In a remarkable stride towards modernizing public services and embracing digital governance, Jammu and Kashmir have achieved an impressive feat.
Chief Secretary, Arun Kumar Mehta, proudly announced the integration of 913 citizen-centric online services onto the e-UNNAT portal.
This strategic move has propelled Jammu and Kashmir to secure the coveted second position among all States and Union Territories in India, underscoring its commitment to enhancing ease, accessibility, and convenience for its citizens.
“We consider this achievement a significant milestone in our ongoing mission to offer seamless services to the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” Chief Secretary Mehta affirmed.
The surge from a mere 35 online services in 2021 to a whopping 913 at present showcases the resolute dedication of the J-K administration towards embracing digitalization.
This advancement positions the region ahead of Kerala, which currently offers 911 online services, and places it in second place nationwide, trailing only Madhya Pradesh.
The transformational ‘Digital J-K Programme’, introduced with great vigour last year, has been instrumental in this digital leap. The surge in the range of online services reflects the collaborative efforts of the IT Department and NIC, both of which have played a pivotal role in streamlining services across various departments.
