Today in current scenario, much of the research are focusing on opinion mining and sentiments analysis due to its high volume of opinion available in blogs, discussion forum, review sites, surveys, news, social network sites etc available in electronic format. Now researchers are anticipated to build up a system that can recognize and classify opinion as represented in digital form. We have a chance to make appropriate belief of a thousand views and discover problems as soon as they occur. Opinion mining can be made appropriately as a sub-discipline of computational linguistics that exactly concentrates on extracting people's opinion from the web, surveys and other which are available digitally. Opinion mining gives us direction in building a system by which we can bring together and inspect opinions about the product available digitally such as surveys, blogs and other online format. Here in this paper we have considered E-Governance basically as the application of Information and Communications Technology to define the functioning of Government in order to bring about 'Simple, Moral, Accountable, Responsive and Transparent' (SMART) governance. In this paper we are trying to evolve the sentiments towards E-Government projects and policies on the basis of opinion collected from the people. We try to analyze the effectiveness of E-governance using the concept of opinion mining. For this we took the opinions of people regarding smart city.
