Applicants will get big facility in view of corona infection
Chief Minister Mr. Bhupesh Baghel has now provided the facility of providing caste and residence certificates in their homes, giving a big relief to the students and general public of the state. On the instructions of the Chief Minister Mr. Baghel, the order has been issued to all the district collectors by the General Administration Department of the state government, to simplify the distribution of caste and residence certificates, to make the certificates accessible to the applicants at home.
After issuance of caste and residence certificate under the issued order, the certificate will be sent to the respective home address after taking postal registry fee from the respective applicants. For this, public service centers and tehsil offices will be allowed to send certificates to the residence address of the applicants by taking postal registry expenditure fee from the applicants and acknowledging the expenditure charges. Therefore, applicants will not have to go to tehsil offices and public service centers again. The Secretary of the General Administration Department has instructed all the collectors of the state to start the facility of sending caste and residence certificate to the applicants at the earliest.
It is to be noted that under the Chhattisgarh Public Service Guarantee Act, the Department of Revenue and Disaster Management is issuing caste and residence certificates by the Tehsil Offices, Sub-Divisional Officer Revenue. In the present system, applicants are obtained after submitting the application for caste and residence certificates in public service centers and tehsil offices after the prescribed period. Now home access service is being provided to the applicants by post.
