Government to Government (G2G) and Government to Employees (G2E) Services in a seamless and cost-effective manner. The policy is in an advanced stage of implementation currently.
e-Governance Policy was published on 23 September 2011 in both Marathi and English
