The North Delhi Municipal Corporation and a major e-payment company teamed up on Thursday to boost the digital mode of payment for citizens to avail civic services, officials said.
City Commissioner Sanjay Goel said the collaboration will promote hassle-free digital transactions and improve digital penetration among citizens.
NDMC and PayTM have partnered to boost the digital mode of payment for using civic services, the officials said, adding that the move will go a long way in promoting transparency and the ease of doing business.
Goel said citizens can pay taxes through a soon-to-be-available payment gateway to take advantage of other city services, such as birth and death registration, e-mutation, health business license, reservation of parks and community halls, etc.
It provides digital access and the aim is to make e-governance services easily available to citizens, the officials said.
In another development, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation said that under Swachh Survekshan-2022 it had declared Ghumanhera ward in Najafgarh area as its first ‘Atmanirbhar ward’.
This neighborhood has 24 village committees. Thanks to the active participation of residents and the pursuit of a brand ambassador, they achieved 100% waste separation and were able to treat 100% wet waste in their neighborhood and generate compost, have officials said.
SDMC is calling on all South Delhi residents to segregate their waste into dry, wet and hazardous segments and hand them over to sanitation staff during door-to-door collection, they said.
