Governance and service on demand
Government services should be seamlessly integrated together and be available to citizens on demand. For example, in case of cash booking it is booked now with a simple phone call or a mobile app now. This facility is linked with the finance department for subsidy, UIDAI for the verification and the gas utility companies for the supply.
