- Delhi government will soon introduce ‘self-attestation’ and do away with the need of filing affidavits or getting various certificates attested by gazetted officers and MLAs as part of its efforts to bring a “paradigm” shift in governance.
- This move 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.
- CM Delhi, has said that government wants to bring transparency in governance and the reform measure is being initiated to rid the system of corruption.
- The AAP government’s proposal in this regard comes two months after the Centre 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.
