11 public notary services go online
With the primary objective to facilitate the provision of Public Notary Services, the Royal Court of Justice in collaboration with the Public Service and Grievance Redressal Division (PSGRD) under the Cabinet Secretariat ventured into the automation of eleven services.
The services consist of marriage certificate, name change, translation of marriage certificate, lost documents, marital status, attestation of documents, child adoption, organ transplant, closing of accounts, transfer of shares and attesting of agreement, wills, contracts and testaments among others.
With this initiative, now the applicants seeking the notary services can apply online and seek appointment for each service. On the appointed date and time, the applicants are advised to come with required documents.
From a service delivery point, automating this part of the services has greatly enhanced the efficiency of the services considering the resource component from both the services provider’s and citizens’ side. This is line with the continuous efforts undertaken to streamline the judicial procedures with increased accessibility and to ensure quality judicial services to the citizens. The online services will not only strengthen the effectiveness of the judicial officials in deliver- ing the services but also serve as unified platform for the citizens to consume services.
The piloting done in Thimphu in the last few months was well received by the citizens. Considering the impact foreseen in this endeavour, it will be of paramount to benefit to roll out the eServices nationwide, for which the full-fledged piloting is necessary and will be continued to stabilize the systems.
The services are available from the Citizen Portal www.citizenservices.gov.bt and is funded by the Government of India.
The handing-taking of the judiciary eServices between the Public Service Delivery & Grievance Redressal office and the judiciary took place between the Cabinet Secretary Kinzang Wangdi and Registrar General of the Royal Court of Justice Tshering Dorji last Tuesday in the capital.
