Online tax payment in panchayats

Online property tax payment facility will be introduced in grama panchayats from April 1, Governor P. Sathasivam has said.

The Governor, in his maiden address to the Assembly on Friday, said that certificates on births, deaths, and marriages registered from 1970 in local self-government institutions will also be issued online.

The Kudumbasree mission would start anti-human trafficking centres in Idukki, Palakkad, and Wayanad.

The Suchitwa mission would provide sanitary facility for all rural and urban households within three years.

State Plan fund, own fund, Plan fund of local self-government institutions, and Swachh Bharat Mission funds would be tapped to implement sanitation and waste management projects.

A special scheme would be launched for completing the houses of Scheduled Castes and Tribes that have been left incomplete in the previous years.

Digitised documentation of the assets created in the annual Plan would be introduced to avoid duplication of identical schemes by different agencies and effective targeting of scarce budgetary funds.

A Jawahar Housing Scheme would be implemented in each local body division where one house would be constructed using the Plan funds of local bodies. Priority would be given to housing schemes with the help of local bodies, other institutions, and social organisations.

LED lighting would be introduced in all urban local bodies under the Nagarajyothi project.

Septage treatment plants would be constructed in districts, the Governor said.
