Gujarat government to launch mobile app for delivery of common services
15 June 2016 Current Affairs: The Gujarat government has decided to launch the mobile app 'Digital Gujarat' by August 15. Our aim is to put most of the services on the fingertips of citizens, so that they don't have to visit government offices.Initially, it would offer 30 services for which the citizens hitherto had to visit government offices or access the online portal digitalgujarat.gov.in.

Using this app, people can apply for various services, such as ration card. Initially, the services available through the app would include procurement of ration card, senior citizen certificate, caste certificate, domicile certificate, income certificate, widow certificate, SC/ST certificate, non creamy-layer certificate and religious minority certificate. These services are currently available through our portal .

To add 70 more services in later stages and take the number of services to 100.The citizens would no longer be required to visit any government office even to register himself.

Earlier, when the common services portal was launched, people were still required to visit nearbyJan Seva Kendra to verify their credentials before being registered. Now, we have done away with that provision, as we would verify the authenticity of the (app) user by checking his Aadhaar number or ration card number.Apart from providing e-services, the app would be equipped with several other features, includinge-Locker to digitally store certificates.

With smartphone sales increasing by 3.9 percent in the first quarter of 2016, it is a good inititiative to bolster the integration and convenience of availing government services.
