The National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) was approved by the Government in May 2006, with the following vision:
“Make all Government Services accessible to the common man in his locality, through common service delivery outlets and ensure efficiency, transparency and reliability of such services at affordable costs to realise the basic needs of the common man”.
As part of NeGP approval, the Union Cabinet assigned some key tasks associated with Programme Management of NeGP to Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY) including arrangements for monitoring and coordinating implementation of NeGP, evolving standards and policy guidelines, providing technical and handholding support, undertaking Capacity Building, R&D, etc.
The Capacity Building Scheme under the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) also envisions establishment of an institutional framework for state-level decision-making including setting-up of State e-Mission Teams (SeMTs) having relevant expertise and experience to provide technical and professional support to States and Union Territories.
Since implementation of NeGP entailed enhanced responsibilities for MeitY, it was proposed that a suitable institutional mechanism be devised to enable Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology to engage competent resources from the open market as well as within the Government.
NeGD was accordingly created by MeitY in 2009 as an Independent Business Division (IBD) within Media Lab Asia (MLAsia) (a Section 8 Company under Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology).
NeGD is headed by a President & CEO. NeGD enjoys administrative, financial and HR autonomy in its role of Program Implementation of NeGP and Capacity Building. A Committee of the Board with the nomenclature of “NeGD Committee” has been appointed to supervise, guide and control NeGD. This committee is headed by the Secretary, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology.
