The automation of all birth certificates of the Moneragala District has been completed.

Accordingly, residents of the Moneragala District are now able to obtain certified copies of birth, marriage and death certificates within a few minutes, says the ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA).

ICTA Chief Executive Officer Reshan Dewapura says that this facility is provided to coincide with the ‘Dayata Kirula 2011’ national exhibition.

The project was launched under the guidance of Telecommunication and Information Technology Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya in the Moneragala District last December.

The ICTA CEO said that 570,000 birth certificates of the Moneragala District had been automated.

The first certified copy of the birth certificate under this project will be issued at the ICTA exhibition stall of the Buttala ‘Dayata Kirula 2011’ exhibition premises on Saturday. Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya and Uva Province Chief Minister Shashendra Rajapaksa will participate in the occasion.

ICTA says that in addition the public will be able to see several projects that have been launched for the empowerment of the people by the use of ICT at the ICTA exhibition stall at ‘Dayata Kirula 2011’.

ICTA has taken steps to enable people to see in a practical way how ICT has been used to make public service efficient.

Reports say that at the exhibition the public will be able to see live demonstrations of the service rendered to the people through the Government Information Service (1919) and the ‘Nenasala’ wisdom centres.

The ‘Dayata Kirula 2011’ national exhibition will be held in Buttala from 4 to 11 February.
