Nitish orders to install web cams for Service Act applicants
Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday directed the general administration to install web camera in offices to assist applicants seeking documents under the Right to Public Service Act.
Directing the Principal Secretary of general administration department Dharmendra Singh Gangwar here, the CM said the photograph of official receiving the application will also be taken as a proof of submitting the application.
Kumar said applicants have to spend money on getting photographs clicked for its requirement on the application, so to help them save money the government should install web camera, according to an official release.
The CM gave this order during his "Sewa yatra" at Sitamarhi.
The state government had brought Right to Public Service Act in August 2010, which aims at curbing rampant corruption in government offices.
The legislation helped in conveniently acquiring necessary documents like birth and death certificate, caste certificate among other documents.
Later, addressing a rally in Janipur village of the district, Kumar appealed to the masses to focus on educating girls.
He said to encourage education among people, the government would open college in sub-division which does not have one at present.
