Using the extensive Mee-Seva (electronic delivery of public documents) network, the Andhra Pradesh Government will soon build a database of over 25 lakh students (Class 10 and above) in the State. The Revenue officials will carry out a door-to-door campaign across the State to collect the data, capture information on caste, nativity, income (of parents), residence and date of birth. “This will facilitate the officials to deliver the integrated Caste, Nativity and Date of birth certificates to the students as they apply for education courses and jobs. They can get these certificates at the Mee Seva centres and need not pay a visit to revenue offices,” N. Raghuveera Reddy, Minister for Revenue, said. About 60 per cent of the 28 lakh requests received by Mee Seva centres sought these certificates. Mee Seva centres have already generated 1.26 lakh such certificates so far. — Our Bureau
