MUMBAI, SEPTEMBER 18: IT giant IBM has joined hands with National Informatics Centre to power the country’s official portal and provide a ‘single-point entry’ to government information and services.

The portal – india.gov.in – based on open standard and service-oriented architecture from IBM,

will provide a ‘single sign-on’ facility for government services and information on India besides offering access to over 5,000 websites,

NIC Director General Vijayaditya and IBM Vice President and Country Executive (Software Group and Developer relations) R Dhamodaran said.

The portal can also be used for other e-governance projects as well, they said.

The portal aims at enhancing features like search, localisation and personalisation of the content to suit the diverse requirements of the users.

The NIC and IBM will also work toward ensuring universal accessability of the portal for physically challenged and those using handheld devices, they added.
