The chief minister also directed officials to take necessary steps for the online registration and mutation of property.
Yogi directed the Urban Development department to expedite the process of providing all services online. He asked the Health and Family Welfare department to provide services relating to nursing home and ultrasound online by October 15. 
Yogi directed the Housing department to simplify the process and make it people-friendly. He said the process of issuance of licence for the sale of crackers be also made online.
