The 'district e-service centre', the first of its kind in the country, was launched in Jessore Thursday through a function ushering in a new hope of taking all services of the district administration to the doorsteps of the people, reports BSS.

"In line with the present government's plan to build Digital Bangladesh, the centre was launched in Jessore to reach all kinds of service of the district administration to the doorsteps of the people," Whip of the Jatiya Sangsad Sheikh Abdul Wahab told the inaugural function as the chief guest.

He expressed his hope that such a centre would help lessen harassment of the people in getting services and information of the local administration side by side with materialising Vision-2021 of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

"The centre would ensure that all services and information of the administration are available through direct application or postal service even on online," said Md Nazrul Islam Khan, national project director of the UNDP-funded Access to Information (A2I) Programme under the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), which set up the centre in the district.

Parliament members Mostafa Faruq Md, Khan Tipu Sultan and Khaledur Rahman Tito were present at the function as special guests.

The function was also addressed, among others, by Khulna Divisional Commissioner Mashiur Rahman, UNDP Assistant Country Director KM Morshed, Police Super Didar Ahmed and local Press Club President Ekram-ud-Dowla.

Deputy Commissioner of Jessore Nurul Amin presided over the function, while Field Expert of A2I Programme Mostafizur Rahman highlighted different aspects of the programme.

To get services or information of local administration, people have been requested to contact the website of district web portal www.dcjessore.gov.bd or phone No 0421-65044 or 01753- 171797.
