Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday launched the Mo Sarkar programme in the Revenue and Disaster Management Department and asked the officials to respect dignity of the people visiting Government offices.
With this, all the Tehsils and Registration Offices which provide more than 70 lakh public services to citizens now came under the Mo Sarkar initiative.
“Tehsils and Registration Offices are the heart and soul of rural administration. They must be seen as efficient, accountable and responsive to the needs of people. Keeping this transformative vision in mind, I had launched issuance of E-Certificates programme through E-District Portal in December last year under 5-T initiatives. Registration Offices will be on the focus of Mo Sarkar Programme,” Patnaik told.
He further said, “I am glad that through the new portal, more than two lakh citizens have applied for various certificates and 1.35 lakh citizens have received their certificates without visiting any Government offices. The Revenue and Disaster Management Department is way ahead in adopting 5- T initiatives and perfectly ready to embrace Mo Sarkar. The State Government has abolished all types of fees for obtaining miscellaneous and caste certificates. This will directly benefit around 50 lakh citizens, including students, who apply for various certificates annually.”
Under the e-PAUTI Portal, citizens have already paid land revenue online in respect of 1.4 lakh Khatiyans. In all mutation cases, updated RoR is delivered at the doorstep of citizens through speed post. Registered deeds are also delivered to citizens at their doorstep through speed post based on consent, Patnaik said, adding, “I am happy that, the citizens are now getting registered deeds on the same day of registration.”
Revenue Minister Sudam Marndi said the department is fully prepared and committed to fulfil the obligations of Mo Sarkar.
5T Secretary VK Pandian interacted with Tehsildars of Athagarh, Karanjia, Champua and Jharsuguda and Sub-Registrars of Bhanjanagar and Kamakhyanagar on conceptual clarity on Mo Sarkar.
