Web Guidelines


Government and citizens can join forces to effectively use the power of social media to engage with each other in real time, thus making governance more participative and policy-making a truly citizen-centric exercise. The overall benefits of such engagement will be:

  • Lesser cost of set up vs. conventional outreach through print & traditional electronic media
  • Enhanced sense of participation in governance among citizens
  • Faster turnaround in taking corrective measures based on real time & uninhibited feedback from citizens & other stakeholders

For more information on guidelines and tips for websites please refer to Guidelines for Indian Government Websites.
