THE INTEGRATED CITIZEN FACILITATION CENTER

 

What is SETU ?

SETU ( “ NAGRI SUVIDHA KENDRA” )is a complete Single Window System, which processes the applications received at the facility center, verifies them and generates the respective Certificates/Affidavits. The system has a provision wherein the operator can punch in all the details of the applicant whenever he receives an application for a Certificate or an Affidavit.
The System generates Acknowledgement Receipt for the citizen indicating the issuance date. The application will then be automatically forwarded to the respective authority for verification. Once the application is verified and accepted, the system will automatically generate the required certificate /Affidavit. In case an application gets rejected, the system will generate Rejection Note indicating the reason for Rejection.

This methodology will also facilitate kiosks in the private sector. These provide services
of issuing various certificates (about 83 types) such as Birth Certificate, Death Certificate , Domicile, Age, Nationality Certificates on nominal charges.

Mission
