Empowering India provides citizens with easy access to information about political parties, candidates and electoral constituencies at national and provincial levels. The basic premise is that information promotes transparency in the democratic process, thus allowing citizens to assess their political leaders’ performance and thus hold them to accountability. A more responsive political process encourages citizens to actively participate in the largest democratic exercise in the world. The primary focus of Empowering India is the voter, who can realistically contribute to making democracy meaningful not just in form, but in substance. The website currently has detailed election results since 1977 and has also captured background information filed by thousands of candidates who contested elections at national and provincial levels since 2003. The information is provided at the respective constituency level in an easy to compare manner and is also available for various analytical purposes.
e-Annual Report enables entrepreneurs in Estonia to submit annual reports via the e-reporting environment of the Central Commercial Registry. About 99% of more than 120,000 companies registered in Estonia use this new method of reporting. Its uniformity makes the entry and submission of data significantly more convenient for companies, as there is only one place and specific channel to submit all required data. Companies do not have to submit data to public authorities more than once, as the data reported is retrievable from the central system by all other relevant databases (statistics, tax office, banks, etc.) leading to less red tape for all. The processing of business data has become significantly quicker and easier, as the data can be processed immediately and is accessible to interested parties both in the private and public sectors. The e-government system used in Estonia has created more transparent, efficient, convenient and trustworthy relations between citizens and government agencies. e-Annual Report uses the internationally recognized XBRL standard, meets all WCAG requirements and responds to AAA level, thus anticipating the European Digital Agenda 2020.
