Addressed the SEARCC (South East Asia Regional Computer Confederation) 2011 Asia Pacific Conference at Hotel Intercontinental, the Lalit, in Mumbai on the 12th and 13th of December 2011. The theme of the conference was ‘Collaboration for Inclusive Growth’. The Government is developing a broader framework for enhancing ICT penetration by extending e-enabled governance initiatives. When complemented by the Industry’s support in providing e-interface between the citizen and the Government, it will add a new dimension to the practices of a participatory democracy – a true collaborative approach. Providing ICT products, services, workplace environments and facilities that are accessible and usable for all users is the ultimate goal of “design for all” or “inclusive design”
