1. About MyGov

MyGov is the citizen engagement platform of the Government of India (GoI). Our mandate is to highlight the positive key/flagship schemes of the GoI and its many Ministries and Departments; and engage with our users ('Saathis') through various youth-centric online and offline engagements ('Activities'). We also partner with different Ministries in order to promote their various policies, collect public feedback and ensure citizen participation in various government programmes.

It is also a trusted platform for citizens, when it comes to important government news - for example, during these challenging times, MyGov is one of the first platforms to which, young and older netizens turn for the latest, authentic news about Covid.
