In a bid to promote e-Governance policy of Maharashtra Government, all the departments have been asked to spend half per cent of their budgetary provision on computerisation and providing online services to citizens. The IT department has proposed mandatory electronic delivery act.

The idea is that the Government wants the citizens should receive the services faster and cheaper with the help of the e-Governance.

Learning from the past experience, the resolution has said that the departments should buy software along with hardware otherwise the machines lay unused. The IT department has also proposed a 'Maharashtra Mandatory Electronic Delivery of Public Service Act 2010' to encourage e-services.

With the proposal, if implemented, the people might soon do away with long queue and receive birth certificates, land documents and other important papers online as the government would provide various services via Internet.
