Prime Minister has a thing for digitization and we Indians have come to know it well. After launching the popular app BHIM for digital payments in India, he has launched another app called Umang which intends to provide you government services at the touch of a button. Once the rollout of the app is complete, Umang intends to help you with as much as 1,200 different government services all by yourself. The Umang app is available for Android, iOS and Windows Phone platform which means it can be installed on virtually any platform.
Let’s have a look at what you can do with the Umang app:
The Umang App intends to be your one stop shop for all government services so you don’t have to download other apps individually. The app can help you to apply for a passport, find your nearest Passport Seva Kendra, and also help you book an appointment. Things, like applying for a PAN card and getting relevant information like what all services need to be linked with your Adhaar card, are also handled by the Umang App.
Booking a gas cylinder should not take you more than a minute either since the app comes with the option to book one inbuilt. At least 12 categories of services like Agriculture, Education, finance, Health, Police, etc come with easy access in the Umang app.
What do you need to access the Umang app?
The Umang App requires you to register yourself with your mobile phone number along with your Adhaar card. Once your Adhaar card is linked to the app you can avail various government services provided in the app. The catch here is that if you do not have an Adhaar card or somehow do not wish to link one to your Umang app account you will not be able to access the application at all.
The app is available for download on Android, iOS, and windows phone platform and can be installed at any smart phone in the country. More services and features are on the way and will soon be displayed in the Umang app without you having to update it time and again.
