East Champaran is a pioneer among Districts in Bihar in promotion of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and e-Governance by successfully implementing various e-Governance programmes including those under the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP).
Undoubtedly e-governance has emerged as a potent tool for any citizen centric, transparent and effective governance system. With key infrastructure and policies in place, GoB has aggressively promoted information sharing with the citizen by way of display and disclosure of information of large number of functional departments and their subordinate organizations through their respective websites. The district website https://eastchamparan.nic.in/ provides information to the citizens on various aspects of governance.
The District Administration of East Champaran has aligned itself to the NeGP vision of “Making all Government services accessible to the common man in his locality through common service delivery outlets and ensuring efficiency, transparency and reliability of such services at affordable costs to realize the basic needs of the common man”.
By year 2023, make the Government services accessible online from anywhere or nearby Common Service Delivery outlets, mobile platforms, handheld devices etc., thus enabling the citizen to avail of all Government services easily, thereby increasing the accountability, transparency and efficiency in delivery of services.
District e-Governance Society (DeGS)
District e-Governance Societies headed by the District Collectors have been formed for implementing the e-Governance initiatives at the District level. They would provide a platform for all the stakeholders to discuss and deliver services at the field level. The society would work closely with other implementing support agencies and monitor the e-Governance activities at the district level.
