The existing 5,600 Mee Seva centres in the State that offer IT-enabled services by issuing a variety of documents/certificates against applications received from people, achieved a milestone by successfully completing one crore transactions at 11 a.m. on Wednesday.
Mee Seva centres, which were launched on November 4, 2011 in Chittoor district as an experiment and extended later to other districts, are now delivering 42 services/issuing documents relating to various departments, mainly Revenue, Home, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation, Municipal Administration etc.
These centres will handle 16 more services, taking the total to 58 on Friday, when 400 more centres will begin to function. Five of the new services would be from the Revenue Department, four each from Home and Civil Supplies and three from the Municipal Administration.
Marking the achievement, Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy will inaugurate a digital display board at the main gate of the Secretariat on Friday to indicate a minute-to-minute increase in the number of transactions handled, before formally launching other services at Jubilee Hall. Incidentally, this display board comes close to the one installed a little away by Telugu Desam regime to provide information about the welfare benefits offered to the poor at that time.
Information Technology Minister Ponnala Lakshmaiah said all Mee Seva centres would be able to handle one lakh applications daily. Out of 1.42 crore applications received since 2011, only 3.8 lakh were declared invalid as the services for which they were submitted, were unavailable under Mee Seva.
