Fees for Availing Services through Digital Seva Setu Website
All the citizens will have to pay a nominal fee of Rs 20 for each service, a part of which will go to the village panchayat. The initiative is the digital avatar of the “Seva Setu” programme which was started by Rupani in 2016. In this initiative, a cluster of 8 to 10 villages was formed and a team of officers administered the programme-related camp of a particular cluster.
Official Launch of Digital Seva Setu Programme
On 8 October 2020, the Digital Seva Setu Programme was launched in 2,700 villages.

By December 2020, around 8,000 village panchayats were provided with high speed internet service. As of 23 March 2023, around 9715 village panchayats are provided with high speed internet services. CMO Gujarat had officially made a tweet regarding the launch of phase 1 of the programme on its official twitter handler.
