The Directorate General Defence Estates (DGDE), Ministry of Defence and eGov Foundation has inked an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for Online Management of Cantonment Boards. Both entities will work together to drive e-governance and enhance citizen services across all cantonment boards in the country. These services will be delivered under a cloud-based platform DIGIT (Digital Infrastructure for Governance, Impact & Transformation). These services will be provided under the program named e-Chhawani.
All the services will be provided through India’s Largest Open Source Platform for Urban Governance i.e. DIGIT. This platform includes Dashboards, Web Portals, Miscellaneous Collection, Trade License, Fire NoC system, Public Grievance Redressal System, Property Tax, Water & Sewerage Charges, Online Building Permission System & Finance & Accounting System.
