Bangalore: In a far reaching move to standardize the digital preservation of e-Governance Records, the Ministry of Communications and IT, Government of India has notified the Standard for Preservation Information Documentation (eGOV-PID) of Electronic Records, recently. The notified standard also includes the Best Practices and Guidelines for production of preservable electronic records. As per the notification, the digital preservation standard is now applicable to all e-governance applications across India.

The standards have been developed by the R&D team of the Centre of Excellence for Digital Preservation at the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Pune. Centre of Excellence for Digital Preservation is a flagship project under the National Digital Preservation Programme sponsored by Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), and entrusted with the Human-Centred Design & Computing Group of C-DAC, Pune. As part of this project, HCDC Group of C-DAC is given the responsibility to develop digital preservation policy, standards, tools and technologies. Therefore, the digital preservation R & D team at C-DAC has developed the digital preservation guidelines and standard for e-governance to ensure that the electronic records are produced in the preservable manner. The standard and best practices have been further enhanced through high-level reviews by expert committees constituted by the DeitY.
