India is an expansive nation comprising primarily, of rural and sub-urban landscapes. Besides, denoting the essence of India, the population inhabiting the rural establishments in our country comprises the bull’s eye in our society.

638,386 villages are there in India citing the Census Data from early 2001, inhabited by above 70 per cent of the residents as a whole. Hence, the advancement cum improvement of the population of India remains major areas of concern while drafting and implementing any government policy. This is not an easy feat as a plethora of challenges awaits anyone who attempts this. One of the solutions proposed for the amendment of this scenario is effective E-governance and its public-private partnership (Kapoor R. and Kelkar N., 2013). Hence, there it is crucial that we create an analytical framework to logically assess and compare urban ICT policies which may assist in improving the level of literacy in these areas.

E-governance impacts three major areas – it optimizes government processes, build a network for citizens, and enables external interactions through E-services; but, owing to numerous reasons, citizens, specifically those in the village areas lack awareness about such services. Because of such reason, these services suffer from pitiable execution, maintenance, and control, which bring to the prime objective of this study. This study aims to not only acknowledge the incrementing behest for advisory and technical services in emergent countries in terms of their respective economies towards E-Government, but also, emphasize the implication of E-Government applications. This study aims at reviewing the issues and benefits related to application of E-Governance in rural areas.
