After the recent implementation of the Maharashtra Right to Services act, the food and civil supplies department on Tuesday notified 10 services to end red tape. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had promised that the citizens will be promised delivery of services from the government in a speedy, time-bound and hassle-free manner soon after he took over office back in October 2014.”We found that for a common man, even routine information is not available owing to red tape and corruption at all levels. We are determined to tackle this problem and that too in a time-bound period,” he had said.

As per an order issued by food and civil supplies secretary Deepak Kapoor, now a new ration card will be issued within 30 days from the date of application and correction of name in the ration will be completed in three days.

Failure to meet the deadline will invite a fine ranging from Rs 500 – 5000 to be levied on the officer incharge and will be decided by the first appellate authority. The act states that the departments will have to provide services to the applicants within the given time period, even if the application has to be rejected, it will have to be done within the prescribed period and the applicant should be informed in writing.

The Chief Minister has said that while the home, urban development, forest and food and civil supplies departments have been already notified the services, all the remaining departments will be notified by July 27.
