World Bank approves $ 150 mn loan for India’s e-Governance plan | e-Gonerns Plan- India | Loan for Indian e-Governs Plan Current Affairs

The World Bank has approved $ 150 million in loan for India to accelerate implementation of its National e—Governance Plan (NeGP), which is aimed at transforming the service delivery system across the country.

The Approved loan, from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), has a 5-year grace period, and a maturity of 18 years.

While this World Bank loan will not target specific services per se, it will initiate policy and institutional actions that will impact all the services.

The loan will support NeGP – approved in May 2006 as a national programme – to operate on a single common IT infrastructure, thus allowing faster and easier sharing of information between departments, saving infrastructure costs and lowering cost of service delivery for citizens as well as government agencies, the Bank said in a statement.

Citizens will no longer have to go to multiple departments, but will have the option of accessing e-services either through the internet on the government’s common website, or through a ‘single window’ Common Service Centres (CSC), set up to assist villages or remote areas, it said.

“The Government of India’s aim of providing web-enabled anytime, anywhere access to information and e-services can have significant social and economic benefits. Reducing the financial and opportunity costs of obtaining specific services through enabling policy measures can go a long way in transforming service delivery in the country,” said Roberto Zagha, World Bank Country Director in India.

However, the mobile tele-density now stands at over 60 percent and is expected to increase. In the near future, this is likely to facilitate delivery of mobile-based government services at a low cost to citizens.
