To ensure access, reach, scalability and flexibility of learning across pan India for Govt. officials. One of the key defining elements central to the success of any institution is to ensure an involvement of continual learning. To foster such a practice at an institutional level at NeGD and at the State Government departments, it is imperative to use technology in such a way that learning and knowledge exchange becomes a normal engagement without external interventions.
