DHARAMSHALA, Mar. 3: The Finance wing of the Central Tibetan Administration known also as the Tibetan government-in-exile, launched a pilot project for Tibetans in North America to enable Green Book contributions online. The process includes filling up a Google form to ensure a mapping between your email ID, birth date and GB number.
The pilot project has been launched in North America as of now, and will gradually expand to other regions if it proves successful.
An active Gmail address of the user is a must for the Chatrel Online registration through Mobile Apps or websites. The project hopes for a smooth authentication process by ensuring secured online payment services. The Department of Finance in coordination with the Office of Tibet in North America has reached out to Tibetans virtually on Jan. 24 to discuss the project’s criteria.
The Head of the Tibetan Computer Resource Centre and GB volunteers from 32 Tibetan associations attended the virtual meeting. The Department has received around 400 Gmail registrations from Tibetans residing in North America so far, and through an announcement online, urged more Tibetans to participate and submit their Gmail addresses to ensure efficient online contribution.
