Delhiites will soon be able to get documents including birth certificates or RC of vehicles at their doorsteps, by spending an extra Rs 50 only . Delhi Government is planning to deploy specialised representatives, who will be given responsibility to collect the required documents from the people and who will also deliver the same after the certificate is approved. Applicants will also have the option through a mobile app or by calling Delhi Government’s helpline numbers – this service is likely to be launched in three months, as per Hindustan Times report.
Speaking to the paper, Delhi Minister for administrative reforms Kailash Gahlot said that the proposal has been put before different departments in last two months. He further said that the project will first run on a pilot basis for services such as birth certificate, income certificate, RC of vehicles, OBC/SC/ST certificate among others. This project will be kickstarted from revenue and transport departments, with Delhiites not have to visit offices of the sub-divisional magistrates (SDMs) or motor licensing inspectors anymore for these issues, it added.
As of now, applicants are needed to visit the district office for verification of documents. The Delhi Government also found that even while the process of application is online, people still visit the SDM’s office for their work, Hindustan Times said. The project which has been titled “Doorstep delivery of public services through mobile CSC”, was the idea of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, which will be put up before the cabinet for the discussion soon, the paper added.
