150 PRC's delivered to people under MDAD in south Kashmir
Under the Mission of Delivery at Doorsteps (MDAD), 150 Permanent Resident Certificate (PRCs) were delivered to people at their doorstep in south Kashmir district of Shopian.
This was for the first time that the applicants were provided PRCs to applicants.
The Deputy Commissioner, while describing it a humble beginning assured the people that it was the endeavour of the district Administration to extend this mode of service delivery in other sectors as well.
"We not only mean to provide quick and hassle free services to the people but also aspire to save their time and money which they squander in follow ups," the Deputy Commissioner asserted.
With the advent of Right to Information (RTI) and Public Service Guarantee (PSG) acts having made a remarkable difference in the speed of delivery of services, programme like MDAD, would go a long way in reducing the time gap to get the grievances redressed.
Saying that it was fundamental for any government dispensation to ensure welfare of people, the Assistant Commissioner, Revenue, Parveez Sajad, said that under MDAD, a mechanism has been put in place wherein officials of concerned departments would visit villages and contact people in person and after taking a note of their requirements will collect the related documents to ensure delivery of service at their doorsteps.
Under MDAD, through a series of events, Ration cards, old age pensions, electricity and water connection documentation, benefits under various social welfare schemes would be provided to people at their homes.
