" The National Informatics Centre (NIC), Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) would implement and manage a platform MyGov which would facilitate citizen engagement in good governance."
New Delhi, July 26 - Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday launched an interactive online platform that allows people to share ideas and suggestions and participate in the country's governance.

Democracy cannot succeed without people's participation in Government and this participation should not be limited only during elections. The participation should be there in fulfilling peoples' aspirations and needs, Modi said while inaugurating the platform.

The platform would bridge the gulf between people and government, he said.

The portal, MyGov, will serve as a medium for the people, especially the youth, to connect with the government and thus contribute to nation's development.

There are multiple theme-based discussions on MyGov where a wide range of people would share their thoughts and ideas. Further, any idea shared by a contributor will also be discussed on these discussion forums, allowing constructive feedback and interaction. Citizens can upload documents, case studies, pictures, videos, other work plans on the platform.

MyGov presents an opportunity to the citizens to both 'Discuss' and 'Do', the statement said.

The National Informatics Centre (NIC), Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) would implement and manage a platform MyGov which would facilitate citizen engagement in good governance.

Minister for Communication and IT, Law and Justice, Ravi Shankar Prasad and senior government officers were present at the launch of the platform.
