NIC, the premier ICT organisation of Govt of India

The National Informatics Centre (NIC) (Hindi: राष्ट्रीय सूचना विज्ञान केंद्र ) is the main science & technology organisation of India's Union Government in informatics services and information-and-communication- technology (ICT) applications. The NIC is a part of the Indian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology's Department of Information Technology. It has played a pivotal role in steering e-governance applications in the governmental departments at national, state and district levels, enabling the improvement in, and a wider transparency of, government services. Almost all Indian-government websites come under NIC.

In 1975, the Government of India strategically decided to take effective steps for the development of information systems and utilization of information resources and also for introducing computer based decision support system (informatics-led development) in government ministries and departments to facilitate planning and programme implementation to further the growth of economic and social development. Following this, the Central Government nucleated a high priority plan project "National Informatics Centre (NIC)" in 1976, and later on with the financial assistance of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to the tune of US$4.1 million

Nagaland situated in the north-eastern India and it is considered to be one of the most remote states in the Country. Implementation of developmental work has been an uphill task due to the difficult terrain of the state and in this context, the presence of NIC in Nagaland acquires more significance. NIC State Centre was established in Nagaland in the year 1989. Except for the newly created three districts i.e. Kiphire, Longleng and Peren, NIC District Centres are fully operational in all the other eight districts. NIC Nagaland State Centre, located at the New Secretariat Complex, Kohima is the apex NIC body in the state and co-ordinates with the working of all the District Centres and the State Government.

NIC had pioneered in bringing IT culture to Nagaland way back in the early nineties with its nationwide satellite-based computer communication network (NICNET). It provides e-mail services, Internet access, file transfer facility, office automation, development of computer-based Management Information System (MIS), etc. Setting up of Community Information Centres (CIC) in 52 blocks of Nagaland has extended the reach of NIC in providing services to the people at the grassroots level. NIC has helped in making the state of Nagaland a part of the Global village.
