The traditional approaches dominated in the 20th century failed to respond to the changing environment in rendering the services to the public. E Government bought the revolution in India where government of India has taken steps to deliver the services to the citizens through the means of Information communications and technology (ICT). E government is the transformation of public sector internal and external relationship through internet enabled operations. The contribution and the role of Information communications and technology is very high.
