What is eDistrict?

Districts are the de facto front-end of government where most Government-to-Consumer or G2C interaction takes place. The eDistrict project was conceptualized to improve this experience and enhance the efficiencies of the various Departments at the district-level to enable seamless service delivery to the citizen.

Front-ends under the scheme, in the form of citizen facilitation centers, are envisoned to be built at District, Tehsil, Sub-division and Block levels. Village-level front-ends would be established through Common Services Centres (CSCs) for delivery of services.

 

Indicative services planned to be delivered through this MMP include:

  • Certificates: Creation and distribution of certificates for income, domicile, caste, Birth, Death etc.
  • Licences: Arms Licenses etc.
  • Public Distribution System (PDS): Issue of Ration Card, etc.
  • Social Welfare Schemes: Disbursement of old-age pensions, family pensions, widow pensions, etc.
  • Complaints: Related to unfair prices, absentee teachers, non-availability of doctor, etc.
  • RTI: Online filing and receipt of information relating to the Right to Information Act
