India Govt launches Transforming India portal

Lok Sabha India
With the aim of sharing the impact of various governance initiatives with citizens in real-time, the government has launched a website — ‘Transforming India’ — an official statement said here on Saturday.

The website was launched by Union Minister of Electronics and Information Technology and Law and Justice, Ravi Shankar Prasad.

“This site is an effort by MyGov to comprehensively record each and every aspect of this transformation,” he said.

The website,, will provide information in a user-friendly format enabling citizens to view the content in the form of infographics, e-books, performance dashboard, videos, daily news corner, and engage with the content by comments and sharing the content through social media.

“The key facets of the website are that it promotes accountability in major national initiatives, acts as a repository of major policies and decisions and provides a central platform to citizens for sharing of transformational changes that they see around themselves. The website thus bridges the gap between citizens and government and provides a seamless interface for two way information interchange,” the statement said.

This community based platform facilitates two-way communication between the government and citizens.

There is a section in the site especially for citizen voices. Citizens can share stories about transformative growth in India that they see around themselves. This can be in the format of videos, photos and comments. IANS
