commerce ministryAs a step towards realization of Modi’s Digital India campaign, the Commerce Ministry has planned to build freely downloadable mobile applications for its stakeholders. This will enable the stakeholders to access information in real-time through notifications on their smartphones. A committee is formed to finalize the technical aspects of it.

Mobile applications will be developed for the Directorate General of Foreign Trade, the Directorate General of Supplies and Disposal (DGS&D), Special Economic Zones (SEZs), Tea Board, Coffee Board and Spices Board. Ministry’s export promotion councils will also receive apps. More likely, private players will be responsible for building the applications.
