What is MyGov?
MyGov is an innovative platform to build a partnership between Citizens and Government with the help of technology for growth and development of India. Through this platform, the Government aims to encourage Citizen Participation towards Good Governance by seeking their ideas, suggestions and grass roots level contribution. Citizens can participate in this unique initiative of nation building and for the very first time in the history of this country, citizens from across India will come together to share their expert thoughts, ideas and suggestions with the Government in areas related to various policies, programs, schemes etc. MyGov will empower citizens to work hand in hand with the Government.
Ways to participate…
The platform consists of various focus Groups where citizens can undertake tasks (both online and on ground) as well as share their insights through various discussions related to the particular Group.
- Discussion – Citizens can join Discussions within Groups to share or express their views, ideas, and thoughts with the help of pictures, videos, documents, etc. on policies as well as on matters of national interest and collaborate on key areas of development and governance. Some of the best ideas and suggestions will straight away reach the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India.
- Do (Tasks) – Citizens can volunteer for a task within a Group in the ‘Do’ section as per their skills and interest areas. As of now there is a limit of 4 groups that a citizen can join. This is to ensure there is meaningful & effective contribution from every citizen in the areas of interest that they have indicated while registering.
Successful completion of a task will enable citizens to earn credit points and a chance to share their ideas with the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India.
