This initiative from Chandigarh Administration enables the citizens
to access information on a whole range of e-Sampark services
from their mobile phones by simply sending an SMS.
To avail the m-Sampark services, all that a citizen required
to do is to SMS "SMENU" to 58888. A menu of services
available will be sent back to him via an SMS, from where
he/she can get the required information.
The basic idea behind launching the m- Sampark service was
to ensure that the citizen can get information about e-Sampark
services from all possible information access mechanisms.
With the wide reach of cellular phone, it is really convenient
for the citizens to know of the different services through
their cellular phones in absence of internet connectivity.
The services provided through m-Sampark currently are :
Get the Electricity / Water bill details
Get the address of the Sampark Centres across the city.
Get a list of the services provided by Sampark Centres
Get a list of all the documents accepted for age proof
and residence proof.
