  • One-stop solution: The Resident portal is designed to have components that aims to solve all the queries, issues, or discrepancies of the residents and acts as a one-stop solution for all the requirements.
  • Self-Sovereign: Once the ID is issued by an authority, the user/resident/citizen chooses to control and manage their data in their choice of devices.
  • Inclusive: The Resident portal aims to be available in all the browsers while also catering to the needs of visually impaired, dyslexic and colour-blind folks.
  • Presence assurance: This web-based UI application would put in all its efforts to ensure easy access to all the residents with high availability.
  • Works Remote: The Resident portal should be able to share credentials when data needs to be shared remotely without physical presence.
  • Trusted: The identity verification process on the device should be trusted so that it can be used in service delivery without any concerns.
  • Grievance redressal: The Resident portal ensures that in case of any concerns or grievance, the issue is raised and resolved through the portal itself.
