In order to extend the facility for booking community halls of Cantonment Boards online without any physical application, a ‘Community Hall Booking module’ has now been made live on the eChhawani portal for greater ease of living for Cantonment residents. The facility is being provided in paperless, faceless and cashless environment i.e. the applicant will be able to book the community hall online, make payment in digital mode and track the status of his application.
The status of application will be communicated to the applicant at each stage through SMS & email and the confirmation of allotment will also be conveyed digitally. The release of the module on the portal will provide a transparent & hassle free environment to the Cantonment residents.
e-Chhawani is a citizen centric project of Ministry of Defence as part of comprehensive e-enablement of Cantonment Boards to provide online citizen services to more than 20 lakh people across 62 Cantonments in the country through a multi-tenancy central platform. The common platform (https://echhawani.gov.in) provides centralised access to civic services to residents of all Cantonment Boards along with all relevant information in a simple, easy to understand and effective manner.
Various citizen centric services have been released on the portal and have received encouraging response from the residents. These services include grant of Trade licences, renewal of leases, water and sewerage connections, Births and Deaths certificates, OPD appointments in cantonment hospitals, online deposit of taxes and fees and lodging grievances for quick and timely redressal.
