Making the information available to the citizens, is one of the main goals of eGovernance initiatives. It will help to bring more transparency to the system and efficiency to the service delivery system. Achieving these goals will meet the Governance and Development agenda of the Government of Jammu & Kashmir.
In order to provide efficient and effective citizen services, it is necessary that all the department initiative are scalable and interoperable however it is observed that several of e-governance initiative taken at various departments do not comply to eGovernance standards and running discretely for MIS purpose. Many departments are having stand alone legacy applications which may not be reusable in order to achieve the integrated government structure. The Departmental applications must have integration at the back end so as to facilitate the Common Service Centers to address a wide range of services from a single window.
