10.10.2019

The government proposed to reduce another 28 types of information certificates for citizens. This was stated by Assemgul Baltasheva, Chairman of the Management Board of the Government for Citizens State Corporation, during her speech at the presentation of digital innovations of electronic government.

According to Baltasheva, following the address certificate, such types of services as issuing a certificate of absence / availability of real estate, certificates from psycho, drug and anti TB dispensaries, certificates of registration as unemployed, etc. can disappear. “Annually, in PSCs of Kazakhstan received more than 10 million address certificates per year. They were asked at employment, for registration of children in schools, kindergartens, etc. The cancellation of address certificates means that now Kazakhstanis will visit PSCs 10 million times less, “she added.

The question of the exclusion of these services from the registry will be submitted to the Interdepartmental Commission for the Optimization of Public Services. Based on the results, a decision will be made which of these services will be transferred to the category of information, and which will disappear altogether. These types of certificates are administered by the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Defense, the General Prosecutor's Office, etc. Only ten departments.

Recall, earlier the Minister of Digital Development, Innovation and the Aerospace Industry Askar Zhumagaliyev came up with the initiative to abolish the address certificate. The Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan supported this idea and integrated its databases with other government agencies. So, from November 1, citizens will be able to verify their registration place in their personal account on the electronic government portal egov.kz.

By the way, the government for citizens annually provides over 30 million public services to Kazakhstanis, more than half of them provide informational reports. It is planned that their abolition will facilitate the life of service recipients, reduce the load on public service centers and reduce paper circulation.
