There's good news for Delhi people as Arvind Kejriwal, CM of Delhi on Friday has announced something good which will work in the favour of people. The people living in the capital will now get door-to-door delivery of various government services, which includes driving licence, marriage certificate and ration cards from 10th September onwards. The chief minister took to Twitter to make this announcement and termed it as “revolution in governance” which would be “big blow to corruption”.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government had come up with this idea earlier this year but had blamed Lieutenant Governor (LG) Anil Baijal for stalling it. However, a five-judge Constitution Bench had on 4th July laid down broad parameters for the governance of the national capital, which further got the green signal to proceed with the scheme.
Here's what Arvind Kejriwal tweeted.
"Doorstep delivery of services. A revolution in governance. A big blow to corruption. Super convenience for people. Happening for the first time anywhere in the world. Starts from 10th Sept (sic)"
According to the plan, the AAP government will be providing around 100 services such as caste certificate, driving licence, ration card at the doorstep of people making their life much more easier, especially for the senior citizens. However, a nominal charge of Rs. 50 will be taken for these services.
The government of Delhi has claimed that the commoners will now no longer have to stand in the long queues for the services listed under the scheme.
As per the plan, Mobile Sahayaks (facilitators) will be hired through the agency that would set up call centres.
Caste, new water connection, income, driving licence, ration card, domicile, marriage registration, duplicate RC and change of address in RC, among others, among other certificates will be covered under the scheme.
In November last year, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had said that the Mobile Sahayak would be equipped with all necessary equipment such as biometric devices and a camera, adding that for doorstep delivery of services, the applicant would be charged a nominal fee.
