Without wasting their precious time and money, the public can now get all certificates being issued by tahsildars via the nearest common service centres as the district administration has successfully completed its ambitious project of ensuring e-governance in all 11 taluks.

As per this programme, the public should submit application for the certificates in the common service centre (CSC) close to their village and the personnel in the CSCs, established in taluk offices, town panchayat offices, block development offices and primary agriculture cooperative banks, would forward the application to the village administrative officer concerned. After verifying the facts furnished in the application, the VAO would forward it to the Revenue Inspector who, in turn, would send it to the taluk office. If the application is accepted, the certificate will be issued and sent to the CSC concerned from where the applicant can get it.

The e-governance programme, as a pilot project, was introduced in Radhapuram taluk on May 8, 2013 and the public were able to get the certificates being issued by the tahsildar such as community, income, resident, first graduate and destitute woman certificates through the common service centre without any delay or involvement of brokers. After Radhapuram taluk was successfully covered under this programme in the first phase, Nanguneri and Ambasamudram taluks were covered in the second phase.

After Tirunelveli, Veerakeralamputhur and Shencottah taluks were covered in the third phase, Tenkasi, Alangulam and Sivagiri taluks became ‘e-governance taluks’ on Tuesday and Palayamkottai and Sankarankovil taluks will attain this prestigious status on Wednesday to give cent per cent ‘e-governance district’ status to Tirunelveli.

Apart from issuing certificates through CSC, Collector M. Karunakaran has made arrangements for submitting applications for getting marriage assistance in the CSCs at block development offices of Tenkasi, Sankarankovil, Alangulam and Kadayanallur blocks. “Based on the outcome, it will be extended to other blocks also,” Dr. Karunakaran said.
