Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a new mobile app UMANG on November 23rd 2017. Unified Mobile Application for New-Age Governance also called UMANG, will allow you and other citizens to access all Government services on a single platform. This app will help you access services like Aadhaar, Digilocker and even Bharat Bill Payment System through the newly launched UMANG app.
Aadhaar is the World's largest biometric ID system. Aadhaar is a 12 digit unique-identity number, which has been issued to you and all resident citizens of our country. You have to link Aadhaar to bank accounts, Aadhaar to PAN, Aadhaar to insurance plans, Aadhaar to mutual funds, Aadhaar to LPG and even Aadhaar to your mobile number within given deadlines.
Digilocker is a unique online storage facility provided by the Modi Government. You can upload documents like Voter ID card, PAN, Driving license and even education certificates. All these documents will be linked to Aadhaar. Under Bharat Bill Payment System, details of all bills issued by utility services such as electricity, water, gas, telephone, DTH and insurers are collected at one place.
