PM Narendra Modi launches portal, MyGov, for citizens to contribute in governance

NEW DELHI: Prime minister Narendra Modi launched a new online platform — mygov. nic.in — to crowdsource governance ideas from citizens, especially the youth, and enable them to volunteer for specific tasks and projects at the grassroots level, to mark the completion of his first two months in office on Saturday.

The most active contributors on the portal stand a chance to meet the prime minister in person, based on a system of credit points earned by users who complete tasks they volunteer for.


"Some of the best ideas and suggestions will straightaway reach the prime minister," the portal promised. Stressing that the success of democracy is impossible without participation of the people, the PM launched the initiative which he said would empower citizens to contribute towards "surajya" or good governance.


"In the past, there used to be a big gap between the people and the processes of governance... in the past sixty days, the experience of our government is that there are many people who want to contribute towards nation-building, and devote their time and energy," the PM said, adding that the new website provides an opportunity for them to showcase their contributions.


Citizens can register on the snazzily designed new government portal and discuss key challenges facing the country as well as volunteer to work on specific projects that are selected from the ideas that come up on the platform.


The platform has been split it into two halves - Discuss and Do - to enable more focused crowdsourcing and collaboration. Besides allowing users to 'creatively' engage specific government departments, the platform has opened up discussions in six specific areas to begin with — job creation, cleaning the Ganga, boosting girl child education, cleaning India, skill India and digital India. RS Sharma, IT secretary, said citizens can upload documents, case studies, videos and work plans on the platform.


"They can volunteer for various tasks, which would then be reviewed by other members and experts," he said. Once the tasks are approved by experts, they can be shared with other members and worked on. The government is also working on a mobile phone application for mygov.nic.in. "While on the move, citizens will have the flexibility to take pictures from mobile and upload on the forum, report in-context problems and issues," Sharma said.
