Today the mobile penetration has increased tremendously in the country. Governments have now started to focus on m-Governance. We have developed a mobile based application under Home Ministry for border areas. It is a very successful project as it includes around 5,000 schemes varying from small to medium which are directed by the Home Ministry. It is replicated by the Government of India and can be used in the other border states of the country.
