Jaitley launches mobile-friendly upgraded webpage of Finance Ministry


As part of the Digital India Programme, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Friday launched a common landing webpage of the Ministry of Finance to offer single point access to all the websites of the five different departments under the Ministry.

The Finance Minister also launched the new website of the Department of Expenditure.

With diversification of the ICT landscape, it has become absolutely imperative for the government websites to bring in qualitative and quantitative transformations owing to changing user expectations.

The revamp of the webpage of the Ministry of Finance and the new website of the Department of Expenditure is, therefore, a major step towards standardisation and improvement in presentation and content delivery using the Content Management Framework (CMF).

The new website is supported across all platforms, including Android, Windows, and iOS. The website also has a host of features such as in-built search options, enablement of text to speech, language translation and visitor analytics, among others.
