Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar will launch 19 e-services, biometric attendance at civil secretariats, linking of Aadhaar with birth registration and e-stamping for property registration on May 2.

The state government, which is targeting implementation of 150 e-services by March 2016, will start 19 e-services such as caste certificates and marriage certificates next month. "The citizens will be able to access these services through the common service centres (CSCs) being established across the state," according to principal secretary, electronics and information technology, Devender Singh.

While 631 CSCs are already operational, the department is hoping to take their number to 2,500 centres in a year. "The ultimate aim is to have mobile apps to make these services accessible through smart phones in an assisted delivery mode," he said.

Besides the state portal, Khattar will also launch the Aadhaar-based biometric attendance system at the state civil secretariat at Chandigarh the same day.

The attendance system connected with an attendance portal to keep a real-time tab on attendance record of officers and other employees is being installed at the state's two civil secretariats at Chandigarh, mini secretariats in all districts, two engineering departments and Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) in the first phase.

The linking of Aadhaar with birth registration will also be launched by the chief minister on May 2. Another facility to be launched by the CM is e-stamping for property registration the same day to provide a citizen-centric and secure way of paying non-judicial stamp duty to the state government in place of the traditional stamp papers issued by the banks or the government treasury.

The citizens will be able to make payment using their credit or debit cards through an online banking gateway and generate stamp paper electricity.
