  • Make all government data available in real time over the internet
  • Establish metrics at all levels of government – state, corporation, ward, panchayat – and track performance
  • Make citizens aware of their rights and responsibilities to actively participate in governance by accessing the information and keeping abreast of progress
  • Help citizens interact closely and provide feedback to their elected representatives
  • Create a “Mirror World

To be continued.
