The CSC firms will monitor the urban centres. "The incentive for the internet cafes providing these services will be the Rs 10 fee. Additionally, the 26 e-governance schemes (such as issuing birth, death, caste certificates, etc.), which are currently being provided by CSCs, may also be extended to them (for which they can charge a fee)," Sinha said.
The National Informatics Centre (NIC) will design the software on which the service providers will work. To accelerate and bring more transparency in the system, the applicant will also be issued a tracking number for his application. "The delivery of EPICs should not take more than 10-15 days," Sinha said. These rural and urban centres will also act as a medium to rectify errors in previously issued electoral cards.
The commission is hopeful of starting the first of such centres by January 15. "We plan on issuing the first batch of such cards on January 25, National Voters' Day," Sinha said.
