HP Govt launches ‘e-Aajivika Kendra’ mobile app for its 10 cities
Will offer services like the requirement of a carpenter, electronic repair, tiffin services, beautician, food services and other demand based services of the city
Shimla: Himachal Pradesh Government on September 6, 2017, launched two android-based mobile apps.
One of the applications incorporate web based administration and management tool for City Livelihoods Centres. The second app ‘“e-Aajivika Kendra” is meant for the service providers. These applications are available for download on Google Play Store.
Through these apps, people can connect to the City Livelihoods Centres (CLC) in their respective districts. Through these CLCs, the government expect to bridge a gap between the demand and supply of services in the cities.
These centres will offer services like the requirement of a carpenter, electronic repair, tiffin services, beautician, food services and other demand based services of the city.
Under the Denn Dayal Antyodaya Yojana – National Urban Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NULM), there are total 10 such centres in districts namely Shimla, Solan, Bilaspur, Nahan, Hamirpur, Mandi, Una, Kullu, Dharamshala and Chamba.
A service provider will be required to create a profile through the app. He/she will have to register and submit the required documents to the concerned Urban Local Body.
It works on a simple principle – a customer submits a request for a particular service like a carpenter and the service providers can see these requests.
A service provider can accept or reject a request. After accepting the request for service, a service provider will visit the place mentioned by a customer.
The government also provided a helpline number i.e. 155304 in these Urban Local Bodies to attend enquiries about the availability of services in the CLCs.
The government claimed it is one of its kinds and introduced first time in the country by Himachal.
The mobile apps were officially launched by the Additional Chief Secretary (Urban Development), Manisha Nanda in the presence of the Director Urban Development, Dr. Devender Kumar Gupta, Commissioner MC Shimla, G.C.Negi, Mission Managers from DAY-NULM and representatives from Urban Local Bodies.
