Delhi Government Doorstep Delivery Services
Accessing government services has consistently posed a challenge for citizens throughout India. Historical issues such as long queues at government offices, inconsistent information regarding required documentation, and the prevalent practice of offering petty bribes as a so-called “convenience fee” have hindered smooth access to public services. A survey conducted during the project’s feasibility stage revealed that over 50% of respondents had to visit a government office multiple times to avail themselves of a single service, while approximately 30% had to rely on intermediaries to access public services.
To overcome these obstacles and ensure an accessible public service delivery system, the Government of NCT (National Capital Territory) of Delhi introduced the innovative concept of “Doorstep Delivery of Public Services.” The project was executed in three phases: the first phase encompassed 30 services in September 2018, followed by an additional 40 services in March 2019, and the final 30 services in September 2019, making a total of 100 services.
This transformative governance reform revolutionized the traditional model of public service delivery. Instead of citizens having to endure the hassle of visiting government offices, the Delhi government decided to take the services directly to the citizens’ doorsteps.
From the very beginning, the Dialogue and Development Commission of Delhi (DDC) has been involved in advising the Administrative Reforms Department during the conceptualization phase of the project. Since its launch in 2019, the DDC has continuously supported the project’s implementation and provided valuable guidance in tackling emerging challenges.
Process of Doorstep Delivery Services
To access any of the 100 services, citizens can book an appointment slot for a home visit by dialing the toll-free number 1076, which connects them to a centralized call center.
A Mobile Sahayak is designated to handle the service request. The Mobile Sahayak visits the citizen according to the scheduled appointment, collects and uploads all the required documents, and submits them to the relevant government department, charging a nominal fee of only INR 50.
Throughout the process, citizens can track the status of their service request using a unique application number. Furthermore, the centralized call center has an organized system to handle all complaints from citizens, ensuring that any grievances received are promptly redirected to the relevant stakeholders for timely resolution.
It has been observed that applications received through the Doorstep Delivery mode have significantly lower rejection rates. This is attributed to the meticulous review conducted by well-trained Mobile Sahayaks, who thoroughly check the applications before introducing them into the system.
