Abstract

The case discusses the Gyandoot, an e-government project started by the State Government of Madhya Pradesh (MP) (India) that won the prestigious Stockholm Challenge Award in 2000. Gyandoot is an intranet network of computers connecting the rural areas and fulfilling the everyday, information-related needs of the rural people. The case highlights the problems faced by the villagers before the implementation of the project. It also provides detailed information about the implementation of the project, the services offered and the benefits reaped after the implementation of the project. The case also briefs about the other e- government initiatives undertaken by the MP government. This case is structured to enable students to: (1) understand the need for e- government initiatives in India; (2) explore ways where IT can be helpful for the masses and work towards bridging the digital divide; (3) study the implementation process of such an initiative; (4) understand the various tangible and intangible benefits reaped by implementing an e-government initiative; and (5) identify the areas in which e-government initiatives can be helpful. The case is targeted at MBA/PGDBA students for a knowledge, information and communication systems management curriculum. The teaching note does not contain an analysis of the case.
