NEW DELHI: In a bid to get the people involved in governance matters, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched a website, mygov.nic.in, aims at helping citizens to give their views, ideas and opinions on the issues and programmes of the government.
The inauguration of the people-centric platform also marks the completion of 60 days of the Modi Government.
On the occasion, Modi said many people wanted to to contribute towards nation-building. “The success of democracy is impossible without participation of the people.
The only thing they require is an opportunity to shine and showcase their contribution,” Modi said.
Besides Modi, Communications and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, Cabinet Secretary Ajit Seth, Department of Electronics and Information Technology secretary R S Sharma were present. The National Informatics Centre (NIC) will implement and manage the platform.
How it Works
The platform presents an opportunity to the citizens to both ‘Discuss’ and ‘Do’ and there are multiple theme-based discussions on MyGov, here a wide range of people would share their thoughts and ideas.
Further, any idea shared by a contributor will also be discussed on the discussion forums, allowing constructive feedback and interaction.
For those who wish to go beyond discussions and wish to contribute on the ground, MyGov offers several avenues to do so.
Citizens 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 those who complete the task by other members on MyGov. Every approved task would earn credit points for completing the task.
The platform has been divided into various groups such as Clean Ganga, Girl Child Education, Clean India, Skilled India, Digital India and Job Creation.
