The web portal located at www.nielit.in is colourful and pleasing to the eye, besides being GIGW (Guidelines for Indian Government Website) compliant. It boasts of several new features for supplementing the CSC (Common Service Centre) scheme; NIELIT accredited institutes have been mandated to provide G2C services to the citizens. With NIELIT accredited institutes also performing the task of CSC kiosks, there will be a vast improvement in the delivery of such services in the States.

It provides free online assessment test on employability and soft skills, in association with Wheebox.
