  • It was launched by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at Delhi Secretariat in New Delhi on the sidelines of the proposal to make 12 government services hassle-free through the doing away of the need to produce affidavits and also introduced the concept of self-attestation.

Training programmes would be organised for MLAs and their staff after the ongoing Assembly session to equip them with the expertise to enable people to make optimum use of the service.

  • As part of the project, the government has completely digitised caste data from 1962 to present that was available in its records.
  • The certificates that have been chosen in the first phase of the project include OBC, SC/ST, domicile, disability card, income, solvency, survivor, death order, marriage registration, birth order and ‘lal dora’.
  • Duplication of certificates shall also be available online as part of the project.

This Delhi model of service delivery will act as a guiding light across the country.
