Abstract: E-governance is an unprecedented opportunity for us to change the way the country is governed. The governments are today in the process of transformation worldwide. This research is an effort to evolve a Shared Vision of Stakeholders for leveraging the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for delivering good governance through the ||Participatory Stakeholder Assessment|| (PSA) and its weighted analysis. It is an attempt to identify and establish linkages between the factors responsible for creating a conducive environment for effective/successful implementation of e-governance and factors relating to good governance, e-governance issues and challenges, demography, economy, geography, culture and others, especially in the Indian context.

Keywords: good governance; e-governance; electronic governance; stakeholders; ICTs; information technology; communications technology; India; participatory stakeholder assessment.
