Allow Citizens Service Centres to issue certificates, not e-seva: TDP
2011/6/22 16:05:46 The Telugu Desam Party on Wednesday urged new Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation Commissioner MT Krishna Babu to implement a resolution adopted earlier to issue birth and death certificates through Citizen Service Centres instead of E-Seva centres.
In a letter to Mr Krishna Babu, Telugu Desam Party Floor Leader in the Corporation Singi Reddy Srinivas Reddy pointed out that the resolution was adopted after several representations from Corporators and voluntary organizations.
He reminded that the resolution adopted gave the nod to implement issuance of the important certificates through 18 citizen service centers located in each circle office.
These services are necessary to avoid delay of services for needy people, Mr Singi Reddy said, adding that rather than E-Seva, Citizen Service Centers have the better edge in issuance of births and deaths certificates.
The people will be able to obtain the certificates easily and early from the registrar and sub-registrar of the concerned circle as the E-Seva staff are substandard (under-qualified personal who have cleared only SSC and Intermediate), the TDP leader said.
He added that these under-qualified personnel are unable to understand the Birth and Death Act and the guidelines issued by the GHMC for various services, including name inclusion, correction and non-available certificate.
This is leading to the citizens who are in urgent need of the certificates suffering as they are not getting the services in time, Mr Singi Reddy said.
Besides this, the E-Seva is charging heavily for rendering services to the GHMC for the issuance of birth and death certificates, which is causing a loss to the Corporation. The citizen service centers of the GHMC are also a one-stop service centre where in the citizen apply and collect particular certificates, he pointed out and urged the GHMC Commissioner to take note of his request.

2011/7/29 15:35:48 The e-Seva centres in Andhra Pradesh will function of Sunday July 31 from 9:00 AM to 8:00 Pm instead of 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
According to a press release from the director e-seva, due to heavy rush for obtaining income, caste and residential certificates and for collection of property tax and RTA services, July 31 being last date, this facility is being provided for the convenience of the people. (INN)
2011/8/18 15:21:25 The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation on Thursday asked all the traders in its limits to renew their trade licenses for the year 2011-2012 in any of e-Seva Centers / Citizen Service Centers in GHMC limits.
According to GHMC, the deadline for renewal of trade license without any penalty has been extended upto 30th August. The traders can obtain trade license certificate from CSC or E-Seva centers by submission of payment receipt number. However, to renew the trade license in between 31st August to 30th October, the trader has to pay 25% of the fee as penalty in addition to the original license fee. Similarly, for renewals after 31st October, a penalty of 50% would be imposed.
However, the GHMC has warned that it would close the establishments who have not renewed their trade license by 30th August.
Those traders who have not taken the trade license so far have can approach the nearest e-Seva Centers / Citizen Service Centers in GHMC Circle offices and apply for the same.
Further, traders who have got interim orders of AP High Court on bulk garbage charges have been asked to approach the Joint Commissioner (H&S), at the GHMC's Head Office, for the payment of trade license fee, along with the DD’s. (INN)

He said the all certificates would be given to candidates within 30 days after conducting proper enquiry. He said that all employees in the â€śMee Sevaâ€ť Centres would be appointed on contract basis by a private firm.

