Staff Selection Commission has taken a major leap forward in dispensing their services through the UMANG mobile application. Earlier this week, the Commission issued an official notice to announce that specific services of SSC can now be availed by users through the application. Evidently, the decision comes as a huge step forward by the government recruitment agency in the direction of adopting information technology to deliver their services. SSC now joins a range of other e-governance services that can be availed by citizens in the comfort of their homes. Excerpt from the public notice issued at the official website ssc.nic.in is represented here.
Considering the impending boom of internet technology and smart device penetration expected in the foreseeable future, the initiative of the SSC is one to be applauded for diverse reasons. The Commission has decided to dispense multiple modules through the UMANG application. Users can now access all important news and services delivered by the SSC at the touch of a button. Besides the mobile application, one can also avail services of the UMANG platform through the official website of the application, SMS, and even IVR. This means that feature phone users may also be able to avail the services using SMS and IVR.
SSC has indicated the modules that are currently made available through the platform. These include SSC news, notices, results, exam calendar, and vacancies. Thus, users can now expect to access SSC’s latest news section on their mobile devices. Besides, one can also check all upcoming exams through the exam calendar module. Users can now get all SSC exam notices from the UMANG application. In addition, one can also check SSC results and learn about SSC vacancies through the application.
Unified Mobile Application for New-Age Governance (UMANG) is an e-governance application developed by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY). An android version of the application is available for download from Google Play Store free of cost. Similarly, iOS users can download the application from the iTunes App Store. The Commission has already indicated in the public notice that the services can be availed by both Android and iOS users. With this, SSC has now joined in the footsteps of various other government departments that dispense services through the mobile application and its website. Notably, the UMANG app was originally launched to fulfill the government’s digitalization visions. One can access 643 pan-India e-governance services dispensed by 117 government departments through this application.
