Arunachal Pradesh in the month of March 2013 became the first state to introduce e-GPF or electronic GPF.
The state Finance Department facilitated the online access to 34000 GPF accounts through its redesigned Web site, which was launched by Chief Minister of Arunachal Pardesh Nabam Tuki.
Features of the websites
• The Web site is meant to help the public in accessing all updated fiscal information including 34000 GPF accounts besides pensioners, who from anywhere in India could get information on their hard earned pension and fastest disposal of RTI cases.
• The Web site www.arunachalfinance.in has a number of features to make it citizen-friendly and to bring in more transparency and accountability in respect of works in the Finance Department.
• With all the information available on the Web site, citizens as well as government employees would not need to visit the Finance office for each and every work. Also, he felt applications seeking information under RTI would come down as all information needed are available on the site.
The Web site is developed by the department with technical assistance from NIC. It is interactive with facilities to download forms such as medical reimbursement, GPF Final Payment, which would be quite beneficial for Government employees, particularly pensioners.
