Our Philosophy

We welcome anyone willing to take the journey of solving hard to crack urban governance challenges. Our philosophy is to build Open source , interoperable and scalable solutions where anyone can contribute to making urban governance more efficient.

eGovernments Foundation has been in the forefront of implementing eGovernance solutions since 2003. Our products have been serving over 325+ ULBs across the country. Our time tested products have impacted the ULBs in a large way. We have also been involved in several eGovernance initiatives in the country.

Our primary business motivator is to increase the footprint of eGovernance across the country and help adoption in as many ULBs as possible. Going opensource with our products is a measure in this direction. It also gives us the ability to tap into the immense talent pool in India for strengthening and improving our cities. Open source also blends well with our ethical fabric of being open and transparent in our business.

Further, the Government of India has recently announced a big push into open source as a part of its Digital Initiative. It came up with a policy

  • To provide a policy framework for rapid and effective adoption of OSS
  • To ensure strategic control in e-Governance applications and systems from a long-term perspective
  • To reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of projects

The complete policy draft is available here

eGov SmartCity eGovernance solution is in compliance with the requirements of the policy.
