How do the State’s Common Service Centres (Maha e-Seva Kendras) Work?
The Government of Maharashtra has implemented a National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) to provide government services, such as getting Income Certificates, or Domicile Certificates, to the citizens at their doorstep and at an affordable cost. With an aim to bring transparency into the system and establish citizen centric governance, their plan is to set up 11,819 Common Service Centres (CSC) under the NeGP.
The Government of Maharashtra has launched a CSC scheme called ‘Maha e-Seva Kendra’. Altogether 10,483 centres in rural areas, and 1,336 centres or ‘Kendras’ in urban areas are to be set up in the six revenue divisions of the state through a public-private partnership.
The basic idea behind the Maha e-Seva Kendras is to set up a link between the district administration and the citizen for a smoother electronic delivery of services. The individuals who run these Centres are known as ‘Village Level Entrepreneurs‘ or VLEs. While some VLEs are individuals, some Centres are run by trusts as well.
