Now, the people of state would not have to personally visit the government offices to get birth and death certificates.
They can now register online to get these certificates.
Chief minister Ashok Gehlot will launch a web portal “Pehchaan”, at the directorate office of economic and statistics on Thursday.
The portal has been designed exclusively for the registration of death and birth certificates.
According to the sources, the entire data of birth and death certificates released by the administration and local bodies will be available here. Also, the new applicants can fill forms for these certificates via the portal.
The department, after receiving the application, will forward it to the concerned municipal body to generate the desired certificate.
“The department will accept applications only through the portal and certificates will be distributed at the municipal offices,” said OP Bairwa, the director.
Ironically, the IT officials of the directorate are not aware of the functions of the portal being launched by the CM. When contacted, head of the IT cell Rajesh Rathore said he was not aware about the functioning of the proposed portal.
“I am not aware how the portal would function to accept and generate birth and death certificates. Only thing I know is the portal being launched on Thursday,” Rathore said.
