Richa Dubey  | Dr. E. Ahmad
Abstract: EGovernance is a link between government and citizen. It is the use of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) by the government to improve efficiency, services and productivity of Government services for the people. E-Governance in India had a modest start in the form of computerization of Government departments initially to come a long way to involve the overall functioning of the Government. Furthermore, the concept of e-Governance has spread it span to field of education, making this field more student and faculty friendly. It has become absolutely imperative to implement fast and reaction based e-Governance into education sector, so that Indian educational Institutions can match world class standards of efficient administration in the face of challenges caused by globalisation, international competition and science & technology development,. The implementation of e-Governance in the field of education will lead to empowerment of faculty and students, transparency and absolute clarity in administration, governing and admission process. For this purpose, UGC has issued a notification to all universities to establish 24 hours helpline regarding information and admission process to increase efficiency of faculties and of administration processes. In a broad sense, the better application of e-Governance in educational sector will provide better service delivery and the distribution of information to students and faculty members. E-Governance provides higher educational institutions like universities a way to exceed competition and provide the students and faculty members an opportunity to make full use of available resources. However, challenges in its implementation like resistance from faculty and students, budget constraints, proficiency in using internet and technology based programs and connectivity exist but they can be overcome with proper allocation of funds and training of involved personnel.
