The Andhra government intends to make available 100 services under Mee Seva in the next three months
Hyderabad: Andhra Pradesh’s e-Governance initiative Mee Seva, aimed to provide certificates and documents issued by various government departments to the citizens across the counter, will have a century of services in its kitty in the next three months.
Stating this, the State Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy said Mee Seva which was launched on November 4,2011 with just 12 services has recently crossed one crore transaction marks and now extends 58 services in all districts.
He was speaking after launching 16 new services here making the total services available from 42 to 58.
“The system is intended to bring in transparency and check middlemen. An online application for certificates/documents like caste, income, registration etc., will be issued within 15 minutes. The biggest advantage is that it will save common people anywhere between Rs 4, 000 crore to Rs 6, 000 crore that may have gone to middlemen to get these documents in the conventional system,” he said.
The government also mulls bringing out legislation to pay penalty to the applicant if a certificate sought from a ‘Mee Seva’ centre is not delivered within the stipulated time. This will bring in accountability into the system, he added
The certificates are digitally signed, legally valid and weed out fake documents. Importantly, the system will help eliminate land disputes as it will not allow multiple registrations for the same land.
