Mr Manohar Lal said that Haryana has become the first state in the country to implement Aadhaar-linked registration of birth. The system would ensure that every newborn child will get Aadhaar number at birth besides the birth registration so that later on he or she could get the benefit of all schemes and programmes . He said that it is a matter of concern that at present the people have to submit birth certificate as an evidence of their existence and also have to visit the government offices again and again for the same.

            He said that to ensure that the government employees reach their offices in time, Aadhaar-enabled biometric Attendance system (AEBAS) has been implemented in government offices of the State. With the implementation of this system, Haryana has also become the first  State in the country to implement the Aadhaar-enabled AEBAS. He said e-stamping would make the registry process easier as there would be no need to purchase stamp paper for the registry. Citizens can now generate e-Stamp by paying online through internet. The Revised State Portal would have information about various and programmes of the departments.

            The Chief Minister said to make the CM window more effective, Mobile app has been launched with the help of which anybody could get to know the status of his complaint on his mobile phone.  CM window was launched on all district headquarters on December 25, on the Birthday of former Prime Minister Mr Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Mr Madan Mohan Malviya which was also observed as Good Governance Day. He said that apart from this, 20 citizen centric services have been linked with e-services under the Service Act to ensure their time bound delievery through the Citizen Service Centres (CSCs). Several other such services would also be linked with e-services soon, he added.

            In reply to a question, the Chief Minister said the previous State Government neglected the interest of various categories of employees as a result of which now they were suffering and running from pillar to post. He assured that the present Government would take care of their interest.  Apart from the government jobs, special emphasis would be given to provide employment to youth in industrial sector. He said that the government is going to announce its Industrial Policy within next 15 days. Big industrialists including those from Haryana who have settled their businesses in other States as well abroad would be invited to set up their ventures in Haryana. This would not only boost development but also provide ample employment opportunities to the youth in the State, he added.

On being asked whether the Aadhaar-enabled biometric Attendance system would be successful in the State or not, the Chief Minister said that the State Government is committed for the success of any scheme or programme implemented by it.
