E-governance brings urban and rural areas together and breaks the barrier of distance to lead an efficient administration. Surprisingly, e-governance has not made enough impact on the people as e-commerce and e-learning have done. In the digital world, libraries are emerging as means of creation and dissemination of knowledge. It is enough for e-commerce and e-learning to be reactive whereas e-governance to be proactive. While e-commerce and e-learning involve information management, e-governance involves knowledge management (KM). KM is the management of information, skill, experience, innovation, and intelligence. E-governance based on knowledge management system (KMS) is built on KM cycle of knowledge capturing, knowledge sharing, knowledge enhancing, and knowledge preserving. A few popular models of e-governance use a concept of "knowledge centers" to share knowledge. The digital library requires searching, sorting and KM strategies for maintaining/updating the resources. This paper describes challenges in KM, technological growth and studies development of KMS-based e-governance, which is path-based. It also discusses symbiosis between knowledge society and e-governance.
