NIC Uttar Pradesh Lucknow started its services way back in 1988. Garlanded by Ganga and Yamuna, the two pious rivers of Indian mythology, Uttar Pradesh is a rainbow land where multi-hued Indian culture has blossomed from times immemorial. U.P. is the most populous and area wise, the fourth largest state of India. Its administration requires managing 18 Divisions, 75 revenue Districts, 341 tehsils, 1,06,774 villages and a vast population of over 19.96 crores spread over diverse geographical regions. The complexity of administering the state presents equally challenging opportunities for NIC in U.P. Since its inception in 1988, NIC UP State Centre has worked tirelessly behind the scenes to introduce IT culture & Internet services in the state, and is credited with pioneering many IT activities in the Government departments.
