“India may be a land of over a 100 problems, but it is also a place for a billion solutions.”
Since last few days what’s happening in our nation is quite Interesting. The much catchy and a trending topic of this week is “Ban on Indian Currency of 500 & 1000 bucks” declared by our Prime Minister of India Mr. Narendra Modi.
He is doing great work for the betterment of our country and now India is feeling “Good days are upon us.”
Why am I saying this?
I am saying this just because while it was happening something more important has been Neglected i.e Integration of new technologies with the government. ‘The UMANG‘ It is the ‘MODIfication‘ by NAMO.
What is UMANG?
Unified Mobile App for New-age Governance
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government are pushing for a master app which will have all the government services integrated. that project or the app is called UMANG.
India today say’s the app will integrate almost 600 government services such as passport services, land records, income tax, e-Post, Women safety, and much more. The government plans to bring this platform to people with an app, an SMS service. Under Digital India, they are planning to make e-governance ‘mobile first’.Sample usage of app includes locating CBSE exam centres, viewing school results, calculating crop insurance premium, accessing soil health cards, booking OPD appointments at government hospitals and viewing lab reports from there, registering and applying for the PMKY scheme, raising EPFO claims and more
This is a very big news for the nation. The application will be out by mid-2017. Our India is connecting to more technologies and the world.
And now I will end my article with the saying “We’re still in the first minutes of the first day of the Internet revolution.” this means it’s just a starting.
