Gruha Jyothi: Slow server hits process of online applications

June 18, 2023

Mysore/Mysuru: Technical glitches marred the online process of uploading applications for Gruha Jyothi scheme to avail the benefit of free 200 units of power, one of the five guarantees announced by Congress Government in its election manifesto, on its opening day, at KarnatakaOne and MysoreOne centres, in the city this morning.

As the server went kaput, the people who had gathered to file the application through Seva Sindhu portal from 11 am, at KarnatakaOne and MysoreOne Centres at various parts of the district had to return home disappointed. Those who tried to upload the application on mobile phone or laptop from the comfort of their houses also faced the same problem.

There are 46 centres including KarnatakaOne, MysoreOne and franchises in the district including 16 in the city and 30 in rural parts of the district. The city has six KarnatakaOne and MysoreOne centres on Seshadri Iyer Road, Nazarbad, Siddarthanagar, Jayanagar, Gokulam and Ramakrishnanagar.  That apart, there are 10 franchise holders in the city. In the rural parts, six Government-owned centres are functioning, apart from 24 franchises.

Three dedicated desks have been set up at each centre to upload the applications. The applicants will have to provide the RR number, Aadhaar details and cellphone number to upload the application, which takes not less than two minutes. The service charge of Rs. 20 will be collected towards each applications.

Apart from these centres, the applications can also be submitted at Nada Kacheris, Gram Panchyats and Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Corporation (CESC) Limited Offices too.

    This is Modi’s Tech India! All India is good at is to deploy countless IT Techie coolies to do the cheap program coding work for Western companies, but paid in worthless Indian Rupees.

  2. Ajay says:

    Sad state of affairs in the so called – IT capital of India!

    By announcing freebies like free electricity, cash for housewives and unemployed graduates, the government has set a dangerous precedent. One never knows, there might be undesirable consequence of these freebies in future. When something is free people become careless and do not value that thing. This is human tendency. Just take the example of Jio SIMs. PEOPLE ARE MADLY ADDICTED TO THIER PHONES NOW. I don’t say everyone got addicted due to Jio SIM but Jio definitely changed the way Indians consumed internet data. When Jio announced free data, other companies started giving out similar offers out of fear of losing customers. Similar situation will arise in political space also. Other political parties will dole out similar benefits out of fear of losing elections.

    Hey Arun
    You are a typical Indian scoundrel, who does not care for others’ suffering. The women and the unemployed graduates, are victims of the society created by selfish thugs like you.
    Just look at your English usage: “One never knows, there might be undesirable consequence of these freebies in future.”. If no one knows, best for you to shut up. ” don’t say everyone got addicted due to Jio SIM ..”. There is no need to use ” due” there.
    So, you want these low income people to starve, because, you are arguing that they will use money on mobile phones.
    You must be the small brain Indian IT Teche coolie who is addicted to drugs and alcohol, because, you have got Rupees paid for your coolie work on program codes. I find IT Techie coolies are the least infomed as their small brains are focused towards generating program codes in IT sweat shops.
