FACILITATION CENTRES will be set up in various parts of the City so that the residents would not have to visit the Collectorate to get certificates of various kinds.
Keeping this in view, Mayor Uma Shashi Sharma inaugurated the district’s third Build Operate and Transfer facilitation centre (Samadhan Kendra) at Palika Plaza complex on Friday.
Those present on the occasion included Divisional Commissioner Ashok Das, District Collector Vivek Aggarwal, Indore Development Authority Chairman Madhu Verma and MLAs Mahendra Hardia and Ashwin Joshi. Similar centres are operational at the Collectorate and in Sanver.
The Palika Plaza centre, mirroring the services of the Samadhan Kendra at the Collector’s office, will issue caste, domicile and income certificates besides receiving applications for registration of birth, death, marriage, Right to Information and arms licence renewal. Copies of Record of Rights (khasra, B1) will also be dispensed at the facility in addition to certificates that relate to Indore Municipal Corporation and Indore Development Authority. It will have notary facility as well.
In future, services like telephone and electricity bills, railway and air tickets and money transfer from abroad will also be linked, District Collector Vivek Aggarwal said.
A non-government organisation called Network for Information Computer Technology will run the centre. The next centres will open at Vijay Nagar, Depalpur and Mhow. The facilitation center at the Collectorate has issued 40,000 certificates till December 2006.
The centre inauguration began with computerised puja of Lord Ganesh as the Mayor pressed the button of wall-mounted kiosk. The software also played Ganesh Vandana.
