Srinagar: To make the services of Power Development Department (PDD) easily accessible to the people, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha Wednesday launched the portal of Electrical Inspection Wing, Jammu.

An official spokesman in a statement issued here said that highlighting the key features of newly launched portal, the LG observed that the initiative would make the electrical inspection process more convenient for the public. The whole end-to-end process, that is, right from the application stage, depositing inspection fees, fixing date of inspection to the issuance of fitness certificate has been converted into online mode, he said.

This will also ensure the issuance of fitness certificate in a time specific schedule, thus enabling the commissioning of installations for public use within the given timeframe, said the LG.

Rohit Kansal, Principal Secretary, PDD said that the applicant could log on to www.eijammu.in and apply for the inspection process.

Time-bound procedure has also been established wherein approval and denial should be conveyed to the applicant through the website within 12 days.

The initiative also aims at rectifying the shortcomings pointed out by the Electrical Inspection Agency within specified period in respect of a consumer after which the e-fitness certificate shall be issued by merely going through the rectified photographs uploaded by the applicant, without the need for re-inspection, thereby saving time.

For avoiding any electrical hazard and danger to life and property a provision has been kept for the public to upload picture of any unsafe electrical installation, if they notice in their area, for immediate rectification by the utility staff, it was informed.

The Lt Governor directed for spreading the word out so as to bring awareness amongst the public for getting their installations inspected for ensuring safety. Baseer Ahmad Khan, Advisor to Lt Governor; Arun Kumar Mehta, Chief Secretary; Nitishwar Kumar, Principal Secretary to Lt Governor and other senior officers were present on the occasion at the civil secretariat.
