Abstract: E-governance is the interaction between a government and its citizens to deliver services in an efficient manner by means of information technology and telecommunication. The current study takes into account three aspects namely - economical, governance and services that impact the e-governance diffusion in the telecenters set up at the hobli level of Karnataka state. A framework is created with these aspects and validated through the present study. The study explores whether gender differentials exist in the e-governance diffusion process. The research adds up to the literature in establishing that gender differentials disappear when the e-governance is in the stage of maturity. One-way ANOVA is used to identify the gender differentials in e-governance diffusion through the NadaKacheri centres of Karnataka. The study proposes policy changes by the government to render better services and governance to the citizens.
