eGovernments Foundation has been awarded the Order of Merit at Business World’s Smart Cities Conclave 2016 in the Innovative Smart Solutions category for its digital Andhra Pradesh implementation across more than 100 cities.

 

The foundation’s flagship product called eGov smart platform includes: more than 20 modules with 100 workflows for municipal bodies; innovative mobile apps for digital delivery of citizen services; dashboards to monitor and track performance.

 

“This award is recognition of the passion with which we have worked over last 13 years to build smart solutions that enable governments to leverage technology for better service delivery and enhanced productivity,” said Viraj Tyagi, CEO, eGovernments Foundation.

 

“We are the market leader in e-municipality space with an open source product offering which is free. The results that Andhra has achieved in a short period of time are testimony to the transformative power of our solution.”

 

The Andhra Pradesh implementation has enabled 110 cities to go digital with the ability to manage day-to-day operations of the civic bodies. All citizen services can be accessed, tracked and resolved within specific timeframes through the Puraseva mobile app that connects citizens to civic employees directly. State of art dashboards have enabled data driven performance tracking of each ULB across key metrics.

 

eGovernments Foundation claims in addition to efficiency and productivity gains, city administrators have already reported increased revenue collections across property tax, water charges, trade license and advertisement tax.

 

Established in 2003 by Nandan Nilekani (ex-CEO of Infosys) and Srikanth Nadhamuni, CEO, Khosla Labs, eGovernments Foundation aims to develop cutting edge open source solutions in civic tech space. It powers some 325 cities across India enabling 35,000 cashless transactions a day.
