Hyderabad: The State government is taking rapid strides towards ‘mobile governance’. After the Departments of Home and Transport and Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) developed new mobile applications (apps) to make their services available to the customers , a new single app is being designed to offer more than 100 citizen centric services, by ‘Mee Seva’ centres, to the smart phones users in the state.

The new mobile app would allow the customers to download all the applications and submit them immediately by paying the requisite service charges and fee online.

The services include–filing of birth and death certificates, applications for rations cards, new gas connections, voter registration, permission for buildings, trade licences, e-pass books, extracts of house site patta, fee reimbursement, filing an ‘arms- licence’ application, residence certificate, school registration form, sanction of incentives for industries etc.
The officials of the state IT department told

The Hans India that the new mobile app would come into force within six months. A high level technical team has been constituted to create the app.

The government has come out with an idea to offer all Mee Seva services on mobile after the apps created by the State Transport department, Home Department and GHMC received overwhelming response from the people.


The M-Wallet app created by the Department of Transport has already crossed three lack downloads. The M-Wallet allows people to show their vehicle registration and licence papers without carrying the originals.

Departments of Agriculture, Panchayat Raj, Rural Development and Revenue departments are also busy developing new mobile apps.

The agriculture department is planning to provide all information including weather forecast, availability of seeds and new farm techniques to the farmers.

Panchayat Raj department is designing an app to address the local issues in the villages and mandal head quarters. The Revenue department would develop a mobile app to download property documents directly.

“The mobile apps have proved to be a great enabler in delivering efficient administration across all departments instantly”, said an official. Nearly 400 apps are expected to be developed by the various Departments in the next two years.
