Digital technology to make ULBs more effective, says Haryana ULB Minister

To implement the digital system, a committee be constituted so that the on-going development works in the cities of the state can be digitally monitored

To make the department more effective, Haryana urban local bodies (ULB) minister Anil Vij on Monday directed the officials of the ULB department to use digital technology.

He said to implement the digital system, a committee be constituted so that the on-going development works in the cities of the state can be digitally monitored. Vij was presiding over the review meeting of the officers of ULB department.

For the on-going developmental works in the cities of the state, he said a transparent plan should be formulated and random checking of development works should also be done. He said digital technology should also be fully utilised under the digital scheme to be made so that the services of municipal bodies can be made available to the people sitting at home. He further added that a time limit should be fixed for all the on-going developmental works related to the ULB department and if any contractor does not complete the work within the stipulated time, then action should be taken against him by imposing a penalty. Similarly, there should be a third party investigation into the developmental works being carried out, wherein technical experts should also be involved, he added.

Vij also said the contractors engaged in cleaning work should be checked to manage the work in the cities efficiently. Similarly, back-up teams for cleaning and lighting should be made according to each city and town so that the works of local bodies can be effectively dealt with. While giving instructions to the officers, Vij said the Swachh App should also be handled in an effective manner.

The ULB minister also said a website should be developed to monitor the on-going projects. He suggested a system should be prepared for registering the grievances of the people. Reacting to it, the officers said a portal called Nagar Darshan is being built for people to register their grievances.

Vij also directed the officers to make proper use of the existing infrastructure to increase the income of the department. The officials apprised the minister about the new digital technology being considered for the disposal of solid waste. The officials also said from the financial year 2022-23, the audit of CAG will also be done in the municipal bodies.
