People in Delhi will get doorstep delivery of 40 government services, including obtaining a marriage certificate, driving license, and new water connection, from Monday.

Delhi government approved Administrative Reforms proposal in July
In July, the Delhi government had approved the Administrative Reforms proposal to give the work under the doorstep delivery scheme to a company, which will be an intermediary agency, to execute the project in the national capital.
According to the plan, Mobile Sahayaks (the facilitators) will be hired through the agency that would also set up call centers.
These are the services covered under the govt scheme
Various certificates such as caste, new water connection, income, driving license, ration card, domicile, marriage registration, duplicate RC and change of address in RC, among others, will be covered under the scheme.
How does the doorstep delivery scheme work?
If a person wants to apply for a driving license, he or she would have to call a designated call center and give the details.
After that, the agency would assign a Mobile Sahayak, who will visit the applicant's residence and get the required details and documents.
The applicant will have to visit the Motor Licensing Office (MLO) once for a driving test.
Mobile Sahayaks would be equipped with all necessary equipment: Sisodia
In November last year, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had said Mobile Sahayak would be equipped with all necessary equipment such as biometric devices and a camera, adding that for doorstep delivery of services, the applicant would be charged a nominal fee.
