National eGovernance Plan (NeGP)

The National eGovernance Plan (NeGP) is an initiative by the government of India to connect eGovernance systems throughout the country and create a nation-wide network for electronic delivery of government services.

NeGP comprises 27 mission mode projects (MMP), which are further classified as state, central or integrated projects. Within NeGP, "mission mode" implies that projects have clearly defined objectives, scopes, and implementation timelines and milestones, as well as measurable outcomes and service levels.

Central MMPs include Immigration, Visa and Foreigners Registration & Tracking, Income Tax, Banking and National Citizen Database. State MMPs include Road Transport, Employment Exchange and Land Records. Integrated MMPs include National e-governance Service Delivery Gateway (NSDG), eProcurement and EDI for eTrade. Each state government can also define five MMPs specific to its individual needs.

The NeGP infrastructure is reliant upon the development of State Wide Area Networks(SWAN) to be connected to form a nation-wide network, State Data Centres (SDC) to consolidate services, applications and infrastructure, and common service centers (CSC) for end user access.

The goals of the eGovernance plan are to increase the efficiency of service delivery, empower citizens by providing information, and create an environment of transparency. The eGovernance plan aims to make the government more accessible to citizens and businesses alike and foster a more open atmosphere. 

The Indian government approved NeGP in May 2006 as recommendations of the Second Administrative Reforms Commission. NeGP is administered through the Department of Information Technology of the Indian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology.
