Standards & Policies

Standards for eGovernance

Standards in e-Governance are a high priority activity, which will help ensure sharing of information and seamless interoperability of data across e-Governance applications. DEIT is promoting the usage of Open Standards to avoid any technology lock-ins. An Institutional Mechanism has been setup under NeGP to evolve/adopt Standards for e-Governance
Some of the key priority areas of immediate concern that have been identified for standardization are:

  • Policy on Open Standards
  • Metadata & Data Standards
  • Localisation and Language Technology Standards
  • Information Security
  • Technology Standards on Interoperability
  • Biometrics
  • Digital Signatures
  • Enterprise Architecture
  • Quality & Documentation
