©2003 - IIM, Ahmedabad

The Centre for Electronic Governance (CEG) was set up at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIMA) in October 1999. The Centre was established by IIMA for an initial period of three years (Phase I) with the support of four leading IT companies – Oracle India Pvt. Ltd, HP (formerly Compaq) India Pvt. Ltd, SCO India and CMC Ltd.

During Phase I, the objectives of the Centre comprised identifying applications for developing 'Proof-of-Concept' prototypes, and disseminating knowledge and skills for successful implementation of e-Governance amongst the bureaucracy and other stakeholders. After the success achieved in Phase I, the Centre decided to continue its research activities for three more years (Phase II, up to October 2005) with its own resources.

In Phase II, CEG primarily focused on knowledge dissemination activities and developing its portal as a knowledge resource on e-Governance in India. In addition to the past activities rooted in the Centre’s main objectives, research on frameworks for evaluating e-Governance readiness, project proposals, and other related activities were undertaken.

The Centre is currently helping the Department of Information Technology (DIT), Government of India, which is the nodal coordinating agency for the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP), to design and implement the next phase of NeGP's three-phase assessment program. The Centre has recently completed a detailed impact assessment study of three state-level e-government projects in twelve states across India, and three national-level projects implemented by central government departments and agencies that was carried out under the first phase of the assessment program of the NeGP.
