Odisha abolishes solvency certificate; launches PAUTI App

Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Saturday announced the abolition of the solvency certificate. 

Under 5T, documents like income certificate, residence certificate, and all miscellaneous certificates can be availed online without any fees and on the basis of self-certification.  

In case of death of government servants, no legal heir certificate is necessary to get govt dues, said a statement from CMO.

Various miscellaneous and Caste certificates can now be applied online http://edistrict.odisha.gov.in from anywhere anytime. 

Apart from this, citizens can visit any Common Service Centre (CSC) of their choice and can apply to any Tahasil. They can also download Certificates from the portal or Mail box.

This will directly help students and youth communities to get Certificates without visiting Government offices.

This would directly benefit about 5 million applicants each year. Now Citizens have the freedom not to visit government offices to obtain Miscellaneous and Caste Certificates.

The government has abolished all types of fees for grant of Miscellaneous and Caste certificates.

However, the Common Service Centre charges for application through CSC shall be applicable in case the application is made through CSC.

To implement the Chief Minister’s mantra of “Trusting in the goodness of people rather than the integrity of processes”, Revenue and DM Department has framed Rules for grant of Resident and Income Certificates based on self-declaration of the applicants.

Revenue and DM Department has facilitated the online payment of land revenue. The ePAUTI Portal (https://odishalandrevenue.nic.in) was launched by the Chief Minister on 15th August 2019 under 5T initiatives.

In order to make it further user-friendly, Mobile App called PAUTI has been developed. This PAUTI App can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.

The Pauti app will help the payment of land revenue which will help millions.
