'Atalji Janasnehi Kendras' open in DK, Udupi

Surathkal, Dec 25, 2012, DHNS:

The Nemmadi Centres that were established under public - private partnership, have been rechristened as Atalji Janasnehi Kendras across the State, on former prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee’s birthday, on Tuesday.

The Nemmadi centres in the State have been restructured not only to reduce time taken to deliver services, but also to help them to function from hobli-level.

Citizens can avail 36 services at the centres, including caste, income, birth and death certificates. The deadlines under Sakala scheme will apply to all these services. The government has appointed deputy tahsildars as in-charge of these centres after bringing the centres under the Revenue Department.


The powers once vested with tahsildars to sanction a few services have been delegated to deputy tahsildars. The citizens need not visit taluk office, to avail services of the revenue department. There will be 17 such centres in Dakshina Kannada district and five centres in Mangalore taluk.

Inaugurating the centre formally at Surathkal, Assembly Deputy Speaker Yogish Bhat said that with the shortcomings in Nemmadi kendras, the work pressure had increased in taluk office.

As a result, the citizens had to wait for months to avail the services. To support decentralisation of administration and good governance, Atalji Janasnehi Kendras have been set up at hobli level.

As many as 28 villages come under the jurisdiction of Surathkal centre. This includes 19 villages of MCC. Though the services at the centre will start from Wednesday, it will take atleast one or two weeks to become a full-fledged centre. Hence, the centres in other taluks will start functioning from next month.

To avoid any kind of confusion, Nemmadi Kendra will continue to function for two more weeks, said Additional DC Dayanand.

MLA Krishna Palemar also spoke. Dakshina Kannada Deputy Commissioner N Prakash, Mayor Gulzar Banu, Tahsildar Ravichandra, Additional DC K A Dayanand and others were present.

In Udupi

Atalji Janasnehi Kendra was inaugurated in Udupi by MLA K Raghupathi Bhat on Tuesday.
Additional DC Kumar said that 10 centres have been started in the district. Each centre will have three computers, and a printer. As many as 30 services will be issued by Deputy Tahsildar himself. To solve erratic supply of electricity, solar facility has been installed, at the centre. TP President Gauri Poojary, CMC Vice-President Bharathi Chandrashekar, and others were present.
