Prime News, Nation, (Amaravati), January 19:-The Telagau Desam Party (TDP)-led Andhra Pradesh government is planning to introduce new date of birth, caste and place of birth certificates, which will be valid for life.
In a secretaries’ meeting at the secretariat here on Friday, Chief Secretary Anil Chandra Punetha asked officials to issue necessary government order within fifteen days. He said that the new life-long valid certificates are being issued in order to spare students the inconvenience of issuing new certificates every year.
The chief secretary said that the date of birth certificate should be issued for life-long valuation as there would be no change and the income certificate should be issued for every four years as it is subject to change.
Punetha asked officials to place the necessary files before the cabinet meeting on January 21 for approval. Secretary of Information and Public Relations Ramanjaneyulu hailed the decision, saying that the decision of the state government would provide great relief to people.
The Chief Secretary directed officials to act in coordination with residence commissioner of the Andhra Pradesh Bhavan at New Delhi to secure the release of funds due from the central government.
Andhra Pradesh Bhavan residence commissioner Praveen Prakash confirmed that efforts are underway to get the release of funds from the central government during the parliamentary session in the first week of February.
