As part of the ongoing Digital India Week celebrations, local administration on Sunday organised a special camp at Garhi Kotaha in Raipur Rani in which more than 1,000 people including Panchkula deputy commissioner (DC) Vivek Atray enrolled for securing digital lockers.

Since July 1, the administration has opened around 30,000 digital lockers that would allow residents to store digitalised copies of their documents online. The online personal space is linked to the Aadhaar card number of each individual and provides a secure access to government-related documents which allows them to avail services more effectively.

District informatics officer (DIO), Manju Aggarwal, said during the camp people were made aware of the uses of Aadhaar card and were encouraged to be digitally literate.

A digital locker can be used to store e-documents as well as e-documents issued by various departments. The users - who will first have to sign in to use a digital locker - will also be provided the facility of digitally-signed e-documents.

Aggarwal said that people could get their digital lockers activated at the common service centre (CSC) in their respective areas.

"All 23 CSCs in the district have been directed to assist residents in getting registered for digital lockers,"she said.

Residents can also register for the digital locker on the website or
