In the past three years, the Government has endeavoured to remove corruption in every form and technology presents itself as one of the most potent tools. But, technological interventions work when the interventions are simple, transparent and include a public feedback mechanism. Utilising advancements in technology, the Government is following a multi-pronged strategy to tackle the problem in an effective manner

1. Transferring benefits directly to beneficiaries
2. Making government procurements transparent
3. Digitization of service deliveries
4. Promoting Cashless Transactions
5. Jan Bhagidari
6. Open Government Data

Direct Benefit Transfer was a significant step towards plugging leakages. Amount transferred via DBT is increasing and leakages are reducing. The government has laid equal emphasis on citizens getting Aadhaar. The Jan Dhan-Aadhaar-Mobile (JAM) trinity will bring complete accountability in monetary transactions and eliminate ghost beneficiaries.

Additionally, Government e-Marketplace (GeM) was launched to make government procurements simple and transparent, eliminating any scope of corruption. Faceless e-assessment for income tax payers introduced from 2018 was another important step. Tax officers now communicate with the taxpayers through the ‘E-Proceeding' facility which reduces human interface.

The fight against corruption is a long and arduous one. Various online platforms have been introduced by the government, wherein the citizens can join forces with them by sharing their feedback and views. The decision to involve the honest citizens of our country in the fight increases the strength of the force against corruption to a great extent.

In the same vein, MyGov invites citizens to share their ideas on how technology can be used to uproot corruption and suggest innovations to fight the malice in an effective manner. Ideas and suggestions can be provided in the form of a comment below or by attaching a PDF document.

Taxi booking app is as such not a new idea, but implementing similar thing to cover all autorikshaws and kaali-peeli taxis is still a need.
This helps in four different fronts.
a. Public/Customers get to book a ride at fingertips.
b. Auto/Taxi drivers get more efficient way to serve.
c. Government agencies and transport department get simpler way to implement regulations and revised fares.
d. No need of Ride meters anymore, as app serves as meter.

GST पोर्टल को हिन्दी वर्जन करने की कृपा करे।
ताकी BHIM की तरह लोगो को अच्छे से समझा सके और समझ सके।
शायद आपको पता नही होगा GST न० निशुल्क है परन्तु बाजार मे उसकी कीमत १२०० से लेकर २५०० तक है। रिर्टन भरने के लिए भी अलग से १०० मासिक से २५०० वार्षिक अलग से देना पड़ता है।
इस तरह जनता को यही लग रहा है सरकार हमे लूट रही है।
