11 pub­lic no­tary ser­vices go on­line

Bhutan Times - - Home - Staff Re­porter

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.
