An ‘e-district’ programme has been launched in three firkas of Cheyyar taluk on a trial basis.
Launching the programme at Cheyyar on Saturday, Information Technology Minister Mukkur N. Subramanian said Chief Minister Jayalalithaa ordered the implementation of the programme in every district of the State.
“District e-governance society headed by Collector has been formed in Tiruvannamalai to implement the scheme. The programme is being introduced in Cheyyar, Vakkadai and Vadathandalam firkas of Cheyyar taluk,” Mr. Subramanian said.
“People in these three firkas need not go to taluk office to get income, community, first graduate and nativity certificates. Instead, they can go to Sahaj Computer Centre near their place with proofs and apply for the certificate online. They can get the certificate within stipulated time. The application would be sent to Village Administrative Officer, Revenue Inspector and Zonal Deputy Tahsildar concerned. Several other departments will also be brought under this scheme soon,” the Minister said.
Collector Vijay Pingale, Revenue Divisional Officer K. Priya and Joint Registrar of Cooperative Societies S.Thiruguna Iyappadurai were present.
