Abstract

Use of ICT in rural governance is an emerging phenomenon in India.  In the present paper, citing various grass root realities and incidents, the author establishes a correlation between the existing gender gaps and gender discriminations in the rural society and consequent marginalization of rural women from emerging rural e-governance. In this context the author also examines the existing rural e-governance agenda of the state government and concludes that currently the gender issues are not given adequate attention and representation in it. The findings are based on a study of a rural e-governance scheme of one of the most socially and economically challenged states of India: Chhattisgarh.
