India initiates policy formations of mobile governance
Intellecap writes, "The Department of Information Technology (DIT) in India has formed a new policy framework on mobile governance. The goal is to create a set of guidelines for using mobile devices to expand access and reach of public services to all Indian residents. There are about 80 million Internet users in India and 771 million mobile phone subscribers. The Mobile Service Delivery Gateway will be fully integrated into the National e-Governance Plan."
Intellecap writes, "The draft policy illustrates how the growing mobile phone subscriber base can be a catalyst for using modern information and communication technologies to improve governance and inclusive development."
