Ensuring citizen services are available online by July: Delhi Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena | Delhi News

NEW DELHI: Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena gave instructions for Delhi Municipal Corporation (MCD) to make all of its services requiring a public interface computerized and online by July 31.
Reviewing citizen-centric services such as property tax, e-mutation, building plan sanction, development approval, licensing, conversion and parking fees, etc. , he pointed out that IT services which until now had to be computerized in a piecemeal way should be brought online on a common platform that is easily accessible and made fully computerized by July 31.
Ordering officials to achieve full automation of property tax filing, collection, assessment and collection, Saxena advised: “All properties within the city limits – commercial and residential – will be placed under the tax net so that MCD’s revenue increases and it is able to provide better services.
Concerned that properties, business establishments and residents of 65% of the geographical area of ​​Delhi do not pay any property tax, Saxena said it is an unfortunate, unfair and unsustainable situation. “Since the entire city and not just 35% of the residents of 11 lakh houses enjoy the amenities and services offered by the municipality, it would be fair and justifiable for all to pay property tax at differential rates. For this, officials should simplify the land tax registration forms and ensure its Aadhar link.
The LG further instructed officials to consider people and RWAs and address their concerns. “Such partnerships will not only facilitate honest self-assessment by people, but will also increase tax collection and transparency and ensure better services by society,” he said.
Saxena, however, appreciated the company’s efforts to fully computerize birth and death registrations and asked to link this database to government departments that provided services such as food security, pensions, maternity benefits and other social protection schemes. “This will put an end to ‘phantom beneficiary’ cases,” LG said.
Officials also informed LG of the high figure of 26% of births recorded as having taken place at home and not in a hospital/nursing home. He then ordered a ransom investigation of the quarters.
