Karnataka has proposed its single-window e-kiosks to be integrated with the centre's CSCs
Sarthak Ray | February 4, 2010
Karnataka's 799 'Nemmadi' telecentres could soon form a chunk of the central government's common service centres (CSCs) across the state.
Nemmadi telecentres are single-window kiosks set up by the state government to provide information on land-records, registration of births and deaths, delivery of birth and death certificates - all online. Applications for social security schemes like old-age pension, pension for widows can also be made online at these centres.
Currently, these centres operate at the hobli-level. A hobli is a cluster of around 30 villages. Under the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP), one CSC will be put up for 5-6 villages.
The state has proposed to integrate its own 'Nemmadi' project with that of the centre's CSCs. “The proposal has been sent to the central government for approval" D S Ravindran, chief executive officer of the Center for e-Governance of the Karnataka government, told Governance Now.
“We are far ahead of other states in delivering G2C (government-to-citizen) services. Nemmadi offers the same services a CSC will be offering. If the proposal is approved, each Nemmadi centre will be serving the gram panchayat it is located in,” Ravindran said, adding that Karnataka's 5,267 villages will be needing around 4,000 CSCs apart from the existing Nemmadi centres.
