Now Government employees can get email account in NICNET services at no cost


National Informatics Center has a nation wide net work providing a host of services over the network. One of the critical services being provided is the e-mail service. They are in the process of rationalizing the myriad of e-mail addresses offered by NICNET. The growth of the net work services had been going on at an explosive rate and the time has come for stream lining of the e-mail services by adopting a single virtual e-mail server for the whole nation and achieving address resolution in such an environment. The present Version 1.0 of the “NIC Policy on e-mail address” is a step in that direction.


This policy is applicable to all the users of the NICNET services.
