extending the application of IT for the benefit of the common
man. After the successful launch of the Sampark Centres and
in the second phase of the e-Governance initiative, the Administration
has identified to provide the information about services of
various departments and also to provide information and facilitation
to residents regarding private services and other Government
of India services from the 70 e-Jan Sampark kiosks which are
to be set up in each sector and each village of Chandigarh.
The e-Jan Sampark project will enable residents to access information
and avail of services from the kiosks with ease, and without
any harassment. These Centres will also enable the citizen to
submit their grievances at a common centre and their quick redressal

a citizen and to deliver useful non transactional services

Jan Sampark Vision
- Bring the administration closer to all the sections of
the society especially under privileged.
