The Umang app is currently offering 220 services from 55 departments in 11 states.
Accessing financial information just got easier for CRPF employees. Now through the Umang App, CRPF employees can obtain salary details, GPF (General Provident Fund) details, and avail other related services easily, according to the Minister of Electronics and Information Technology, Ravi Shankar Prasad.
The App offers 220 services from 55 departments in 11 states, mentioned the minister’s tweet. Umang—short for Unified Mobile Application for New-age Governance— is an app which facilitates government services. The app can be easily downloaded on Google Play, App Store and Windows Store and can be explored on multiple channels, such as smartphones, desktops and tablets. In fact, employees can access the link on the Employees’ Provident Fund Office (EPFO) website, https://web.umang.gov.in, which would also take the user to the app’s download page. Just as any other app, you will need to give it permissions to access your location, SMS and calls data for initialisation.
Published by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, the app is a common platform for several government services, such as gas booking, Aadhaar, crop insurance, EPF and National Pension System.
Umang will offer a host of services to the employees downloading the app to access personal information registered with CRPF, such as dependent, nomination, course, transfer, and punishment details.
Employees can gain access to their salary details and view or download their monthly salary slips, as well as General Provident Fund details for the last three financial years, all in PDF format.
Employees have the option to also check the contact numbers, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and addresses of officers availing this service. The department users can directly reach out to their unit head office to share their feedback by e-mail. They can also request for a change in their current data. The app helps EPFO subscribers access all services of the retirement fund body. Subscribers can raise provident fund (PF) claims via the Umang app, view their passbooks and also initiate an enquiry about their PF balance.
