With a view to providing citizen-centric facilities to people living in rural areas, the Haryana government has decided to set up Common Service Centres (CSC) in two villages of Kurukshetra district, said YS Malik, principal secretary, electronics and information technology. Malik said the state government was implementing the CSC project as a mission-mode project to link the facilities being provided to people with e-governance plan started under the information technology department of the central government.

He said Barwala of Panchkula and villages of Ambala, Kurukshetra and Kaithal districts would be included in this project on pilot basis. He said the district administration would provide e-services through district e-governance society. He said an entrepreneur would be appointed at village level by the district administration for smooth functioning of this system in rural areas. He said the CSC centre would work as per the policies of the state government to provide various facilities to the people.

The CSC would offer facilities such as registration of birth, issuance of birth certificate, registration of child's name, registration of death, issuance of death certificate and issuance of non-availability certificate in case of loss of record of birth and death. Also, services related to the district revenue department such as issuance of caste certificate, domicile certificate and income certificate will be provided.
