Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday announced the launch of Doorstep delivery government services. He announced that the benefit would be launched on September 10.

Terming the move as a revolution in governance, CM Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, “Doorstep delivery of services - A revolution in governance. A big blow to corruption, super convenience for people. Happening for the first time anywhere in the world. Starts from 10th Sept.” 

Delhi government had proposed doorstep delivery of services earlier this year. The Aam Aadmi Party government had accused Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal for impeding it.

According to media reports, mobile sahayaks (facilitators) will be hired through the agency that would set up call centres. Various certificates such as caste, new water connection, income, driving license, ration card, domicile, marriage registration, duplicate RC and change of address in RC, among others, will be covered under the scheme.

Earlier this year, the apex court in a judgment unanimously held that Delhi cannot be accorded the status of a state but clipped the powers of the LG, saying he has no “independent decision making power” and has to act on the aid and advice of the elected government.
