Government has planned to launch the Nagarik Adhikar (Citizen) mobile app for all of their services. Although the mobile app has been heard for a long time, it seems the app is ready for launch now. They are known to integrate all of the government services using the e-governance platform of Government of Nepal.
As per Asgar Ali, the IT advisor to Prime Minister, the Nagarik adhikar/Citizen app will launch in a matter of 2 to 3 months. He revealed more information about the app in the AI expo held in Kathmandu on August 25, 2019.
The app will provide all the government services so that people need not visit the Government offices to get those services. Suppose, you want to apply for a vehicle license, then you do not need to visit the license office. You can apply for it from your home. All you need to enter is your identification for which they are going to use the mobile number. Recently NTA has also appealed people to use SIM cards registered on their self.
Here is what Mr. Asgar Ali writes, “We are working in a very simple but ambitious mobile app ‘नागरिक अधिकार एप्स ‘ to give fully online services for all government services so that no one will need to visit government for most of services”. He also requests to register your mobile under own name if not registered yet. Because it will be the fundamental base to use the app.
Currently, the Nepal government has several system and solutions for each of the services. Each system does not recognize another system. They also have several mobile apps like Passport app, Supreme court of Nepal, Nepal Rajpatra app. Now, they are going to integrate all of those services from one window using Nagarikta ID or Mobile number. If we enter our Nagarikta number or mobile number, they will gather all the information needed, which makes very easy for the registration or service request.
Those services which do not need people to reach the Government offices will come under the scope of the app. But for the first phase, we expect a few services (2 to 3 in number) to come under the app. After which, they will integrate other services gradually.
