A few tweaks are required to the online registration system mandated by the Meghalaya Residents Safety and Security Act (MRSSA) but once these are made a pilot project will be rolled out.
The government was given a presentation on the registration system a few weeks back, Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma informed today.
“Based on that, we have asked for some more changes so that the system becomes more user-friendly and as soon as that is done, we plan to take up two to three localities on a pilot basis,” the CM said.
Sangma also informed that the government has been committed to the implementation of the MRSSA and the task forces in all the districts have been constituted. Entry point facilitation centres in Umling, Ri-Bhoi, and Mendipathar, North Garo Hills, are already up and running, while those in Ratacherra, East Jaiñtia Hills, and Bajengdoba, North Garo Hills, are under construction.
Meanwhile, on the MRSSA (Amendment) Bill, which was sent by the former Governor, Tatagatha Roy, to the central government for its views, the Chief Minister said that discussions between sitting Governor Satya Pal Malik and the Centre are going on.
“But we strongly feel that, while the discussions go on, it is important that there is already an existing act and therefore provisions of that act must be implemented,” Sangma said of the MRSSA in its original form.
