Ajit Balaji Joshi who took charge as the deputy commissioner on Friday launched four new services under its e-district initiative.

All these services — publication of daily cause list of three sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) courts, status and copy of final order, issuing of legal heir certificate and request for redressing grievances — will be available through the Sampark centres, while the status of court cases and final orders will also be made available online on the website

Under this initiative, officials of the SDM and assistant estate officer (AEO) courts will start keying in upcoming cases into the software. Residents will be able to get a print out of the daily cause list, status of cases and copy of the final order of the judgment. Also, the existing application for putting up grievances has been revamped.

Commenting on it, Ajit Balaji Joshi said: “It is heartening to know that Chandigarh has started the electronic delivery of services. In future, too, our endeavour will be to cover more services of the district administration under the electronic mode. Emphasis will be on ensuring transparency in service delivery and bringing satisfaction to the residents.”

Information technology secretary SB Deepak Kumar and additional deputy commissioner Kashish Mittal were also present on the occasion. The e-district initiative is being undertaken by the department of information technology. The National Informatics Centre is the implementing agency. About 35 services have been planned to be launched under this project.

Ajit Balaji Joshi on Friday took over as the deputy commissioner of Chandigarh. A 2003-batch Haryana-cadre IAS officer, Joshi has replaced Mohammad Shayin, who was repatriated to Haryana on April 28.

The appointments committee of the cabinet (ACC) at the Centre had approved Joshi’s inter-cadre deputation to AGMUT on October 7. He was earlier posted as the deputy commissioner at Jind.

On his first day at work, Joshi said that he would ensure proper implementation of government schemes.
