Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Tuesday launched a virtual police station, at the State Crime Records Bureau in Bhubaneswar to facilitate online registration of FIR in cases of unknown motor vehicle theft.
The Chief Minister also launched the medico-legal opinion system and road accident case document module at Lok Seva Bhawan in the capital, in a bid to reduce human interface with government offices.
CM Patnaik said that the government is committed to providing citizen-centric governance under 5-T. These initiatives will assist the citizens by reducing the need to visit police stations, he added.
Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on January 20, launched an online module to facilitate payment of property tax. He also launched an initiative - Municipal Premier League (MPL) - in order to facilitate urban local bodies to enhance their revenue collection.
The name MPL has been inspired by the Indian Premier League (IPL), and its main objective is to motivate tax officials, recognise their efforts and improve internal revenue generation.
This is an idea of conducting competition among tax collecting officials of nine urban local bodies (ULBs), five municipal corporations and four municipalities, where the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) is being implemented, an official said.
