Technology is the only way we can scale governance and fulfil the aspirations of our young population and we are proud to state that in Maharashtra we have a dedicated portal ‘Aaple Sarkar’ through which more than 400 online services are being provided.In line with that the Aaple Sarkar Chatbot is another positive step to provide solutions to the queries of public through conversations. With the help of AI, this conversational facility is definitely going to significantly improve the public service frameworks.With the launch of this chatbot, the State Government endeavoured to provide complete range of services to the people in more efficient manner.
