Right To Service Act Implemented In Bihar

Right To Service Act
Right to Service Acts 2011 (Public services is a term usually used to mean services provided by government to its citizens, either directly (through the public sector/Govt. Sector) or by financing private provision of services.)

Governor of Bihar has approved the Right to Service Act. This act is first of its kind in India, which is expected curb corrupt practices in the State Government.

The services demanded by the people from government offices across the state that have been considered in the proposed Act include the issue of licences (days for driving licence, shop-opening licences, etc), certificates (caste, birth and death, residence, income, vehicle fitness, oldage pension), and police verification reports needed for passports, arms licences and joining government jobs.The Act makes it mandatory for officials to release driving licences and those for opening PDS shops and fertiliser shops in 30 days. Certificates for caste, residence, income, etc have to be issued in 15 days while 10 days have been given for the issue of vehicle fitness certificates. Police verification reports, a most vexing problem for ordinary people, have to be released in a week. Post-mortem reports have to be issued in just three days.

Most importantly, officials failing to keep the stipulated deadline in rendering these services would be fined at the rate of `250 per day up to the highest sum of `5,000, which would be deducted from their salaries and such officials would face departmental action.

Services, which come under this Act in Bihar State, are following :
