Chandigarh, January 9: Bringing citizen-centric services to the fingertips of the people, Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday launched Punjab mSewa – a Unified Mobile Application that offers access to various services on Smart Phones.
The App has been developed with the vision to provide citizens with seamless and hassle-free access to all government services through a single Mobile App, without the need for multiple Mobile Apps of different departments, said the Chief Minister, unveiling the unique app.
With this, citizens can even access their documents over Digilocker via mSewa App directly, said Captain Amarinder, promising continued efforts by his government to ensure more citizen-friendly digital initiatives in the future.
The Mobile Application is available for citizens on their Android and iOS Smartphones, and can be downloaded from their respective App store by searching mSewa Punjab.

The mobile application platform is based on the Enterprise Architecture that the state government is following in its Digital journey, said Mahajan.
Vini further shared that citizens will be able to make online payments for the services they wish to apply, using multiple payment options. Citizens can also track the status of services applied via mSewa or Sewa Kendras.
