The Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY) on Friday signalled a complete revamp of National Informatics Centre (NIC) to make it ‘future-ready’ with new mechanisms for a better operating model, revenue streams, and human capital management at all levels.
The 46-year-old agency is a technology partner of the government and has developed multiple digital governance platforms including MyGov, PM-Kisan, National Power Portal, and e-Shram. It also caters to government agencies by providing infrastructure services, research, and solutions focused on emerging technologies for the effective delivery of Digital Government services.
Major changes may include new Public Private Partnerships (PPP) for outsourcing certain operations and augmenting the hosting infrastructure. The ministry also wants the agency to shift to the operating expenditure (OpEx)
