A draft policy on mobile platform is ready and would be studied by the core group on e-governance which would finalise it, Karnataka IT, BT, Science and Technology and e-Governance Secretary, M N Vidyashankar said.

"Whatever services you are today getting through (state-run) Bangalore One (citizen service centres), we will be able to launch these services on mobile platform", he told PTI here. "All applications currently running on Bangalore One, it will be enabled on mobile phone", he said.

Lakhs of residents pay their bills such as water, electricity and telephone and avail various services at 79 B1 centres in the city every day, according to Vidyashankar. Once the core group comprising those from the industry and Government experts, chaired by Director of International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore, Prof S Sadagopan, clears the policy after fine-tuning it, it would be taken to the State Cabinet for approval, he said.
