This project is one of Mission Mode Projects (MMPs), initiated by Government of India (GoI) under National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) and an integral concept under the Digital India initiative now.

Initially, a set of 21 high volume services have been identified to be delivered under this project. The project is being made scalable to include additional services going forward. e-District in Tripura is envisaged to define a paradigm shift in G2C service delivery process impacting lives of common man.
