Jammu, August 2: The UT administration has granted over four lakh domicile certificates in over a month.

“So far, over four lakh domicile certificates have been granted to applicants. Though a time period of 15 days has been fixed for issuing a certificate to an applicant, we have asked all revenue officials, including tehsildars, to complete the process within two days,” Pawan Kotwal, Principal Secretary, Revenue Department, J&K, told The Tribune.

The region-wise data with grant to the issuance of the domicile certificate was not readily available.

On a query regarding the rejection of a large number of online applications, a senior revenue officer said they had taken up the issue with the Principal Secretary, IT Department, who had assured them to expand the system. — TNS
