Nagarik App has been shortlisted for the World Summit Award 2022. The app is nominated under the Government and Citizens Engagement category. Besides the popular app, Cura Health and Veda are also on the shortlist under different categories for prestigious recognition.
The World Summit Award (WSA) is a nomination-based award system that promotes “local digital innovation improving society.” Winners of the award benefit from not a one-time monetary reward, but a “lifelong partnership and integration.”
Each country has a national WSA representation – the WSA National Expert. The expert handles local pre-selection for WSA through national contests or national Expert panel selection.
