1.2 Scope & Objective

This document recommends policies and guidelines for Indian Government websites and Portals, at any organisational level and belonging to both Central Government as well as State/UT Governments (including District Administrations to Village Panchayats) for making Indian Government websites citizen centric and visitor friendly. Compliance to these guidelines will ensure a high degree of consistency and uniformity in the content coverage and presentation and further promote excellence in Indian Government Web space.

These guidelines address common policy issues and practical challenges that Government Departments face during development and management of their websites. The guidelines aim to assist the Departments in ensuring that their website conform to a consistently high standard. This is expected to enhance the trust level of the citizens while accessing Government information and availing services online.
