In a fresh e-Governance initiative, the Uttarakhand government has launched SMS GPF services to help state government employees track status of their General Provident Fund (GPF) accounts at the click of a mouse. The facility of obtaining GPF information through SMS would benefit around one lakh state government employees of Uttarakhand.

Dehradun: In a fresh e-Governance initiative, the Uttarakhand government has launched SMS GPF services to help state government employees track status of their General Provident Fund (GPF) accounts at the click of a mouse.

With this, Uttarakhand has become the second state to offer these services after Tamil Nadu. This facility has been jointly launched by the Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General and National Informatics Centre (NIC).

The facility of obtaining GPF information through SMS would benefit around one lakh state government employees of Uttarakhand.

The employees can get details of the monthly deposit, monthly withdrawal, yearly status and opening and closing balance through this new facility.

For availing of the services, the state government employees would have to log on to website  and go inside the SMS menu where they can enter their GPF number and register themselves for obtaining the information. The updated information would then be sent to their mobile through the SMS.

According to Uttarakhand Auditor General Praveer Pandey, the SMS GPF services would bring about transparency in governance and enable the employees to know of their GPF accounts at the click of a mouse.

This is also the part of the government’s e- Governance initiative for better administration and employee satisfaction. Around 30,000 mobile numbers have already been registered for these services in the state.
