All that you need to know about Code for GovTech 2023

India has witnessed a remarkable growth of Digital Public Goods (DPGs) in recent times. The launch of Namma Yatri, a collaborative effort of Beckn Open Collective, Juspay, and Auto Rickshaw Drivers Union Bangalore, exemplifies this trend.

To further this growth, Code for GovTech (C4GT) has been introduced as India’s first dedicated mentoring program, aimed at creating a community that can build and contribute to global DPGs. Participants selected for the program will work on live open-source projects targeted at solving population-scale governance challenges. They will receive close mentoring from experienced practitioners from Indian GovTech organizations, and a stipend of 1 Lakh for the duration of the program. Additionally, participants have the opportunity to secure a PPI and PPO after the program ends.

This program is run by Samagra, a mission-driven governance consulting firm, and supported by Digital Public Goods Alliance and Omidyar Network India as knowledge partners.

If you’re interested in making an impact using open source, this is a unique opportunity to do so!

The coding period for selected participants would be from July – August.


C4GT is open to students and working professionals who possess the requisite coding skills. It is open to anyone who is interested in software development and who wants to contribute to open-source projects.

Candidates can register individually only.
