Government and governance play a key role in building up and organise the nation, state, district and society as here governance manifests only democratic set up where; it is by the people and for the people. All the development policies are formulated on the government level whether it is local level government or central or state and its proper implementation in the public domain becomes a challenging task for the implementing agency due to the various constraints and loopholes in the system, and as there is where implementation fails, plans and policies fails. Policy makers and planners more cognizant and result oriented go through the implementation strategy also and plan so that implementation be successful. In the era of information technology, ICT provide such a tool to planner and policy makers so that they not only make implement their plan successfully but they can optimize their results by proper monitoring the system and can create a benchmark for future and perspective planning through research and development. An institutional set-up, organization or department public enterprises that ensures governance usually has the following features'. 1. Participation: All men and women should have a voice in decision-making, either directly or through legitimate intermediate institutions that represent their interests. Such broad participation is built on freedom of association and speech, as well ascapacities to participate constructively. 2. Rule of Law: Legal frameworks should be fair and enforced impartially, particularly laws on human rights. 3. Transparency: Transparency is built on the free flow of information. Processes, institutions and information are directly accessible to those concerned with them, and enough information is provided to understand and monitor them. 4. Responsiveness: Institutions and processes try to serve all stakeholders. 5. Consensus Orientation: Governance mediates differing interests to reach a broad consensus on what is in the best interests of the group and where possible, on policies and procedures. 6. Equity: All men and women have opportunities to improve or maintain their well-being.
