“The launch of the PMO App is an important milestone in the journey of government-citizen engagement. Google played the role of a catalyst for the app development contest, where everything from sourcing of ideas and functionalities to wireframe design to App development was crowdsourced using MyGov platform,” said Gaurav Dwivedi, CEO, MyGov.

The app will give citizens access to critical information about the government’s flagship programmes in 10 Indian languages.
