D.Sumiyabazar: Digitalization is a key factor in reducing corruption and bureaucracy

Governor of the capital city and Mayor of Ulaanbaatar D.Sumiyabazar and district governors worked at the General Authority for State Registration of Mongolia (GASR) on April 5.

The total population of Ulaanbaatar city has reached 1.8 million including temporary residents. The number of people served by a district registration office is 4-5 times higher than in one province. Therefore, there is an urgent need to digitalize the services of the state registration authority.

Registration offices provided 2.15 million services digitally which saved citizens' MNT 30 billion.

The Governor noted that Ulaanbaatar reached a level of metropolitan in terms of population, while underlining the necessity to strengthen the coherence of government organizations. “Digitalization is a key factor in reducing corruption and bureaucracy. Registration and taxes must always be affiliated” he added.

Chairman of GASR D.Delgersaikhan said “GASR distributes, stores, and processes the largest database in Mongolia. 42 systems containing archive, entity, citizenship, and properties are operating. GASR currently provides 70 types of registration related inquiries, of which 50 of the services have been made available on E-Mongolia system. Moreover, plans are underway to provide citizens with an electronic signature alongside opening up opportunity for citizens to obtain necessary information with fingerprints and QR codes”.

It was noted that a new type of public service kiosk was introduced this year, which was experimentally piloted in the Chingeltei district and two provinces. The introduction of the new public service kiosk is significant in enabling citizens to obtain 18 types of inquiries including civil state registration, state registration of legal entities, and state registration of property.
