57 standardised documents readied for issuing certificates at facilitation centres

In an effort to streamline the system for issuing certificates, the district administration has readied 57 standardised documents that will ease burden on citizens at facilitation centres.

District Collector Vikas Deshmukh on Tuesday said they have readied the documents and will forward them to the government for the approval. He said these documents will be in additional to the 16 documents that are already being issued at Citizen's Facilitation Centres. "These documents will be for various purposes and we have also suggested that a checklist of documents to be submitted is displayed for the convenience of citizens," said Deshmukh.

Deshmukh said the meeting was held on the issue and the government's decision on the standardisation of these documents is awaited.

'Submit bank account details to avail kerosene subsidy'

IN a bid to facilitate subsidy transfer scheme for kerosene, the district administration has issued orders to beneficiaries to submit bank account details to fair price shops. No kerosene if no account will be the formula the administration will be working on to speed up the subsidy transfer scheme.

District Collector Vikas Deshmukh said the bank linking details did not give out the exact figures of the beneficiaries as the district administration already had a large amount of financial inclusion programmes.

"Though figures showed only 23 per cent beneficiaries, the figures are faulty and I have issued orders that within a week there should be efforts to find out the actual figures. I have already talked to the bank to find out the number of holders,'' said Deshmukh.

He said one member from a family should be having a bank account but there are some cases where there are joint account holders. Those in the BPL category and SC/ST can open an account with zero balance. These details will help the district administration to work out the gas subsidy programme as well, he said.
