Deputy Commissioner, Ramban Mussarat Islam today launched e-Suttra online facility for providing a single window system facility for safe and secure transportation of animals.
SSP Ramban Mohita Sharma; ADC Harbans Lal Sharma; CAHO, DSHO, Dy.SP Hqtr; DIO NIC and other concerned officers were present on the occasion. The Deputy Commissioner said that the portal would help in providing transport permits for animal transportation.
He added that it has inbuilt tracking facilities and would ensure time-bound disposal. The system has been designed on the direction of the Government to ensure the smooth movement of tribal families to the upper reaches of J&K.
Animal Husbandry, Police, and Transport departments share the online information to provide single window clearances and permits to applicants. It curtails the human interface thus saving time.
The initiative has been taken to bring transparency and facilitate hassle-free annual movement of nomads. Notably, the portal is equally responsive to the need of “Dera” as well as “Non-Dera” movement of animals.
“Only fit vehicles will be allowed to transport animals ensuring the safety of animals and insurance for the owner in case of any unforeseen incident. e-suttra (sutra.in) will be a boon for the tribal community as well as non-tribal.
