e-governance may not be used in its full capacity in the near future, but the suggestion of e-governance itself leads to one question, what would be the medium of communication?

It is a accepted fact that only 5% of India’s total population know to read and write English. According to a survey conducted by Mr. Sapru of Frost and Sullivan, the Government must take necessary steps to convert all their initiatives in development of Information Technology sector to local languages. It is only by converting their medium of instruction and communication to the local language can e-governance can achieve marginal success.
