Theekshana – The UCSC Company was awarded the e-Swabhimani 2010 award for the Birth, Marriage and Death Certificates Digitization Project under e-Government 2010 category at the National Best e-Content Award ceremony conducted by the Information and Communication Agency of Sri Lanka.
Not too long ago the very idea of getting a birth certificate over the counter would have been anything but a dream. But, today it is actually happening – be it Birth, Marriage or Death certificates – copies can actually be obtained over the counter. This project was carried out in collaboration with the ICT Agency of Sri Lanka, and it covers 13 of the 24 districts and is made possible through the Lanka Government Network which connects 375 public institutions and is a testament to what is possible through seamless governance.
E-Swabhimani 2010 attracted nearly 163 nominations from all parts of the country.
The event was held on Tuesday, 09th November 2010 at Atrium Lobby- Cinnamon Grand, Colombo.
