One of the major strengths of NIC lies in the area of producing quality software at low cost . Since NIC is working at the grass root levels of the development administration, its expertise is not limited only to software engineering but also lies in the area of implementing it in various sectors of the economy. Thus it possesses Domain expertise as much as expertise in the field of software development, a fact that provides NIC with a solid foundation in the Software Development Process. The various Departments as well as State Centres of NIC are constantly in the pursuit of developing state-of-the-art application software which is customized to the users needs. These Application software packages are completely indigenous and user friendly and are intended to bring the benefits of the latest advancements in IT to the Government’s doorsteps.
