|CM launches e-district services|
GUWAHATI, Sept 22 - Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today formally launched ‘SUGAM’ - Assam e-District Services from the Chief Minister’s conference room at Dispur.
With today’s launch 42 G2C citizen-centric services have been made electronically available through the State portal. These services henceforth can be applied for at the public facilitation centres (PFCs) set up at the offices of DCs, SDOs and circle officers in all districts, as well as at the common service centres (CSC). An added feature of SUGAM is that these services can also be availed by citizens at their homes through internet.
E-District is a mission mode project under NeGP for delivery of G2C services for citizens in their locality. It is envisaged that electronic delivery of citizen-centric services will ensure efficiency, transparency and reliability at affordable costs to the citizens.
Every service has a timeline for delivery and the citizens shall get acknowledgement of receipt and approval of application along with status of processing of application through SMS and e-mail.
The list of documents required to be submitted with the application for each service can be seen at the State portal (http://www.assam.gov.in). The list is also displayed at the PFCs.
State Additional Chief Secretary VS Bhaskar explained the objective of the project as part of the e-Governance initiatives of the government in presence of the Chief Minister, the Chief Secretary, Cabinet Ministers and other senior government officials, said a press release.
