Ujjwal is a unqiue system implemented by CIDCO for knowledge enhancement of its officers. As a new system, it continues to evolve by learning from the experiences of all its users. Thus, it is essential that suggestions and questions are brought to the notice of the Ujjwal Training Cell.
Officers can use the Contact Training Cell page for this, or write to the Training Cell at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Training Cell is located within CIDCO Bhavan on the Second floor in the Planning Department.
