Modi government’s e-Sampark initiative, launched as part of Digital India campaign, will now cover private citizens, especially professionals, to inform them about various policies and programmes of the government.

Modi believes that in this digital age, the government has the opportunity to transform lives of people in ways that was hard to imagine just a couple of decades ago. The prime minister aims to transform governance by making it more transparent, accountable, accessible and participative.
