Currently the ratio of the internet users have rapidly increased from 300 to 500 million people. Already 50 per cent of India’s Internet users are mobile only. No country has built their Internet on that computing platform, in those numbers, at such a pace. In a time of such rapid, exhilarating change, no one person can claim to know the best tools the government can offer it’s citizens.
Hence it will be interesting to see what kind of ideas this contest provokes. You can register for the contest from India's MyGov Site and the last date of the registration and voting is 12 March.
