Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy on Thursday agreed to the request made by the Centre to share the framework of Mee Seva, a scheme to provide electronic access to government services, with other states.

The government is offering close to 50 services under Mee Seva. It is planning to increase the same to 100 in two-three months. Services like issuance of birth, caste and income certificates are being carried out electronically through over 4,000 kiosks across the state. Over 60,000 citizens are touched every day through this.

“Since its launch a year ago, Mee Seva has evolved as a matured platform with various technological and transformational elements embedded into it. There is no reason why it cannot be replicated in other states with minute changes and customisation. I request the CM to consider making this available to the entire country,” J Satyanarayana, secretary, department of electronics and IT, GoI, said at the e-India summit.
