The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Government of India has launched the "Self4Society" (Main Nahin Hum), a digital platform created to bring synergy for societal change. Both web portal and app was launched which will enable various organizations to create their own Initiatives under the identified National Causes to serve the society better.

In doing so, the portal is expected to help catalyse greater collaboration towards the service of the weaker sections of society, especially by leveraging the benefits of technology. It is also expected to generate wider participation of interested people who are motivated to work for the benefit of society.
The Self4Society platform is the premiere workspace for Electronics and IT Corporates to organise employee engagements (Initiatives) for social work. The organisation can create their own Initiatives under the identified National Causes.
The Self4Society platform comprises of the following:
HR or CSR representative of Organisations create initiatives which are a set of tasks related to a cause category listed in the platform.

The details also include the name and description for the Initiative, along with the organiser's contact details, location and task details.
The Initiatives created on the Self4Society portal are synched up on the Self4Society App from where the employees can indicate willingness to volunteer and mark their presence.
