Technology driven and innovation powered, Bhamashah scheme is persistently augmenting its processes towards enhancing the seamless payment procedure and beneficiary satisfaction. The Rajasthan government is planning to launch email-service platform to its citizens.
The Bhamashah scheme has ushered in an unprecedented wave of digital payments to beneficiaries across the Desert state. The email facility will cater to demands and needs of beneficiaries of the Bhamashah scheme.
A bid document floated by the government said: “When a resident gets his or her Bhamashah Card, an electronic kitty consisting of his or her Bhamashah enrolment details (eCard), eVault… and a free e-mail account shall be automatically provisioned by a system and notifications of the same shall be sent to the resident on his or her registered mobile number and/or e-mail.”
This will be the first time in the history of India that a government beneficiary scheme is launched with emails which are provisioned at the receipt of Bhamashah card.
The email service is expected to be launched by August end by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.
The beneficiaries will have to register themselves on the website Rajasthan.in after which they will be provided with a unique email ID. Not only this, the beneficiaries will also have the platform to get their Bamashah card registered on the same site.
According to sources privy to the development, the bid has been finalized. A unique email-ID will automatically be generated after registration and authentication of Bhamashah card on the website, the tender document says.
RajComp Info Services Limited, the state government’s IT arm has been roped in all IT needs including assimilating the required hardware and operating system.
The capacity of mailboxes is expected to scale up extensively over the next 3 years when the government expects that the mailbox capacity will escalate to over 2 crores. However, the state government has initially set up the capacity for 25 lakh state residents.
