More efficient e-Govt services
Thu, May 20, 2010
my paper

By Sia Ling Xin

THOSE who submit forms to government agencies online will no longer have to retype their particulars each time they do so.

This will become possible, thanks to amendments to the Electronic Transactions Act passed in Parliament yesterday.

The changes will allow information to be submitted to public agencies through electronic forms that do not have to resemble physical forms.

The agencies can create electronic forms such that an applicant can carry out "multiple e-Government transactions from a single point of access", Acting Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts Lui Tuck Yew said.

This will "facilitate more effective delivery of the e-Government services in Singapore", he said.

The Coroners Bill was also passed in Parliament yesterday.

It changes the nature of a coroner's inquiry from a fault-finding to a fact-finding one, and allows the coroner to appoint experts to help him with the hearing.
