Early Times Report
jammu, July 6: There are reports making rounds within the administrative circles that the single window system is all set to be implemented in the state with major emphasis being laid upon to put lid over the mounting cases of corruption.
As per the reports, the government was already made aware by the Vigilance Commission that e-governance needs to be introduced to ensure transparency and better services to the public by disseminating the information through an efficient, speedy and transparent process to the public and other agencies.
It was stated further that the e-governance could be introduced by Computerization of records in all the public dealing departments and introduction of e-procurement in all public procurements and contracts. The government was also informed that it could enhance awareness about e-governance and minimise public interface. There were also suggestions that there must be introduction of Single Window clearance system for providing public services like NOCs, Licenses, category Certificates, Permissions etc. "Discouraging existence of undesired contactmen and touts in various service providing departments having public interface. Shifting to cashless transaction mode by resorting to electronic transfers and payments through bank accounts are the steps that are needed to be taken," reads the report submitted to the government by the anti-graft body.
However, despite years of delay, the proposal for the single window system is illusive for the state of Jammu and Kashmir which is among the top Indian states wherein graft cases are spiking with successive regimes least concerned about such a worrisome trend. "Steps that could ensure the corruption free era aren't taken at all by the government. It is unfortunate that to control corruption, only cosmetic measures are witnessed that aren't making any difference on the ground while corrupt officials continue to roam freely sans any remorse," says an official, adding that the state governor too in the past has asked the government to ensure e-governance is introduced in the state. However, the dilatory mode of functioning within the state is acting as a major spoilsport in the entire process.
One more example of how the government isn't doing enough for the single Window System in the state is that the financial support due to Khidmat Centre Operators vide Govt Order No: 46 ITD of 2011, Dated 14-12-2011 hasn't been released, forcing them 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.
A senior official privy to this development told Early Times that there are high chances now that the file will get cleared soon and in major government offices, this much awaited project of single window system is actually going to be implemented. "It will curb the practices of corruption to a large extent and not only will the common people heave a sigh of relief from such a measure but it will also ease the burden on the official machinery of the state," said an official.
