As part of the Digital India Programme, it was envisaged that a standardized framework be implemented for all Government websites.

With diversification of ICT landscape, it has become absolutely imperative for Government Websites to bring in qualitative and quantitative transformations in wake of changing user expectations. As part of the Digital India Programme, it was envisaged that a standardized framework be implemented for all Government websites to improve the presentation, re-usability and consistency of these websites. The Content Management Framework (CMF) project has been initiated with this view of standardization and improvement in presentation and content delivery of websites of Government Ministry/Department websites. The CMF is currently planned to be rolled out for 100 websites of Central Government Ministries/Departments to foster development of citizen centric and universally accessible websites.


Implementation of CMF will benefit both for Government Departments and common citizens as well.


CMF shall establish a single window service for the Government Departments for advice & training to develop GIGW compliant websites. These would be made available at the Web Resource Centre(WRC) repository. Capacity Building, on different aspects of web design & technology shall in turn ameliorate the overall quality of Indian Government websites in cyberspace.
