In order to provide efficient and transparent governance to the people at their doorsteps, Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today inaugurated the state's first 'Sewa Kendra' where people will be able to avail 243 services under one roof. “This is a step towards ensuring governance reforms in the state
“A total of 2,147 Sewa Kendras have been constructed at a cost of Rs 500 crore. Of these, 389 are in urban areas and 1,758 in rural areas which will provide more than 243 services to the people,” an official spokesperson said.The kendras will minimise public interaction with various offices and enhance efficiency of the administration and delivery of services to common people.
The Government of Punjab is setting up ‘Sewa Kendras’ kiosks in villages across the state to reach out to common man and enable easy and direct communication with them.
Common Service Centre (CSC) or Sewa Kendras is one of the core ICT enabled Initiatives of the Government of India (GoI) under its National E-Governance Plan. The Sewa Kendras scheme is predicted to be a bottom-up model for delivery of content, services, information and knowledge to people and organizations for achieving rapid socio-economic change in rural and urban areas of Punjab.
To make life more comfortable, Punjab State Government aims for establishing and operating 2174 rural CSCs under the state’s brand name ‘Gram Suwidha Kendra’ in rural, as well as urban areas by July 2015. These Sewa Kendras will be set up in 10 segregate zones to provide transparent, time-bound and affordable Government to Citizen (G2C) Services to the citizens Centres (CSCs) at the rate of one centre per a cluster of six villages.
More than 1500 e-sewa kendras in villages and municipal wards in urban areas has been started and is in full swing. Deputy Chief Minister Mr Sukhbir Singh Badal, who also holds Governance Reforms portfolio, has instructed all Deputy Commissioners to identify plots for construction of remaining new kiosks at the earliest and send consolidated monthly progress reports to governance reforms department. He said that the Punjab state e-Governance Society has been entrusted to accomplish and administer this prestigious project in the state.
After implementation of this service delivery mechanism across the state as envisioned by the Deputy CM, Punjab will be the first state in the country to provide all government to citizen (G2C) centric services online. “This online provisioning of citizen centric services would certainly minimize public contacts with various offices, eliminate corruption, and enhance efficiency of administration and delivery of services”, he said.
With the total number of 2174 e-sewa kendras to be set up in rural as well as urban areas, 1750 centres would be established in rural areas and 424 in urban areas to provide 249 public services effectively and efficiently. Sewa Kendras in rural areas would cater to cluster of three-four villages. This system will provide citizen centric services connected with various departments in an integrated manner across the counter under one roof.
With an aim to bring transparency in the system and establish citizen centric governance, the purpose of these e-sewa kendras besides collecting water and electricity bills would be to provide single window service for all citizen services including birth and death certificates, application of new power/water/sewerage connections, payment of property tax, request for various forms, license for Rickshaw, rehri, mule cart, slaughter house, atta chakki, issuance of NoC for commercial power, sanction of building plans, issuance of public certificates, issuance of NOC for fire safety, sweeping and lifting of garbage, request for spray and fogging, penalty for stray cattle etc.
This initiative by GoP will bring people and enterprises together to work in tandem with government policies.
