Govt gazette now at the click of a mouse


Mahendra Kumar Singh | TNN


New Delhi: Now, a simple click of the mouse will lead you to all central government gazette notifications with the urban development ministry developing an e-gazette system.


The website will also contain Delhi government’s notifications relating to subjects under the Centre’s jurisdiction.


The system, to be maintained by the department of printing and publication of the ministry, will ensure date-wise, month-wise and subjectwise availability of all notifications which contain government policy and directives.


A senior ministry official said the online system was devised to reduce the time lag as well as to facilitate easy accessibility for users all over the country. “It will also ensure transparency,” he added.


Presently, gazette notifications are available to the public only after 10-15 days of the date of publication and people across the country have to travel to the state capital to get a copy of the document. The e-gazette process will also help users for other purposes like research, court cases and settlement of legal documents. A ministry official said that the printed version would continue to remain in vogue while the e-gazette would have its own usefulness. The system, in tune with the ministry’s egovernance concept, will ensure uploading of all notifications on the e-gazette website and will be available to users on payment of the prescribed price.


At present, the department of publication houses all the central government gazette notifications dating back to 1962 and the number of gazette notifications in the record room runs to around 61,71,000, an official said. Gazette notifications prior to 1962 are available in National Archives, he added. The official said that the earnings of the government through sale of gazette notifications was around Rs 5 crore every year and the egazette was expected to bring in more revenue.

      Filing RTI queries to be a click away soon
      MUMBAI: Getting information under the Right to Information (RTI) Act will soon be just a click away. In a month's time, citizens will be able to file their RTI applications on the BMC website.
      According to BMC officials, the process will be centralised and the applications will be forwarded to the civic body's concerned departments. The payments can be made in the same way as property taxes are paid. "We are working out the final nitty-gritties of the process. We are also taking into consideration the fact that many people are not computer savvy. Our Citizen Facilitation Centres (CFCs) will help them file their queries,'' said Suresh Mhatre, vice president of Tata Consultancy Services. "The website will allow people to post their address so that they can be provided with the necessary documents,'' he added.
      The civic body had, at the outset of its portal, put up instructions on filing an RTI query. "This makes it easy for citizens to frame their queries without getting confused. Now, things will be easier as they will be able to file their applications online,'' said additional municipal commissioner Anil Diggikar.
