ABSTRACT:
e-Governance has become significant tool now-a-days. Open source software are easily available and do not require license. The use of FOSS (Free Open Source Software) is pervasive and inevitable in most government organizations. A proactive approach to FOSS management is critical for maximizing the benefits. Using FOSS with an understanding of governance fundamentals to move forward action plan can be created. Looking at the success story and considering how well FOSS has worked for the CHOiCE (CHhattisgarh Online Information for Citizen Empowerment) project so far, we are sure many other projects and initiatives will be inspired to leverage FOSS and enjoy many of its benefits. This paper deals with the use of Bharat Operating System Solutions (BOSS) as free open source software in e-Governance project in Chhattisgarh.
