Deepak Kumar (IAS), Principal Secretary, General Administration Department, Government of Bihar said now people can file online applications for obtaining caste, income and domicile certificates and later more services will be made online. “It will also provide an opportunity to file applications from the place and time of their choice. Even people living in rural areas can use internet to file applications," added Kumar. Further he said, keeping in mind the heavy rush for obtaining certificates under the RTPS, the government has decided to put these three services online.

The RTPS Act became effective in the state on Aug 15 this year and since then nearly 5.5 million people have applied for certificates. "Out of the 5.5 million applications received after the RTPS Act came into force, more than four million applications were filed for caste, income and domicile certificates alone," Deepak Kumar said.

In the first phase, time limits prescribed for 50 public services." Earlier, Nitish said he had warned government officials who do not perform the common man's jobs within a stipulated timeframe will face a fine of up to Rs 5,000. The chief minister said if a government official failed to deliver a service within a given timeframe, he or she will be held personally responsible and the government will impose a fine for the delay. He said after the act was implemented, people will no longer have to run around government offices to get their work done.
