People of the state will now be able to avail municipal services sitting at home. Chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Friday launched a host of online services including, procuring instant trade license, property tax assessment and payment and building permission.
He also distributed super sucker machines for the Guwahati Municipal Corporation under the Guwahati Smart City Project and truck-mounted cesspool cleaners. The CM also presented certificates, cash awards and sanction letters to nine urban local bodies, which had received awards under the Swachh Survekshan programme recently.
A total of 10 super suckers were given to the GMC to enhance their de-siltation work so that they could complete the de-siltation of five river channels and 575 drains in the city well before the monsoon. Super suckers were not given to the municipal bodies. The cesspool cleaners were given to all municipal bodies.
Speaking on the occasion, Sarma said the state government has been persistently working to enable people to enjoy government services 24 hours. "The government has adopted technological solutions to provide transparent, timely and accountable services," he said.
Sarma added that from now on people can get their building permission, trade license, learner's license and property tax without going to the civic office. The CM said the civic body's Mission Vasundhara has received positive response and nine lakh people have already applied for the service. He also gave a brief snapshot of all the steps that the government has taken up under the Smart City Project.
