“The launch of the Sakala has brought smiles for over ten million citizens in the state,” said Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister S Suresh Kumar on Tuesday.

He said on September 4,  Sakala achieved a milestone when the number of applications had reached 1 crore.

Terming September a ‘consolidation month’, he said it had not only completed six months, but also witnessed a higher disposal of applications than the receipts. “While the cumulative receipts of the applications under Sakala reached 1,14,18551 in September, the disposal in time also crossed 109,27,615 in the same month,” he said.

Complimenting the Sakala team for making the implementation of the scheme as “grand success”, the minister said that recognition to the scheme is not only pouring in from other states but also from other countries.

“Bangladesh had invited Sakala mission officials from Karnataka to be their resource person in implanting a system similar to Sakala in their country,” he said.

Outlining the performance of the scheme in the state, he said that at the end of September 2012, Chitradurga is ranked first followed by Uttara Kannada and Dakshina Kannada.

He said, “Till today as many as 124,61806 applications were received and the disposal stood at 121,16458.” The state government has decided to include another 114 services  under Sakala.
