Let's make Delhi smart city

Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on September 11 pitched for the industry's participation in making the national capital a 'smart city' while stressing that departmental procedures were being "simplified" by the AAP government to ensure "ease of doing business".

"We talk of smart cities. We talk of building 1,00, 200 smart cities. Let's make the nation's capital a smart city first. I invite you all to participate. the government will do its part with complete honesty," Kejriwal said at a Confederation of Indian Industry event on September 11.

As an example of efforts to make documentation and procedures simple and corruption-free, the CM informed that the Delhi government will soon introduce "self-attestation" and do away with the need of filing affidavits or getting various certificates attested from officials of a specific rank. He added that this measure would bring relief to the general public who have to go through a tedious process of getting birth, death or marriage certificates signed by officers of gazetted rank or MLAs.

"Let us believe in our people. You (people) give us affidavits and go for self-certification. You will see a complete paradigm shift in getting certificates in Delhi soon," Kejriwal said.

The AAP government's proposal in this regard, however, comes two months after the Center decided to do away with the need of filing affidavits from a gazetted officer or a notary for a big chunk of government-related work and promote self-attestation of documents instead.

Kejriwal also warned traders against tax evasion. "We have put an end to routine VAT raids. But the level of evasion is very high. In such cases, we will ensure punishment and make an example out of such people," he said.

To facilitate business in Delhi and prevent evasion of taxes, the Delhi government has decided to introduce a new online form-Delhi Sugam-2-with effect from September 15. This DS2 form has been introduced in place of T-2 form.
