As a part of e-Governance project, the online system of filing petitions has launched in Krishnagiri, Tamil Nadu (
It would be the first online system of filing petitions in the state. Santhosh Babu, Collector of State has developed the system through the help of National Informatics Centre (NIC) and launched the system at the Collectorate and village panchayats of Mookandapalli and Poonapalli in Hosur.
More than 600 petitions were registered on the first day. Villagers can file their petitions through panchayat kiosk or from home by logging on to www.krishnagiri.tn.nic.in/gdponline. Each petition has a separate Grievance Code Number, which will show the status of that particular petition. Even people can check the status of their petitions by calling on the toll free number to be provided in upcoming call centre in Hosur.
The Collector will monitor on the status and the number of the petitions pending with each department. The main of the scheme is to reduce interaction between people and government offices, and maximise interaction between people and Government. Out of 337 panchayats in the district, computers have been provided to 110 panchayats.
