COVID-19 puts India’s e-governance infrastructure and innovation to the test

Sammendrag

India’s e-governance and digitalization drive harnesses ‘smart’ technology in an effort to generate new economic opportunities, boost economic growth, govern more efficiently with less corruption, and distribute relief and benefits to the poor and disadvantaged more effectively. In April 2015, India’s National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a National e-Governance plan known as e-Kranti, an upgrade or ‘2.0’ of the Digital India initiative rebranded as ‘transforming e-governance for transforming governance’. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a monumental challenge to India’s emergent e-governance and digital welfare infrastructure, while also putting the Modi government’s capacity for technological innovation to the test. As the world’s largest democracy continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is good reason to pay attention to the implications of this response for India’s e-governance design and development.
