THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: All the applications pending before the various panchayats, municipalities and Corporation will be disposed of in a year’s time, Local Self-Government Minister K T Jaleel has said.
Attending an adalat held at the Corporation to give clarity on matters pertaining to birth and death certificates, the minister said file adalats will be held at all the local bodies every three months.
According to Jaleel, the LDF Government had appointed an additional Chief Registrar for handling marriage registrations. He said the delay involved in marriage registrations was mostly on account of not submitting the necessary documents. Jaleel said the government had initiated steps to address the inefficiency and shortcomings on the part of officials.
Beginning next month, complaint boxes will be maintained at all the local body offices where the public can submit complaints against the Local Self-Government Institution(LSGI) officials or procedural delays.
The minister said complaints received will be regarded with utmost seriousness by the performance audit section and follow-up action will be taken.
Mayor V K Prashant inaugurated the three-day adalat which is expected to resolve over 3,500 complaints.
