Haryana Government is pleased to notify this scheme on 08-01-2014 for establishment and roll-out the CSCs under the name and style of “Haryana e-Seva” throughout the state of Haryana following a Private Entrepreneurship Business Model, in line with the approach envisaged by Government of India.
A convergence model has been envisaged wherein the CSC is authorized to transact businesses and deliver a rich basket of relevant services to the citizens from multiple government departments/ enterprises/ agencies besides the private and financial sectors. This convergence is sought to be achieved by clubbing the following categories of services:-

The IT Department has developed an in-house application platform known as the “Integrated Village Information & Service Delivery System” (referred to as IVISS hereinafter), which is an enabling platform to bring about such technology and operational convergence, with a facility to accept all government and non-Government payments at the CSC.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been entered with CSC-SPV India Limited, a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) formed under the Department of Information Technology, Government of India, for providing B2C Services like mobile phone bills and top-ups, PAN card, Voter card for delivery through the CSCs.
