Jharkhand's 'Mobile Governance' launches 15 new apps to make the state industry friendly


Taking another step towards realisation of Digital India dreams, Jharkhand has introduced 'Mobile Governance' as the state marked its statehood day. "The theme of today is 'Mobile Governance' and 15 mobile applications have been introduced," Chief Minister Raghubar Das announced while addressing the people to mark the 16th Foundation Day.

Approximately 2/3rd of the population in Jharkhand are mobile users and it could be a strong medium to disseminate information about government services and welfare schemes and rein in corruption as well, he said. "We can also get invaluable suggestions from the people (through Mobile Governance)," Das added.

To facilitate quick clearance for industries, the state has introduced 'Advantage Jharkhand Portal', the country's first single window portal. For setting up Food Processing Industry through this medium, MoU worth Rs 880 crore has been signed and land is being identified for entrepreneurs, he said.

To give the private sector an equal footing in the process of developmental of the state, Das said Jharkhand Industrial Park Policy, 2015 has been implemented.
