National Informatics Centre (NIC) ICT for better governance

We live in the age of the Information Technology (IT) revolution. The universal acceptance of the power of IT to transform and accelerate the development process, especially in developing economies is indisputable. The rapid advance of Communication
technologies, especially the Internet, has enabled governments all over the world to reach out to their most remote constituencies to improve the lives of their most underprivileged citizens. NIC, under the Department of Information Technology of
the Government of India, is a premier Science and Technology organization, at the forefront of the active promotion and implementation of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) solutions in the government. NIC has spearheaded the e-Governance
drive in the country for the last three decades building a strong foundation for better and more transparent governance and assisting the governments endeavor to reach the unreached.

The mid-1970s, in India, were watershed years, heralding a revolutionary transformation in governance. In the year 1975, the Government of India envisioned that the strategic use of Information Technology (IT) in government would lead to more transparent
and efficacious governance which could give a fillip to all-round development. In 1976, in the wake of this recognition of the potency of IT, the Government visualized a project of enduring importance viz. the "National Informatics Centre (NIC)".
Subsequently, with the financial assistance of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) amounting to US $4.4 million, NIC was set up.

Projects developed and implemented by NIC and running successfully in different offices under the guidance of Paschim Medinipur District Centre.
