More services to be brought under Gram One Centre, CM Bommai

Bengaluru, Aug. 17: With a view to providing civic services in gran panchayat level, Chief Minister Basavaraja Bommai instructed officials to add a few more  services to Grama One Centres to strengthen them.

Chairing the review meeting of Department of e-governance here on Wednesday, he asked officials to identify the services that could be provided at Grama One Centres, discuss it with departments concerned and then take necessary steps. The specialised services must be restricted to the districts concerned and provide the same through the Grama One Centres. Opportunities could be created to offer micro banking, LPG booking and other services at the Centres.

As many as 7274 Centres are functioning in all districts so far. Bommai suggested officials to experiment on providing the services of Atal Jana Snehi Centres which are functioning in Hobli level at least in a few Gram One Centres. Discussion was also held regarding starting of the new data centre and the officials were asked to select the suitable place for the proposed Centre. Even private companies are coming forward to start the Data Centre and a policy needs to be worked out to take services from those centres.

He instructed officials to start preparations for starting Drone School under the PM Gathishakthi scheme at a cost of Rs 25 crore.

The officials explained to the CM that several facilities are provided to citizens under various schemes without submitting applications on the basis of information available in  Kutumba software. As announced by the chief minister recently such as free 75 units of power under Amrit Jyothi, scholarship for the children of weavers and beneficiaries are identified on the basis of software.

The CM stressed on providing satisfactory service to the complainants under Integrated Complaints Redressal system.
