Chandigarh, July 6 (MNN) The Haryana Right to Service Commission has asked the state government to bring 53 services provided by Haryana Urban Development Authority (HSVP) under the purview of essential services.
The government has also been asked to rationalise the time limit prescribed for various services.
Commission Chair TC Gupta said that the decision on these issues were taken at the 36th meeting held on July 5, during which the Commission’s work during May and June was also reviewed.
He said that 16 services have been notified by HSVP at present whereas its website shows 53 services.
The Commission thus recommended to notify all these 53 services.
Gupta said that there was also need to rationalise the time limits notified for various services as the time frame dated back to an era when services were provided manually.
But now that the services are provided online, the time frame should also be made practical, the Commission head said.
Giving an example of building plans, he said that 30-day time limit has been notified for their approval but in case of residential buildings it was only three days on HSVP website.
The Commission would work to ensure that services of various departments under the Right to Service Act are available to the general public within the stipulated time frame.
In addition, the number of services provided under the Act will also be increased from 551 to 1,000 by the end of 2021.
