With upcoming Citizen’s Service Centre at Kharghar, the residents of the neighbouring areas around Kharghar (including Taloja) will no longer be required to travel up to Panvel tehsil office and stand in long queues to process their official and legal documents like income certificates or affidavits, caste, and domicile.
Known as the biggest node in PCMC area, Kharghar resident’s will get a citizens’ service center in their own district, that will fall under the ambit of the district revenue department within a months’ time.
Dealt by a private agency thoughtful the week, its premises will also have a Maha e-Seva Kendra.
The Panvel tehsil is also considering about starting 12 such Maha e-Seva Kendras sprawled across Panvel taluka covering Cidco developed nodes.
Currently, PCMC commissioner is under the discussion with the Panvel tehsildar to open these centres in a month, basis the demand of the residents for several years. This will save the residents from all the troubles of travelling till Panvel while applying for certificates.
Residents demand for extension counter of Panvel tehsil office was earlier rejected due to a technical reason. However, a centre with the presence of a nayab tehsildar level officer once in a week seemed like more feasible option.
According to PCMC Commissioner Sudhakar Shinde, a grampanchayat office will be a New Year’s gift for the local residents, as the tehsildar will soon open a centre at Kharghar.
As per the head of Swachh Kharghar Manch, Mangal Kamble, “Kharghar is the eduction hub of Navi Mumbai and students are upset about the uphill task of obtainitng various certificates during admissions from Panvel office. This prompted us to write to the PCMC civic chief.”
“We will soon set up a citizens’ service centre in Kharghar where one of our officers from Panvel main tehsil office can be stationed for one day a week to accept the affidavits and other documents and interact with the applicants,” said Panvel tehsildar Deepak Akade.
