In this globalized tech-oriented world, the role of technology in governance plays a significant role in governance and policy making. The author of this research article analyzes the role and significance of technology in governance and policy-making processes in recent times. Some of the facets touched by technology in the governance and policy making process include communication, recording, storage, and outreach. Thus far, technology and policymaking have always served and survived as two separate world entities, which will always hinder solving world problems if they fail to meet and co-exist. The author explore the process undertaken to re-engineer the governance regime in accordance with recent technological advancements. The significant increase in productivity, affordability, accessibility, transparency, and accountability has all been attributed to integrating technology into governance. The motive behind the integration of technology and governance is the use of technology to both help in governing and to be governed. The aspect of governance that enables the subjects of the state to actively participate in the process of governing through technological outreach features gives rise to more significant participatory democracy. Of this, the need to create higher levels of involvement of technologists in the public policy domain relating to the supply and demand of public problems arises. The amalgamation of science and technology with policy making creates an entirely new regime. With the capacity and capabilities of the AI to detect anomalies with a reduced processing time, this can minimize the financial astray in policy budgeting with its intelligent predictions. This article also provides insights into the implementation of information and communication technology infrastructures into the Indian judiciary and how this progressive implementation has shaped the productivity and efficiency of the legal system in India. The Indian judiciary made serious efforts through national policies and action plans to computerize the overwhelming data produced by the Indian judicial system. The state of the judicial system was crippled by the massive overload of backlog cases and a high number of judicial vacancies. These efforts led to a more productive and enhanced judicial system, both qualitatively and quantitatively. These efforts have been put into overdrive by releasing multi-functionary Artificial intelligence innovations post-pandemic era. This particular development of artificial intelligence can potentially augment human processes like decision-making and comparative analysis far superior with faster and more consistent results. This system-enabled e-filing and artificial-enabled reference/storage methods have eased the difficulties faced by the judiciary through paperwork and other less conventional methods of storage of legal data.
