National Awards for Exemplary Implementation of E-government Initiatives 2008-09: International Section Wanted

The Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances (DARPG), Government of India, New Delhi has invited nominations for National Awards For Exemplary Implementation of e-Governance Initiatives Year 2008-09. The last date for receipt of nominations is October 15, 2008. Check for details the brochure available at

I wonder whether it would be possible for DARPG, which has been playing a commendable role in organising this annual conference, to include an international
section for developing countries. This would encourage felllow developing countries
in learning from the experience in India and also enable Indian states, etc. to learn from their experience. also know that the proposal will entail extra work for already over-burdened DARPG, but I feel DARPG should not shirk from this responsibility in the interest of e-governance.
