Soon, Greater Noida Authority to launch app to ease paperwork
To minimise hassles faced by people and make paperwork easier, the Greater Noida Authority is all set to launch an e-governance software in the next few days. As per the report, officials have been directed to put the system in place as soon as possible.
Following directions, the authority has invited an Expression of Interest (EOI) from reputed IT companies to develop a software for the service facilitation activity. Once implemented, as many as 27 citizen services will be online. Notably, the Noida Authority has put 152 citizen services online last year.
According to the officials, facilitation activity will include putting property details online and an online facility to address grievances through smartphone apps. Interested companies will be required to make a presentation to GNIDA CEO, Deepak Agarwal and other senior officials by the end of the month. “Once the software is launched, people will no longer need to visit the authority office for routine works such as transfer of memorandum of property, submitting installments, application of layout plans for sanctions, etc” said an official. The selected company will put about 27 services online on a portal, which will be linked to Greater Noida’s website, www.greaternoidaauthority.com.
“Services will include building sanctions, horticulture, sanitation, road maintenance, water supply, street lighting, etc. “Timelines and required documents will also be mentioned online. Transfer, mutation, NOC, no dues certificate and more will be done without coming to the authority,” he said.
“The citizen charter will be displayed outside every department of the authority. As per the charter, no work will be hauled up with any officer for more than seven working days. The charter includes a list of services to be provided to the common man and the time frame within which they need to be completed,” added the official. In August last year, the Noida Authority had implemented the service.