2011/11/7 2:00:43 The State Government is planning to expand the "Mee Seva" centres to cover initially 20 to 25 services with a target to bring under its ambit as many as 50 services by the end of 2012. The service is likely to be expanded to cover the farming community as well by providing them through the IT kiosks vital information inputs related to market conditions such as area wise prevailing rates, rates of fertilizer, pesticides and seed.
According to a release by the Chief Minister's Office, the government is also examining the possibility of imposing penalities and intitiating punitive action against the staff concerned if they fail to deliver the certificates in time.
The CMO claimed that Andhra Pradesh ranks first in implementing several welfare and development schemes. Further, the state is the foremost in launching several novel programmes such as The Licensed Cultivators Act, Zero interest to farmers, Stree Nidhi, Social Audit of Mgnregs Scheme and the recently launched Mee Seva programme.
The "Mee Seva" programme introduced on a pilot basis in Chittoor and Krishna districts is envisaged as a transparent and secured citizen-centric web-based service which will provide convenient access to people in securing copies of land records like adangal, village map, residence and income certificate, integrated caste-nativity-birth certificates, certified copies of registration documents and so on.
Every year about two crore people are applying for some or other certificate. Mee Seva centres would cut back on time and cost overruns and provide a speedy and hassle free service to the citizens. The government is trying to provide better services to the people.
The facility is extremely people friendly and is designed to put an end to the ordeal of making people run from pillar to post to secure the certificates.
The officials say that all efforts were made to ensure that there are no loopholes in the programme. Earlier, it would take several days for anyone to get any certificate, be it adangal or income or birth certificate. With the launch of Mee Seva, the certificates would obtained within minutes. A charter has been evolved which will be displayed at all the Mee Seva centres. It contains information pertaining to the time taken for issuing different kinds of certificates and the prescribed fee. A toll free number system would also be set up so that the applicants could get information
Certificates and documents will be issued with the digital signature of the official concerned. Necessary amendments have been made to the Andhra Pradesh Information Technology Rules (Electronic Service Delivery) Act, 2011 to provide authenticity to the certificate or document with the digital signature of the official.
These efforts will bring about a revolutionary change in the system

Mumbai, Sep 23 (IANS) Megastar Akshay Kumar's heart beats for the juvenile and old alike -- he has become the ambassador of a Mumbai-based hospital to support children and senior citizens suffering from heart ailment.
The action hero is now the 'Goodheart Ambassador' for Asian Heart Institute (AHI) to espouse the cause of over one million babies born worldwide with congenital heart problems, mostly from economically deprived sections, and senior citizens struggling to eke out their second innings on meagre resources, said AHI Vice-Chairman and Managing Director Ramakant Panda.
"AHI has launched 'Asian Seva' to provide economical but expert cardiac treatment, surgery and medical care to the two most important segments of our society -- children and old citizens," Panda told IANS.
The benefits under 'Asian Seva' can be availed by children below 12 years and senior citizens above 65 years of age, he added.

Bollywood badshah Shah Rukh Khan has to pay a price for endorsing products — a whopping Rs 71 lakh. This is the amount King Khan forked out as service tax for April to June 2006.
While other actors too strut their stuff for the advertising industry, Khan rules the roost when it comes to paying service tax. He is followed by Abhishek Bachchan who paid Rs 25 lakh this financial year (2006-07). Rani Mukherjee is at the third slot with Rs 18 lakh and Amitabh Bachchan, Rs 15 lakh.
Other major service taxpayers include Sushmita Sen (Rs 9 lakh), Hrithik Roshan (Rs 8 lakh), Saif Ali Khan (Rs 7.5 lakh) and Ajay Devgan (Rs 6.75 lakh).
Service tax is paid quarterly while the return for the same is filed every six months.
Confirming the figures, SJ Singh Commissioner, Service Tax, said the department had identified 70 brand ambassadors who had to pay service tax and half of these had not even registered themselves with the department.
"Notices have been sent to 35 brand ambassadors who are either from the film or television world," Singh said.
Levying of service tax on brand ambassadors was a controversial issue till recently. Actors had argued that they worked in individual capacity and not as commercial concerns and don't fall under the ambit of service tax.
However, in the latest Union budget, the government clarified that individual endorsing of products would come under service tax net. The government removed the words "commercial concern" from all the areas falling under the service tax bracket and replaced it with "person".
This cleared the confusion. Service tax officers said, post this amendment a lot of celebrities from Bollywood and television who have endorsed products, came forward to register themselves with the department.
Meanwhile, service tax officers have also written letters to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), BEST and railways asking them to register themselves with the department as they sell space for advertisement and provide other services. Singh confirmed that letters were written to these government bodies.
The department wanted information about the persons these bodies had given services to and the payment they got for the same.
Singh added that the department has only sent letters to these bodies but it would meet general managers of all these bodies some time soon.
