Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy today said the territorial government has taken steps to intensify efforts to introduce e-governance system in keeping with the Centre’s directives.
Launching a new website of the District Collectorate of Puducherry, ‘collectorate.py.gov.in’ here, he said the Centre had asked Puducherry government to earmark three per cent of the budget allocation for e-governance facility, which was being adhered to.
He said, very soon common service centres would be opened in Puducherry, Villianoor, Bahoor and Tirukanoor to enable the residents to obtain all certificates online without approaching the departments concerned.
The website launched would cater to all the requirements of documents, encumbrance certificates, land records and other details relating to properties.
He advised government employees to be punctual at their workplaces and warned that if any of them were found coming late to the office, they would be dismissed.
Later, Narayanasamy handed over appointment orders to around 130 candidates recruited on contract basis under the National Rural Health Mission, to work in suburban and rural areas.
Revenue Minister M O H F Shah Jahan, Health Minister Malladi Krishna Rao and District Collector Satyendra Singh Dursawat were among those present.
