New Delhi: The Uttar Pradesh government is getting ready avail services offered by the Revenue department, such as certificates related to income, caste, and residence, available on the UMANG (e-governance) app in the near future with the goal of making it simple for citizens to access government services on a single platform.
“The services of the Revenue department, including certificates related to income, caste and residence, over the years, were earlier made available through e-District portals at all the ‘Jan Seva Kendras’ (public service centres). Now, these services have been integrated into the UMANG mobile app through APIs/Web service, which has also been successfully tested,” said the Chief Minister’s Office on Sunday.
The National e-Governance Division of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology created the UMANG (Unified Mobile Application for New-age Governance) app, which Prime Minister Narendra Modi introduced in 2017. The programme simplifies utility payments and gives users access to a wide range of services offered by different state and federal government agencies.
According to the IT and Electronics Department, citizens would now be able to access services without fuss and without having to go to Jan Seva Kendras by paying just Rs 15 as a user fee for each government service, according to Sudhir Garg, Principal Secretary, Revenue Department.
The primary goal of the change is to give the general public access to G2C (Government to Citizen) services on a single platform. With a single click, Uttar Pradesh residents will be able to check their status, confirm certificate information, download current certificates, and access a wide range of other services.
