Bhilai, June 11: For making the e-stamps easily available to the common people, the Inspector General of Registration and Superintendent of Stamps had authorized eight banks for selling the non-judicial e-stamps in the district. Besides these, two centers of Stock Holding Corporation of India are also providing e-stamps to the people. But unfortunately the common people are unable to purchase the e-stamps from these authorized banks. Citing some or the other reason, these banks are refusing to provide e-stamps to the common people. A delegation of Aam Admi Party submitted at complaint in this regard to the district collector seeking immediate action. AAP District President Meharban Singh, Shashi Yadav, Rauf Ansari, Waddu Alam, Tara, Amjad, Churaman, Subrat Vishwas, Harish, Nageshwar and others were present.
Meharban Singh informed that a list of places where e-stamps are available has been displayed at the office of Registrar in Durg. AAP team visited all these spots and found that the e-stamps were unavailable at almost all the banks.
At DCC Bank in Durg, the officials replied that e-stamps are not sold here; Bank of India officials stated that in case of emergency they can provide one or two stamps as selling stamps is not their duty; at Punjab National Bank the officials right away stated that e-stamps are not sold here; the machine is out of order for the past several months at Central Bank of India; e-stamp selling was discontinued several months ago at Bank of Baroda; e-stamp was not available at DCC Bank Branch of Patan and Bank of India in Dhamdha. AAP demanded to ensure availability of e-stamps at all these places.
