Mining Department organises e-Challan, e-Marketplace Awareness Meet at Jammu

JAMMU : Mining Department led by Secretary to Government, Amit Sharma today organ- ised an awareness-cum- interaction meet at Jammu to ensure 100% implemen- tation of e-Challan in all- important winter capital district of the Union Territory. He was accompa- nied with Director Geology & Mining O.P Bhagat, District Mineral Officer Dr Gulshan and others during this awareness meet with varied stakeholders includ- ing Crusher Unit Holders and Mineral Dealer License Holders. During the meet, Secretary Mining Amit Sharma shared the perspec-
tive and vision of the UT Government led by LG Manoj Sinha and Chief Secretary Dr Arun K Mehta to bring total transparency in working of the depart- ment wherein e-Challan is one of the important found- ing pillar of same. He fur-
ther advised that all endeav- ours should be made by multiple stakeholders to encourage public for pur- chasing mined material through e-marketplace which is readily available at G2B2C website “geolo-”
as it would give total autonomy, choice and flexi- bility to the consumers for placing order, making e- payment and getting deliv- ery of materials at doorsteps without human interface like it happens at Amazon and Flipkart e- Marketplaces.
Secretary Amit Sharma also mentioned that clear- cut directions have been given to all twenty DMOs of the UT to create special cells in their respective offices to give round the clock (24×7) approval to e- Challans on department’s G2B2C portal so that the work doesn’t suffer due to its non-issuance during the odd hours.
