J&K CSC Association Thursday asked Governor N N Vohra led J&K administration to implement. J&K CSC Association is a parent organization of all the Khidmat Centres of J&K.
Addressing media in Jammu, president of the Association Shah Shabir made some observatios, accroding to a statement issued this evening.
Ø ‘National’ e-Governance Project was started in the state in the year 2009 and Khidmat Centres were rolled out. Qualified youth were taken into this project who invested in this to act as front end delivery points especially in the far flung rural areas of J&K.
Ø Government had promised routing all the Government to Customer services through these Centres thus making them sustainable and viable.
Ø This project is aimed at Bridging the Gap between Government and Citizens and make the process of service delivery transparent, Smart, Accountable, Hassle free and Cost effective. This ultimately helps in developing a corruption free system.
Ø Government till date has totally failed to implement this project at par with the Union Government directives and Guidelines. This project is doing well in other States on comparative basis.
Ø Hundreds of orders have been issued and review meetings have been a part of the Government curriculum regarding this auspicious centrally sponsored project but the situation at ground level is very grim and pathetic.
Ø We have continuously pressed for the proper implementation of this project but people at the helm of affairs are ignoring our requests and exploiting this project as per their personal need and requirement. This project has been so far victimized politically.
Ø It seems that State Administration doesn’t want to implement this project practically to make the process of Governance smart and corruption free. The system by ignoring this project and Khidmat Centres/CSCs is encouraging Red Tapism and Corruption.
Ø State Government till date has violated all the norms by outsourcing various schemes and projects to private parties and vendors and are now rolling out new centres only to ruin the career of more youth of J&K.
Ø Financial support due to Khidmat Centre Operators vide Govt Order No:, 46 ITD of 2011, Dated 14-12-2011 hasn’t been released, forcing Khidmat Centres and their families to suffer. Services like Electricity Bill collection, Aadhaar, Electoral Services, Revenue records, Birth/Death Certificates, ePDS, connectivity etc haven’t been provided to Khidmat Centres till date.
Ø Association members further warned State Administration of dire consequences if their demands are not met immediately.
Ø We have already informed His Excellency Honourable Governor of J&K regarding the current scenario of the project and exploitation done so far and we are waiting for his kind intervention to safeguard the future of thousands of youth.
