eMitra Online Governance Portal for Rajasthan

EMitra: Introduction

The government of Rajasthan has set up an e-governance portal by the name of eMitra way back in the year 2004 in order to furnish citizen services as well as business services. The name eMitra finds its origin in the Sanskrit word Mitrah (मित्रः) meaning friend. Some of the services of this portal include utility bill payment, application, digitally signed certificate services, banking, telemedicine,  e-commerce services and many more with new services being added at every turn. As of today, the eMitra portal provides 149 G2G (government to government)  serving apps and over 110 G2C (government to  Citizen ) and G2B (Government to Business) serving apps.

The services of the eMitra portal extend across the 33 rural and urban districts of the state of Rajasthan. The service delivery points of the portal Center and Kiosks, also known as Common Service Centres (CSC), are run on a Public-Private Partnership Model of Company Registration. The CSC eliminate the need for visiting the government centers, as they aggregate all the information and services under one roof. Also, See Partnership Registration.
