Modi's Mygov
« on: August 01, 2014, 01:49:47 PM »
'Mygov' portal to help people participate in governance

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched Mygov, an interactive website that seeks to foster participatory governance but which also aims to keep lakhs of volunteers who enrolled for the Modi campaign engaged.

The site looks to engage ordinary people as well as experts through "discuss" platform while providing for more hands on engagement through a "do" window.

Modi said the initiative intends to keep voters connected with government during the period between elections. Often a big gap opens up when a government assumes office and people's participation ends with voting. This will encourage citizens to contribute to governance.
The platform is, however, not intended to be a grievance redressal mechanism, but an initiative that the government hopes will encourage purposeful engagement.

The initiative also seems intended to provide a contrast to UPA's dependence on panels like national advisory council and activists/academics. Though Congress leader Rahul Gandhi did try to make manifesto writing inclusive, the effort came late in the day for the party.

The success of digital volunteerism through BJP campaign platforms like mission 272 has provided the inspiration for Mygov.nic.in that will encourage people to give their feedback and ideas on the government.

BJP's missed call initiative, conceived by Modi's backroom, has elicited more than 1 crore responses, creating a large base of volunteers whose mobile numbers provided a significant data base.

Since BJP's big win in the Lok Sabha election, party leaders have been trying to figure out how best to keep a large number of non-political people who signed up for Modi engaged with the party.
Mygov serves the Modi government's political and governance objectives as it provides a dynamic feedback on official schemes and pulls in volunteers who could feel utilised and useful.

Keeping digital volunteering at the heart of its strategy, Mygov looks to replicate the Modi campaign's success in bringing in people who did not have a political background to work online and on the ground.

Interactive elements like tracking time spent volunteering and "credits" earned will help make the process interesting and beat the ennui that usually seeps in once the novelty wears off, government managers feel.

Modi's message of "great governance through your partnership" welcomes visitors to the site while the "do" option leads to a sign up form where mobile numbers and email ids are mandatory fields.

An official statement said, "The platform presents an opportunity to the citizens to both 'Discuss' and 'Do.' There are multiple theme-based discussions on MyGov where a wide range of people would share their thoughts and ideas."

The PMO statement promises that "Further, any idea shared by a contributor will also be discussed on these discussion forums, allowing constructive feedback and interaction".

"Citizens can volunteer for various tasks and submit their entries. These tasks would then be reviewed by other members and experts. Approved task would earn credit points for completing the task," says the statement.
