People's participation will contribute towards good governance
Prime Minister Narendra Modi who believes in minimum Government and maximum governance, has always asserted the importance of people's participation in his Lok Sabha campaign rallies.
"The platform would bridge gap gulf between people and Government. Democracy cannot succeed without people's participation in Government and this participation should not be limited only during elections," the Prime Minister said.
Many people may assume that MyGov(mygov.nic.in) is a grievance redressal platform where people can present their problems in front of the Government. But it is an initiative by the Modi Government to have more volunteers who really want to contribute towards the development process. The people can also use this medium to find amicable solutions to the problems apart from taking ownership and responsibility of the same.

"Citizens can also volunteer for various tasks and submit their entries. These tasks would be reviewed by other members and experts. Once approved, these tasks can be shared by those who complete the task and by other members on MyGov," Department of Electronics and Information Technology Secretary RS Sharma said.
Update of project completion
The technology driven MyGov can also be used to update about the completion of different Government projects. At present, there are six groups on the platform - Clean Ganga, Girl Child Education, Clean India, Skilled India, Digital India and Job Creation.
Digital knowledge library
The portal not only presents a discussion forum on dos and don'ts but it is a digital knowledge library. The Government will be presenting various issues of national importance which will also enhance the knowledge of the common man.
