Heilongjiang renews household registration system
Around 5.1 million rural people living near Harbin, the capital of Heilongjiang province, can now remove agricultural identity in their household registration after the provincial government announced system changes, on Nov 3, by abolishing an old dual-household system that has divided people into urban or rural residents, as of Nov 1, 2014.
The idea is to increase social equality and gradually remove all differences across China. Harbin now has 5.1 million rural people out of a total population of 9.63 million. Rural people can change their designation at the local police station as soon as the local government works out all the details.
The autumn schedule for power grid maintenance in Harbin, Northeast China’s Heilongjiang province concluded on Oct 30.
The High People’s Court of Heilongjiang province officially launched Thunderbolt Action.
About 10 government departments in Daoli district, Harbin, Heilongjiang province, carried out joint enforcement June 1 to remove more than 20 illegal constructions with a total area of over 2000 square meters to advance an expropriation project.
Harbin has seen a dramatic reduction in traffic congestion, according to statistics released by Amap, a Chinese navigation service provider.
