Abstract: Education is one of the most important factors in achieving the development goals of the country. It is the key to the national development. In India Education has seen massive growth in recent years. On one hand, this growth promises to produce more skilled individuals to fulfill needs of ever growing Indian economy and on the other hand it poses a huge challenge for the governing bodies like UGC, AICTE and others to maintain or improve the quality of education. An integrated Higher Education Service System (HESS) at a national level can be one of the key Information and Communication Technology initiatives to help India become a provider of world-class education. This system can provide deep visibility to governing bodies at a university and student level to analyze their performance and hence gear up for future requirements. On the other hand E-Governance solution in the field of educational sector has changed the way administration is being done now. The solution incorporates whole data and processes of an educational Institution into a unified system, making the process uncomplicated, well organized and error proof. The solution is designed to make the system user-friendly, time saving and cost saving also. Many of them are flexible enough to adapt to the changing educational environment efficiently and quickly. EGovernance helps in improving transparency, providing speedy information, dissemination, improving administrative efficiency and public services in all the aspects of education. Educational institutions may have various requirements that include computerization and management of processes such as registration, admission, student information, classes, time table, transport, attendance, library, salary and expenses, examinations, performance, grades, hostels, security and reports. Many of the software providers allow their clients to choose from the available modules to suit their needs. In this paper, an attempt has been made to discuss the concept of E-Governance and use of latest application and initiatives in education sector.
