Digital Maharashtra

To Lay the Foundation of Digital Maharashtra

  • eGovernance has been grossly misunderstood, intentionally manipulated and conveniently disregarded by both Institutions and administrators


  • Fundamental Q: Do we really need to Computerize? Should the Government be doing this activity at all (like Octroi)?
  • Do a Dispassionate analysis whether the specific department or office should exist at all? Does it exist in developed countries?


  • Fundamental Q: Are you enabling the Citizen or harassing him?
  • Do you ask them to get the zerox copy verified from a Gazetted Officer or a Notary? Does your Application Form have 100 pieces of information asked, when 10 would be sufficient?

    Is the payment process simple and convenient? Do you give a commitment regarding the Time Frame in which citizen’s work would be done?

    Can you intimate the citizen of status of his Application by a SMS, email or a phone call?Can you deliver the end result to the citizen in a painless way, at his home or near his home?


  • Land Title (7/12): Who asks for copies of Land Title? In 90% cases, it is the Government. And who gives the Land Title certificate? The Government itself.
  • We need a system BANNING a Government Department to ask for copy of a document from a citizen, if the department is the custodian of that document. This simplifies citizen’s life, and makes Transactions faster and eliminates frauds.
