Digital India is an ambitious project of Narendra Modi Government. It is another form of e-governance project but with a different name and administrative order. In Congress Government’s times, the e-governance initiatives were governed by National E-Governance Plan (NeGP) and now these initiatives are governed by Digital India project.
Both NeGP and Digital India are not governed by any legal framework or laws. This is a very serious lacuna of NeGP and Digital India as issues like e-health, e-courts, e-prison, cyber security, etc cannot be effectively managed in the absence of effective laws.
Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO) has understood this limitation of Indian Government very well. We have launched many techno legal initiatives to help national and international stakeholders who are looking for legal enablement of ICT systems in India. As far as Digital India is concerned, we have launched a dedicated platform named Centre of Excellence for Digital India Laws and Regulations in India (CEDILRI).
CEDILRI has already discussed issues like need for Digital India laws in India and e-health laws in India. Further, CEDILRI has also discussed about the establishment of National E-Health Authority (NeHA) of India while providing its suggestions in this regard. Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO), CEDILRI and other techno legal segments of P4LO have also been managing useful newsletters and updates for national and international stakeholders. These include the dailies titled Digital India, Digital India Laws, Digital India Cyber Security, Smart Cities Cyber Security in India, Privacy Laws in India, etc. These dailies and newsletters are covering cutting edge and contemporary issues about Digital India and Civil Liberties.
Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO) hopes that national and international stakeholders would find our initiatives useful. At the same time we expect the Indian Government to consider the suggestions and opinions given by the CEDILRI from time to time so that Digital India and NeGP can grow in India.
