“The E-Government Development Index (EGDI), which assesses e-government development at the national level, is a composite index based on the weighted average of three normalized indices. One-third is derived from a Telecommunications Infrastructure Index (TII) based on data provided by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), one-third from a Human Capital Index (HCI) based on data provided by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), and one-third from the Online Service Index (OSI) based on data collected from an independent survey questionnaire, conducted by UNDESA, which assesses the national online presence of all 193 United Nations Member States,” the report explained the methodology of arriving at the index.
India is among top 15 in the e-participation sub-index with a score of 0.9551. It has performed poorly in the Telecommunication Infrastructure Index, with a score of 0.20091. On Human Capital Index, India has scored below the world average. It has secured a score of 0.6627. India’s overall score is 0.5484.
