Unified Mobile Application for New-age Governance app or UMANG app is an app developed by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) and National e-Governance Division (NeGD)
to drive mobile governance in India. It provides a single platform for citizens to access pan India e-Gov services ranging from central to local government bodies and other citizen-centric services.
UMANG provides seamless integration with popular customer-centric services like Aadhaar and Digilocker. You can download the app and register using a one-time password (OTP) method. The OTP will be sent to the mobile number registered with the app. A user will have to set a 4-digit numeric MPIN code to protect the account against unauthorised access. Subscribers have to choose two security questions, which can be used to recover your account from the app if you lose access to your account or forget its PIN.
After security questions, users need to fill their personal information, and then it will prompt the user to link their Aadhaar. Users can avail these provident funds (PF) services on Umang. EPFO subscribers can view their passbook; raise a claim for pension withdrawal, part withdrawal, and final settlement.
Users can also track the status of claims already submitted. However, only the passbook facility can be accessed if you don’t link your Aadhaar with your PF account. Umang app does not allow raising transfer requests from one EPF account to your latest EPF account.
