Civic body plans home delivery of trade licences, certificates

The standing committee of the East Corporation on Wednesday has proposed a new scheme in Budget 2014-15 in which traders will get licences at their door steps. Not only this, one can even get birth and death certificates at his home.

The chairman of standing committee of East Delhi Municipal Corporation also rejected all new proposed taxes. Giving a major relief to its people, the house tax and property tax remain the same. These suggestions will go to the civic agency’s House for approval.

Chairman Sanjay Surjan told Deccan Herald that traders will now have to make just a phone call to get licenses. “Official will go the shop of a trader and fill in the details and the trader will get the licence within 30 days.”

“The corporation is trying to simplify the process of making and distribution of trading licenses.”

If a birth or death has taken place at a hospital, the corporation will get the details itself from the hospital and issue the certificate, he added. If a birth or death has taken place some where else then one can bring an affidavit and can get the certificate within half an hour.

“We are opening an half-hour window. There will be one such window in each zone, where people can come with some kind of affidavit and get certificates within 30 minutes,” the chairman added.

The East Corporation also proposed Rs 5,000 increase in the amount given to widows for the marriage of their daughters. Earlier, Rs 25,000 was given. Now, the widows will be liable to get Rs 30,000.

There will be no increase in house tax or property tax. “We don’t want to over burden those who are already paying taxes,” Surjan said.

According to East Corporation, the civic agency gets tax from over 2.25 lakh building and this they planned to increase it to 3.25 lakh properties. 

“We will make sure to get property tax from almost all the property owners this year. When the corporation will get property tax from over three lakh commercial properties, its revenue will automatically go up,” Surjan added.
