Make government and related services completely online
- Make renewal of passports completely online, since all the details are already in their database. As of now, one has to take an appointment, visit the passport office. And not all passport seva kendras are open. Even if they are open, it is only for very limited customers. alternatively, extend the validity of passports which are due to expire until the end of the year or more, with an email a printout of which can be attached to the passport. Take the necessary fees, if required.
Also, the process of filling up the online form for renewal is extremely cumbersome. one has to fill in ALL the details, as if applying for a new passport. Instead, just take the existing passport number, fill all the fields with the available details. Users can change any information, with supporting documents where applicable.
- Make renewal of driving licenses completely online, since all the details are already in their database. As of now, one has to visit the RTO office (and run from pillar to post there, especially in some of the RTOs in Bangalore). alternatively, extend the validity of Licenses which are due to expire until the end of the year or more. Take the necessary fees, if required.
- Existence certificates for insurance policies - allow to upload/email online, with only self attestation. As of now it requires signatures from some specified personalities.
Surely, there are many more such process which can be made completely online, without citizens having to visit the centers and crowding. These will also reduce corruption for the common man (if the government is serious about this). more
