The Ministry of Telecommunication and Information Technology announced plans of initiating a program to enable a faster service of issuing of birth, death and marriage certificates through providing necessary details via mobile phones.

Telecommunications and Information Technology Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitya said that under the proposed project, once the details for a birth, death or marriage certificate is provided to the Government Information Centre via mobile, the relevant divisional secretariats would take measures to mail the certificates straight to homes.

“Under this program there would be no need to visit the divisional secretariats concerning birth, death or marriage certificates because providing the relevant details as well as the payment will be enabled to be done via mobile phone and the relevant service providers,” Minister added. 

He said that the program will commence as a pilot project in the divisional secretariats of Colombo, Kegalle and Moneragala very soon. (Lakna Paranamanna)
