e-District Project (Pilot)


The eDistrict project has been conceptualized to improve and enhance the efficiencies of various Departments at the district-level to enable seamless service delivery to the citizen.  Front-ends under the scheme, in the form of citizen facilitation centers, are envisioned to be built at District, Tehsil, Sub-division and Block levels. Village-level front-ends would be established through Common Services Centres (CSCs) for delivery of services.

This scheme is financial assisted by Govt. of India in 80:20 ratio. District pauri was selected as pilot for this project and now the project is being state wide rolled out. Under this project the maximum services related to citizens (i.e issue of certificates – Caste, income, Domicile, Character, Solvency, Hill Area Certificate, Freedom fighter, Uttarajivi,  Birth, Death  and other services like Old Age Pension, Widow Pension, Handicap Pension, Registration in Employment Exchange, Renewal of Employment Card, Pariwar register copy and entry, Compensation for Damage due to disaster etc) delivered by District Magistrate office are to be covered in a computerized manner.
