MAWKYRWAT: The District e-Governance Society (DeGS), South West Khasi Hills, in collaboration with the Meghalaya IT Department and National Informatics Centre has rolled out three additional citizen centric e-Services over and above the existing five e-Services under the ambitious e-District Project in a programme held at the Public Facilitation Centre (PFC) at the Deputy Commissioner’s office recently in Mawkyrwat.
The newly launched services include Registration of Society (ROS), Marriage Certificate (MC) and Senior Citizen Certificate (SCC).
Speaking on the occasion, DC Isawanda Laloo, who is also the Chairman DeGS, said that the newly launched services would help in furthering ICT initiatives in the Government Service Delivery process and would bring in more transparency and pace in the process.
She added that the district administration is encouraged by the success of the existing e-District services launched in May last year and is pleased to see that the public is benefiting from the services.
As per a statistic from the DM Dashboard (dashboard to monitor progress of various government schemes for the DM) of the district, till date more than 5500 ST certificates have been delivered to the citizens through the e-District Services, which is a notable number considering the number of households in the district which was only 16,809 (2011 Census).
The District Administration also officially notified that no manual application would be entertained for the newly launched services with effect from September 5 and all applications must be submitted online through various available modes viz. direct application by the applicant by visiting http://megedistrict.gov.in/, Online application through the nearest Common Service Centres (CSCs) or by visiting the PFC at the office of the Deputy Commissioner.
The programme was also attended by Woldis Biam, Additional DC, Rajib Bhattacharjee, DIA, NIC District Unit, B. War, e-District Manager and other stakeholders of e-District project.
