Similarly, Kisan Seva Kendra, Ration Card, Jan Aadhaar Card, Residential Certificate, Caste Certificate, PAN Card, electricity payment, mobile recharge, Geo-map, photocopy, online medical consultation along with information on new initiatives launched by the Prime Minister will also be available from the village.
Notably, Rajsamand, the constituency of MP Diya Kumari, is the only district where the scheme is being implemented first apart from the constituencies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, Varanasi and Patna respectively.
All 216 Panchayat Headquarters of Rajsamand district have been included under the Digi Gram Yojana. Work is on the verge of starting at most Panchayat Headquarters. MP Diya Kumari is personally giving directions regarding this scheme by remaining in constant contact with CSC representatives through VC.
