Web Guidelines

Guidelines Responsive Web Design (RWD) is a web design approach that enables easy reading and navigation. RWD helps minimize panning, resizing, and scrolling-across a wide range of devices from mobile phones to desktop computer screens. The approach is a melting pot of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As visitors switch from their laptops to iPads, the website automatically switches to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities.

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