Information technology (IT) has brought about a major shift in the nature and speed of knowledge processing, thereby transforming the way business and, indeed, governments, function. An integral aspect of social capital, IT can either be an empowering force for the marginalized, or be instrumental in creating a new dimension of inequality. Harnessing IT for effective socio-economic transformation into an epistemic society has created a need to revisit prevailing notions of governance and development in the country, which is confronted with resource constraints and a yawning digital divide. Conceived against this background, this volume consists of 21 chapters written by authorities responsible for planning and implementing IT in India, including the President of India, H.E. Dr A P J Abdul Kalam, senior government officials, IT professionals and scholars. The volume contains case studies of the application of IT in India, both in agriculture and in improving public service delivery systems. Printed Pages: 316. Size: 5.5 x 8.5 Inches.

Inhaltsangabe: The issues surrounding e-governance in India are discussed in this volume.

Topics examined include: governance challenges and the pitfalls of ICT applications; citizen-centric governance; cyberlaws and their implementation; the role of ICT in combating corruption; technological and human readiness to make e-governance a reality; conceptualizing successful ICT projects for everyone; and ICT applications in agriculture and in harnessing social capital and ensuring financial returns.

Review: This book brings together thoughts on how policy initiatives, investments, R&D and incentives aim at opening `windows of opportunity to large segments of Indians who find themselves left out of the digital loop.... The book is essential reference not only for its entertaining style but also for the wealth of information it contains. (Business Line)

This edited volume surveys the impact of ICTs on engendering an effective socio-economics transformation of India into an epistemic society...the volume makes a compelling case for recognizing the use if ICT in assisting socioeconomic development by improving the accountability and transparency of government activity.
