Ramban’s e-Suvidha portal bags national award

JAMMU: In a great recognition of its efforts at making the public services delivery easy and accessible to the people, Ramban district administration will be bestowed with a national award for e-Governance for its mobile application e-Suvidha.

Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances under the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions has awarded e-Suvidha initiative of Ramban District with the ‘Silver Award’ under the Category ‘Excellence in District Level Initiative in e-Governance’ of the National Awards for e-Governance Scheme 2021-2022.

“This e-Governance Silver Award is dedicated to the people of Ramban. We shall strive to make greater strides in future,” said Mussarat Islam, Deputy Commissioner Ramban, confirming the development.

Launched one-and-a-half year ago, the e-Suvidha mobile application aims to bring a number of public delivery services and departments on the digital platform, and was developed after the Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha laid continuous stress on designing and developing digital platforms to facilitate the people across the UT.

Ramban e-Suvidha provides access to people to basic services like plumbing, electric works, mobile and laptop troubleshooting, masonry and skilled jobs on a digital platform on their smart phones, besides linking many important departments like Health, Common Service Centres, Food & Civil Supplies, Banks and other financial institutions.

The Silver Award, it may be mentioned, carries a certificate and a trophy for the project and a cash Award of Rs. 3 lakh, besides certificates for each team member, associated with the project.

“The trophy and certificates will be conferred upon the team of officials during the 25th National Conference on e-Governance (NCeG) scheduled to be held on 25th-26th November, 2022 at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University (SMVDU) Campus, Kakryal, Jammu,” informed Alam.
