CISF is trying to enhance the workflow and efficiency of all stakeholders by focusing on the government's Digital India scheme. The digitisation process is carried out to create a user-friendly mobile platform for the officials as well as the passengers.

According to an Economic Times report, there has been no fundraising for the digitisation process as the complete platform was built by the in-house information technology (IT) team. The IT team digitally programmed the internal processes for employees such as the leave applications, salary, inventory management, grievance redressal system.
