NEW DELHI: In a major decision to promote Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s online platform for citizens to participate in governance, the Centre has decided to make MyGov the single repository of all infographics and ebooks published by the government.

The direction to all Central Ministries came from Cabinet Secretary PK Sinha, who in a letter dated March 29, 2016 told the Ministries and central departments to conduct all citizen engagement activities only through Mygov.

“MyGov should be developed as single repository of all infographics and eBooks published by the government. All citizen engagement activities pertaining to ministries and departments should be done only through Mygov.in,” the letter said.

The idea of MyGov is to bring the government closer to the common man, while creating an interface for an exchange of ideas and views involving common citizens and experts. The government says MyGov helps departments and Ministries in identifying talent and expertise.

For example, a post titled “Skill Development and 21st century India — How important is skill development in taking India forward in the 21st century?” received 21,098 submissions from citizens. Sinha said the MyGov platform had already conducted nearly 1,300 activities across a range of engagement methodologies such as discussion, tasks, polls, blogs. The letter said that MyGov now had registered 19 lakh citizens, who were not only participating in policy formulation and making recommendations but also in implementation through actionable tasks.
