Quite surprising but evidently a good news for Indian Citizens. Indian government has launched a web service (not exactly a website) for the commoners to get appointments with the Government officers of different departments. Myvisit.gov.in lets you get an appointment with government officer via a simple and smooth process. A Digital Initiative by Government of India, aims to simplify pre-communication procedure between citizens and government and also between different departments of the government both state and central.
National Informatics Centre (NIC), the developer says it’s a cloud based application software which can be easily implemented in different government offices or buildings with minimum customization. The software application saves and maintains all the data given by users who register for appointment, also the application is integrated with visitors’ Aadhar cards.
The user interface is pretty good and enhances user experience. Homepage contains all necessary details relevant to the services Myvisit.gov.in provides. Internet users will not find it complicated at all. Though the application enables user to get appointment for the departments of state and central government but currently, it contains data related to central government departments only. Officers and departments can provide details by registering themselves through the application. Yes, you can’t get appointment there for state government departments now. The application also maintains and shows statistics through a dashboard for number of departments, number of officers, and number of visitors and so on.
Such initiatives by the Government should be welcomed and the best part of this application is that it is not only for union government, state departments/ministries/officers too can register themselves and make it simpler for masses to get appointment. There still exist many domains where governmental procedures can be simplified, recorded and maintained, Myvisit.gov.in is just another example which expresses that India is on its way to become ‘Digital India’.
P.S. Though the application seems decent but users haven’t rated it good, perhaps there is some shortfall which only a genuine user can notify.
