During a meeting on Tuesday, Director-General of the authority Ali Mohammad Al Khouri said the e-form strategy should be modified to facilitate the application of a “unified procedure” across organisations in the future.

“However, the review process should not interfere with the current functioning and service delivery of the organisations concerned,” he told the meeting, which was held to discuss the progress on the technological projects of the authority.

Al Khouri stressed the importance and critical nature of the unified e-form as a service point that will reflect positively on all stakeholders and departments concerned, thereby improving the quality and efficiency of services provided to the public.

He stressed the need to hold workshops in the future in corporation with relevant ministries in order to educate all concerned on the technical aspects of the services provided under the unified e-form project.

The meeting also discussed the nature of work planned in the next phase to electronically link the various institutions involved in updating data for the UAE population register. Meanwhile, the Higher Management Committee, during a meeting held earlier, was briefed about the status of the 17,000 transactions for identity cards that were returned to the typing offices for the respective applicants to correct imprecise data or add missing information.

All these applicants have been sent text messages to check with their typing offices within 10 days for correcting and completing the e-forms.

They will also be sent reminders with a final grace period of five weeks to check with the typing offices. Otherwise, their transactions will be cancelled.

Another meeting of the committee agreed to cancel 56,000 transactions of applicants who either failed to abide by the second appointment set for them or those who did not check with the typing offices for modifying their imprecise data given in the e-forms. — nissar@khaleejtimes.com
