A technical snag in connectivity of the e-samparks resulted in the harassment of those who visited the centres across the city to get their work done on Monday.There are 15 e-sampark centres and 10 e-sampark kiosks in different parts of the city at present, offering around 24 different services to citizens such as payment of bills — electricity, water, telephone — railway ticket booking, payment of property tax and Aadhar enrollment etc.

The work remained suspended throughout the day at most of the centres and a large number of people were seen waiting for resumption of work while standing in long queues.

The Society for Promotion of IT in Chandigarh (SPIC) is responsible for running the e-smaprak centres in the city. SPIC head Anil Prashar said that work at most of the centres remained suspended throughout the day due to connectivity issue. “We have lodged a complaint with the service provider, Himachal Futuristic Communications Ltd (HFCL), and connectivity will be up by Tuesday,” said Prashar.

The outcome of the assembly bypolls held in neighbouring Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh has come as a blow to a buoyed up BJP that is harbouring dreams of forming next government in Haryana. In the BJP-ruled Rajasthan, the saffron party could win only one seat out of four and in Uttar Pradesh it could only win three out of 11 assembly seats.
