Digital India Corporation (DIC) is a not-for-profit Company set up by Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Govt. of India, under Section 8 of Companies Act 2013. DIC leads and guides in realizing the vision, objectives and goals of the Digital India program. DIC has been playing a pivotal role in supporting the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology in Programme Management and implementation Projects under Digital India and initiatives undertaken by Ministries/ Departments, both at the Central and State levels and provides policy level support for conceptualizing, architecting and implementing key Digital India projects across sectors.

Healthcare, Education, Livelihood Enhancement (Agriculture, Crafts, MSMEs) and Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (Diyangjan).

To undertake these functions, DIC attracts talented resources both from within government and market. The judicious mix of talent ensures that Government is equipped with a broad spectrum of resources for successful design of Digital India related projects. Given the nature of responsibilities assigned to DIC, DIC needs to attract talent from technology, law, policy, marketing, social science, and administrative spheres. All these talents may not be necessarily available with the Government. Hence DIC is willing to take people from industry and academia to work with it on sabbatical or secondment from their parent organisations.

The objective and purpose of this effort has been laid down in the general principles and guidelines (attached below) for taking personnel on sabbatical or secondment from their parent organisations.
