CHANDIGARH:  The Punjab Cabinet on Tuesday approved draft Punjab e-stamp Rules-2014 for the implementation of e-stamping system to ensure  more efficiency and transparency in the revenue collection.

The e-stamping would eliminate the process of purchasing stamp papers and would ensure transparency, faster collection of registration fee and  guard against embezzlement.

To enhance accountability and transparency in the functioning of government offices, the Cabinet also gave approval to free Right of Way to BSNL to connect state government offices at all levels to wide area network established by the Department of Governance Reforms under e-district project.

Forty-seven key citizen centric services, including birth/ death certificates, pension services, ration card services, marriage, caste and residence certificates, RTI and grievances have been selected under the project.

The Cabinet also gave approval to include the words “blockade of rail or road traffic” in part 2 (C) of ‘The Punjab Prevention of Damage to Public and Private Property Bill-2014’ defining ‘damaging act’.
