Minister of state for information technology and science technology departments (independent charge) Feroze Khan on Monday unveiled a state portal at the Civil Secretariat here.


The portal will provide a single window 'Any Time, Any Where' access to information and services of various departments of the Jammu and Kashmir government at all levels of governance for the citizens and business.

It will provide comprehensive, accurate and reliable and will act as a one-stop source of information about the state and its various facets.

The official websites of various departments of the government, which were accessible to citizens on different addresses, will now be accessible through this portal.

The project aims to enhance the services provided to the citizens through Common Service Centres (CSCs) and entails delivery of the services through CSCs by leveraging the common IT infrastructure.

This will enable the citizens to download forms and submit their applications electronically through a common gateway.

This important initiative facilitating electronic service delivery will provide significant benefits to the citizens, especially in the form of a single gateway to the citizens for service delivery. The minister desired to add disaster management features to this portal as well for the use at the time of the disasters for providing free flow of information related to advisories of various departments like public health engineering, flood control, health, public distribution system etc and also keep citizens informed about the rescue and relief operations.
