The launch was marked with grant of building permission to five applicants under this system. The applicants can seek online registration by logging on to www.jkhudd.gov.in.

Principal Secretary Housing and Urban Development Department Suresh Kumar, who formally launched the online facilitation of vital statistics and building permission here this evening said that bringing registration of births and deaths under the e-governance shall be supplemented with creation of data-base of the new births and deaths apart from storage of the earlier data of these vital statistics in easy and assessable mode. “ At a mere pressing of new keys on the key-board or with a touch of the fingers the data can be assessed, stored and saved”, said Sharma adding that the record tampering is virtually impossible under the soft-ware developed by the National Informatics Centre.

Mr Sharma said bringing the Housing and Urban Development Department which is mandated to frame policies, prepare plans and schemes for growth of urban areas under the e-governance shall invariably strengthen urban local self governing units thereby enabling them in speedier, swift and correct discharge of their functions particularly in terms of providing quality municipal services to the people.

They also informed the gathering present at the launch ceremony about the huge repository that could be created and stored in just minimal space. “ It is really wondrous to store such huge and old record of thousands and thousands of people in a advanced machine, which could be of immense importance for the social scientists engaged in population studies discipline and anthropological studies”.
