The Andhra Pradesh Government is expanding its Mee Seva scheme across the state to provide greater electronic access for people to government services.

The scheme was launched in Chittoor district in November last year, with 12 services on offer, including revenue department and registration services. Currently, 3,500 centres are being operated by the state.

Ponnala Lakshmaiah, Minister for Information Technology, said efforts were on to add another 1,500 outlets by December this year.

“Subsequently, we will have a network of 6,000 centres,” he told mediapersons here today.

The Government will also take the total number of services provided through the scheme from the current 35 to 100 by that time.

New services will include municipal-level services such as water connection and police services like filing of FIRs or requesting for ‘bandobast’.

“Today an average of 51,000 transactions is happening through the Mee Seva counters. We expect this to grow to two lakh a day when the full infrastructure for the scheme is in place,” Lakshmaiah said.

He said the scheme had caught the attention of the Centre, which is keen on working out a similar scheme for other states.
