Its official website is csc.gov.in, through which you can get any document online. Today in this article, we will discuss it.
Digital Seva Portal provides various electronic governance and business services through digital mediums to the rural and remote citizens of the country. It is a pan-India network that reflects regional, geographical, linguistic, and cultural diversity. It also empowers society socially, economically, and digitally. CSCs provide citizens with improved governance, social services, financial services, education and training courses, health and agriculture services, digital literacy, B2C services, and access to e-services.

Banking and Pension Services
A major cause of backwardness in rural areas is the lack of digital financial literacy. Digital Seva launched a digital financial service to support India’s cashless economy by registering 100 lakh citizens and enabling 25 lakh small businesses under this program.
