e-Governance is the use of technology for better governance and administration. For Governments to function in an efficient and transparent manner and using available resources optimally, technology needs to be harnessed to play a very important role in governance. Relevant use of technology helps the government to channelize available resources for better productivity. It increases transparency and reduces overall costs. Governments all over the world have, therefore, been embracing technology in various aspects of governance - be it revenue collection, public distribution, skill enhancement or infrastructure development.
