Haryana Chief Minister, Manohar Lal said that several steps taken by the state government in the direction of digital governance in the last eight-and-a-half-years are proving effective for the citizens. He said that by reducing human intervention in the implementation of government schemes and programmes through e-governance, the benefits of all the schemes are being provided to the general public at their doorsteps.

“This has curbed corruption and the administrative processes have also gained momentum, with change in the old dilapidated system. As a result, today the administration has become smart (Simple, Moral, Accountable, Responsible, Transparent),” said  Manohar Lal.

The Chief Minister was interacting with the Common Service Centre (CSC) operators through audio conferencing from Karnal today.

Any error or mistake in data uploaded by CSC will be rectified in 48 hours

During the interaction, the Chief Minister asked the CSC operators for information related to uploading data for the schemes, on which some CSC operators said that sometimes error occurs in entering the data on the portal at their level; due to which the eligible beneficiary gets delayed benefits. On this, the Chief Minister immediately directed the concerned officials that in case of any error or mistake in the data uploaded at the CSC level, it should be rectified within 48 hours; so that people do not have to wait long for the services.

Apart from this, the CSC operators also raised the issue of age verification of citizens above 60 years of age. On this, the Chief Minister said that the process of verification of the age group of 58 to 60 years is going on smoothly and the government will soon start the verification process of those above 60 years of age.

About 13,000 active common service centres are operational in the state, where various types of 12,938 services are being provided,” he asserted. In the financial year 2022-23, over 1.72 crore transactions have taken place through CSC.
