These days even small towns have access to web-based payments through e-Seva in the southern Indian state Andhra Pradesh, but Gaddiannaram and the 11 municipalities, all around the State capital Hyderabad have no e-Seva.
Gaddiannaram village panchayat with a 55,000 population was upgraded to a municipality in 2001. There were about 11,000 houses and 21 wards. The population had doubled now and many educational institutions and business establishments have come up. According to Gaddiannaram Municipal Commissioner M Ravi Kumar, there is a problem in software for which providing e-Seva is not possible. The problem is expected to be solved by next month.
