Karnataka government is preparing a draft policy that will enable all the citizen services to be delivered through mobile phone based applications.
These services will include payment of utility bills, railway ticket booking, DTH payments, and many more.
“Whatever services you are today getting through (state-run) Bangalore One (citizen service centres), we will be able to launch these services on mobile platform”, Karnataka IT, BT, Science and Technology and e-Governance secretary, M N Vidyashankar told PTI.
“Once the core group comprising those from the industry and government experts, chaired by Director of International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore, Professor S Sadagopan, clears the policy after fine-tuning it, it would be taken to the State Cabinet for approval,” Vidyashankar said
How long will the entire process take is the biggest question that comes to mind, but whenever that happens it will reduce the queues at the 79 Bangalore One centres in the city and also save the citizens a lot of time and effort.
