1. MyGov (MyGovIn­dia)

Consumer Voice - - This Is It -

This is one of the most pop­u­lar apps among the masses. The fun­da­men­tal idea of this is to crowdsource ideas from citizens. It is more of a cit­i­zenen­gage­ment plat­form for di­rect par­tic­i­pa­tion in gov­er­nance. It gives in­di­vid­u­als an av­enue for chan­nelis­ing their ideas, com­ments, and cre­ative sug­ges­tions to cen­tral min­istries and as­so­ci­ated or­gan­i­sa­tions. Citizens can par­tic­i­pate in pol­icy for­mu­la­tion and pro­gramme im­ple­men­ta­tion to usher in an era of di­rect par­tic­i­pa­tory democ­racy.

2. IRCTC Con­nect (IRCTC Of­fi­cial)

In a country with one of the world’s largest rail net­works and the high­est num­ber of peo­ple com­mut­ing by trains on ev­ery­day ba­sis, this app was much needed. This fea­ture-rich app helps users search and book/can­cel train tick­ets from smart­phones. It gives reg­u­lar jour­ney alerts and re­tains pas­sen­ger in­for­ma­tion so that the user need not fill up same per­sonal de­tails again and again to book tick­ets. And yes, it has nearly elim­i­nated the agent net­work.

3. mPass­port Seva

Pass­port Seva Project is be­ing ex­e­cuted by the con­sular, pass­port and visa (CPV) divi­sion of the min­istry of ex­ter­nal af­fairs (MEA), Govern­ment of In­dia. This aims at pro­vid­ing all pass­port-re­lated ser­vices to In­dian citizens in a speedy, con­ve­nient and trans­par­ent man­ner. This is one of the largest projects of the govern­ment un­der the Na­tional e-Gov­er­nance Plan (NeGP). Un­der the project, the ‘mPass­port Seva’ app has been in­tro­duced to of­fer a wide va­ri­ety of ser­vices to smart­phone users. This app pro­vides gen­eral in­for­ma­tion on var­i­ous steps in­volved in ob­tain­ing a pass­port; helps lo­cate near­est Pass­port Seva Ken­dra; and tells user what doc­u­ments to carry while go­ing for the ver­i­fi­ca­tion pur­pose. It also al­lows pass­port ap­pli­ca­tion sta­tus track­ing.
