It was one of the top 5 projects among hundreds that were sent for nominations. The other four countries whose projects were also listed in the top five in the same category were projects from Australia, China, Argentina and Tanzania.

One among these 5 projects would be chosen as the winner for which the prize distribution ceremony will be held on May 31 at Geneva, Switzerland. The proposal the state government sent was of the Planning Department. Under the project all government proposals and sanctions are automated.

Earlier the sanctions and approvals would take more than months to be processed, but now with the automation, the process doesn’t take more than couple of weeks, officials said.

Commissioner & Secretary of Planning Department, Dr. Vijay Kumar D, said that “We are thankful to all for voting Meghalaya’s Project into the top 5. We feel that the e-Proposal System will be a game changer in effective governance and would also inspire other states in the country to adopt similar initiatives”.

MeghEA is a flagship initiative of Government of Meghalaya, supported by National e-Gov Division (NeGD), a first of its kind in the country. KPMG is the consulting partner for MeghEA, while Humanitics, NIC and other are implementing agencies.
