The award called CSI/Nihilent e-governance is given every year in two categories -- project and state.
While individual projects are selected for awards on various criteria, the states that make significant progress in the e-governance area are awarded best e-governed state award.
The final selection would be made by a jury on November 4 in New Delhi at the department of management studies at IIT. They will make a presentation before the jury.
Jharkhand is the first state in the country to have completed its statewide area network, called Jharnet.
