The State Government of Karnataka, India, will open 1,000 tele-centres across the state like the Bangalore One citizen service centres to enable people to pay their bills and access other services under one roof.
The State’s e-Governance Secretary, Rajiv Chawla, said people in other parts of the State would also be able to pay their bills, buy bus passes, check land records and access 38 services of the Revenue Department through kiosks at the tele-centres. The Government planned to open one kiosk in each hobli, he said. One of the highlights of the tele-centres would be that people could lodge a police complaint from there. Citizens would be able to purchase railways tickets through Bangalore One centres shortly. He said that the Government also proposed to launch airline ticket booking through the centres and talks were on with Kingfisher Airlines, Air Deccan and Indian for introducing the service. Vipin Singh, Director, Bangalore One, said 1,000 Bangalore One counters would come up in the next two months.
