The digital infrastructure as a utility to every citizen includes easy access to common service centre and "cradle-to grave digital identity", e-Governance and e-Services on demand envisage electronic financial transactions and mobile platform based services, it said.
"Besides other benefits, the launch of these services would make e-governance visible; inject quite a dose of efficiency in the administration, and make Haryana move up the ladder of progressive states," the Chief Minister said.
The e-services and other add-on facilities launched by Khattar include -- Access to Common Service Centre, Services on demand, e-Stamping, Jeevan Pramaan, Revised State Portal, Aadhaar-enabled biometric Attendance System, CM Window, Mobile
app and Aadhaar-linked registration of birth.
"Haryana is the first state in the country to launch some services on such large scale," Khattar said.
He said the state government plans to provide the citizens access to 'Access to Common Service Centre' (CSC) in their villages, followed by which 2,500 CSCs shall be set up across the state.
"Today, we are enabling the CSCs to deliver 20 e-services in the fields of revenue and health as well as other B2C (business to consumer) services through CSC-SPV, a Government of India entity. Under this, a citizen can file application for various kinds of certificates.
