This year’s C4GT program offered students the opportunity to work on live open-source projects to solve governance challenges, with 1:1 mentorship from experienced practitioners in leading GovTech organizations. 

Supported by Omidyar Network India, with Samagra as the organizing partner and five mentoring partners: SamagraX, Postman, Tekdi Technologies, Sanketika and MUI – this year, C4GT received over 300 applications from students across 57 engineering colleges. From these, 13 students were selected as official Code for GovTech contributors!

This year’s cohort worked on a range of exciting GovTech issues, with projects that leveraged the power of open-source technologies to improve India’s public education system, streamline government workflows and create citizen-centric governance processes. Here we share some of the unique solutions that were showcased in this year’s program:

Shiksha:
Shiksha makes highly configurable modules interoperable and compliant with NDEAR principles that can be embedded and extended easily by developers and help improve end-user experiences in public education. They will help state governments become NDEAR compliant.

X-Admin:
X-Admin is a low-code framework that seeks to create internal admin tools for more efficient governance. X-Admin aims to build next-generation electronic registries and verifiable credentials.

Machine Learning: 
The machine learning platform allows anyone to train models from data sets, experiment between different models, and monitor production performance to improve government data use.
