To offer citizen centric services, the Panchkula administration, like Chandigarh, is also planning to launch a mobile application in April.

It has been learnt that the administration had planned to get an application prepared much earlier, and had roped in a Chandigarh-based software company, but the UT administration stole the march and launched the app on January 27.

"The application will be launched in April, and the work is going on in full swing,"said Panchkula deputy commissioner (DC) Vivek Atray.

According to district informatics officer Manju Aggarwal, the application will be available on both Windows and Android platforms.

With the help of the application, she said, people would also be able to apply for tenant registration and verification, permission for processions, voter card, employment exchange registration. They can also check the status of complaints made through the CM Window, and even file complaints to deputy commissioner.

"Information regarding where to apply and how to apply for births and deaths registration, marriage registration, ration card and bus pass will be there,"said Aggarwal.

People can also check information regarding upcoming events, their emails, telephone numbers and helpline numbers through the app. Various government departments will also provide information through the application.

Apply online for driving license

Panchkula residents can soon apply for driving licences (DL) and registration certificates (RC) of vehicles through online mode, and the mobile application.

"We have done some test on seven-eight cases, and will soon launch it formally,"said Manju Aggarwal, district informatics officer.

As of now, one has to come to the E-Disha centre in Sector 1 to purchase a concerned file. After submitting documents, one has to submit the fee at the centre. But with the online facility, people can visit and click on citizen services.

After filling the form for the service concerned, one can pay the fee online and get an acknowledgment slip. With the slip, one has to visit the E-Disha centre to deliver the documents.

"With the online facility, we will be able to save the time spent on uploading inputs and payment of fee,"said Aggarwal.
