Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday launched ‘Mo Sarkar’ programme in the Revenue and Disaster Management Department at Lok Seva Bhavan here.
Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Minister said all the tehsils and Registration offices, which provide more than 70 lakh public services to the citizens are covered under this 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 the issuance of e-certificates programme through the e-District portal in December last year under 5-T initiative. I am glad that through the new portal, more than 2 lakh citizens have applied for various certificates and 1.35 lakh citizens have received their certificates without visiting any government office,” the Chief Minister said, adding that the portal will directly benefit around 50 lakh citizens including students, who apply for various certificates annually.
He also said that through the e-PAUTI portal, the people have already paid land revenue online in respect of 1.4 lakh Khatiyans while in all mutation cases, the updated record of rights (RoR) is delivered at the doorstep of the citizens through Speed Post. Besides, registered deeds are also delivered to citizens at their doorstep through Speed Post based on consent, he pointed out.
The Chief Minister asked government officials to respect the dignity of the citizens coming to government offices.
Among others, Revenue and Disaster Management Minister Sudam Marandi, Chief Secretary Asit Tripathy and Additional Chief Secretary, Revenue and Disaster Management Pradipta Kumar Mohapatra spoke on the occasion.
Present on the occasion, 5T Secretary VK Pandian interacted with the tehsildars of Athagarh, Karanjia, Champua, Jharsuguda and sub-registrars of Bhanjanagar and Kamakhyanagar on the conceptual clarity of Mo Sarkar. He asked them to give constructive suggestions on 5T and Mo Sarkar and send it to the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO).
