National e-Governance Division: The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Government of India has formed the National e-Governance Division (NeGD) as an autonomous business division within Media Lab Asia, under the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, Government of India, for supporting and assisting MeitY in the Programme Management of NeGP. The task of supporting coordination of Digital India is also being handled by NeGD.

NeGD is also the Central Agency for implementation of Capacity Building Scheme which is aimed at providing technical and professional support to Centre/State/UTs Government at policy and decision making bodies and to develop specialized skills for e-Governance. It is intended to leverage technology to increase the speed and scale of training delivery.
In order to move towards a competency-based system which could ensure that each e-governance job role is performed by a person who has the required competencies for that job role, an e-Governance Competency Framework (e-GCF) has been developed. The framework strengthens capacity building for e-Governance/ Digital India by setting standards in people selection, deployment and trainings. The framework has the following key components
i. Defines 19 e-Gov job roles covering all aspects of e-Governance project lifecycle
ii.Identifies and defines a comprehensive set of competencies critical to implementation of e-Governance under Digital India
The Link for e-GCF e-book is given below for reference:
