YUKSAM,: The public of six Gram Panchayats under Chongrang block can now get their various official works done online as the block administrative centre has started online service.
BDO Garap Dorjee Bhutia said, “Now the people of six GPUs under Chongrang Block Administrative Centre can get their various officially required certificates by applying online.”
Chongrang BAC has six GPUs including some of the remotest villages in Sikkim.
“Recently, we provided training to employees of IT section in every GPU under the Chongrang BAC to enable them to help people applying for e-certification. Those people who do not have internet connectivity can visit their respective Gram Panchayat Kendra,” said Dorjee.
So far, the BAC has received 63 applications out of which 62 were issued certificates online. The first certificate was issued on June 28. On July 9, training was provided to two employees from each GPU so that they can help the public with online application.
