B'loreans too will get 'Nemmadi'

Speaking at the inauguration of the 60th BangaloreOne centre at Basaveshwaranagar on Thursday, he said that in view of demands from people, a Nemmadi centre would be opened within the premises of Regional Transport Office in Rajajinagar before June 5.

He also promised that each BBMP ward would have a BangaloreOne centre and focus would be given to opening more centres in the outlying areas of the City. The progress made in e-governance, he said, had allowed citizens to have more transactions and services without having to resort to the help of middlemen.

Principal Secretary, Department of e-governance, M N Vidyashankar said two more centres would be opened shortly, one in Arakere and one in HSR Layout. The BangaloreOne centres which have been operating since 2005 have seen 90 crore transactions, amounting to Rs 2,500 crore so far.

More services are also in the pipeline like renewal of registration certificates of Shops and Commercial Establishments, collection of stamping and compounding fee from the Department of Legal Metrology, collection of registration and renewal fee of the construction workers on behalf of Welfare Board, collection of insurance premiums and LIC, BSNL payments for new broadband and landline connections, railway ticket booking and booking for domestic and international hotels.
