The MeeSeva centres which relentlessly helped to get their birth certificate, death certificate and other corrections in the documents are no longer available to the citizen. In the line of the decision taken by the state government, all the MeeSeva franchisees have stopped delivering services from Friday. With the government recently introducing the Village and Ward Secretariats, running hundreds of MeeSeva units has reportedly become a burden on the state treasury after which the proposal of lifting up the services came to limelight.
The government has come up with the idea of equipping the ward secretariats with necessary digital assistance so that all the services can be offered in the respective wards and villages. However, this has received flak from almost 40,000 MeeSeva employees who held a protest before the shutdown offices on Friday. President and general secretary of the MeeSeva Operators Union K.Yugandhar and S, Bhanumurthy respectively have announced that they would go on for a state-wide indefinite strike from Friday. Apparently, about 11,000 operators and more than 35,000 employees across the state are expected to take part in the strike.
