The Kejriwal government in Delhi will provide as many as 100 public services, including birth certificate, caste certificate, driving licence, ration card, at people's doorstep from next month at an extra fee of only Rs 50.
During a Cabinet meeting, the Delhi government approved administrative reforms department's proposal to charge a "facilitation fee" of Rs 50 from the citizens for "each successful transaction".
Under the doorstep delivery of services to be launched in August, the Aam Aadmi Party government will provide around 100 public services of its various departments at the doorstep of Delhi's citizens.
After the launch, people of Delhi would not have to stand in long queues for the services listed under the scheme.
The government will hire Mobile Sahayaks (facilitators) through an intermediary agency and set up call centres to assist people.
Under the scheme, various certificates such as caste, domicile, marriage registration, income, driving license, new water connection, ration card, duplicate RC and change of address in RC, among others, will be delivered at the doorstep of Delhi's citizens.
If a person wants to apply for a driving license, he or she would have to call a designated call centre and give the details. Thereafter, the agency would assign a Mobile Sahayak, who will visit the applicant's residence and get the required details and documents.
However, the applicant will have to visit the MLO office once for a driving test.
