NEW DELHI: A new portal, MyGov.in, a platform for the people, especially the youth, to connect with the government actively, has been launched by the central government.

Department of Electronics and Information Technology secretary RS Sharma said that the portal, managed by the National Informatics Centre, empowers people to contribute towards good governance through various tasks and discussions. 



Citizens can upload documents, case studies, pictures, videos, other work plans etc. on the platform. They can volunteer for various tasks and submit their entries. These tasks would then be reviewed by other members and experts. Once approved, these tasks can be shared by other members on MyGov. Every approved task would earn credit points for completing the task. Thus, MyGov presents an opportunity to the citizens to participate in multiple theme-based discussions and to share their thoughts and ideas with a wide range of people.  



The platform has been divided into various groups namely Clean Ganga, Girl Child Education, Clean India, Skilled India, Digital India, Job Creation etc. Each group consists of online and on-ground tasks that can be taken up the contributors. The objective of each group is to bring about a qualitative change in that sphere through people’s participation. 



Sharma said the platforms ‘Discuss’ and ‘Do’ will take feedback from the community and improve on a continuous basis. He said his department has plan to have a mobile app for mygov.in, for people to contribute while on the move and enable them to send theme-related pictures, report in-context problems and issues etc.

The platform may even be extended to act like public audit platform for government projects. For example, citizens giving feedback on status of completed infrastructure projects, on availability of various social sector programmes etc.
