MCD brings citizen services to your door step

Now you can pay taxes, bills, apply for passports and book movie tickets at neighbourhood kiosks

GN Bureau | February 5, 2010



Thanks to Municipal Corporation of Delhi's new initiative, you will soon be able to pay your telephone and electricity bills, apply for passport and book movie tickets at a neighbourhood kiosk. A number of government-to- citizen services (G2C) will be made available online by the end of this month.

Named ‘Aapke Dwar’, the civic body has started setting up kiosks in a number of residential colonies to make available web-enabled services free of cost.

Hyderabad-based firm Bartronics India Ltd (BIL) has been engaged for the purpose. About 300 kiosks are expected to start operating by the end of February. A total of 2,000 such kiosks are planned before the commonwealth games kick in later this year. 

BIL has already set up 16 such kiosks in Paharganj and Karol Bagh. The one at the New Delhi railway station is already operational.

Telephone directories, yellow pages and even information about area-wise shopping malls and discount offers will be available at the these kiosks.

Other government services like payment of taxes, issuance of certificates will also be made accessible online.
