Keep Track Of Infrastructure Projects In Delhi Through An App | Delhi News
NEW DELHI: Delhi government will soon start geo-mapping its capital projects to enable people to keep a track of their progress. It will also start taking feedback from people on their experiences in availing various schemes rolled out by the AAP government. Both the initiatives will be part of the ambitious outcome budget reports and will ensure “full transparency” in capital expenditure works of the government.
Delhi’s outcome budget is an exercise that links the output of various government schemes, programmes and projects to quantifiable outcomes. In its recent outcome budget, the government mapped 567 schemes with 2,220 quantifiable output and 1,549 outcome indicators.
Delhi Dialogue and Development Commission (DDC) vice-chairman Jasmine Shah said the government will soon roll out a mobile application that will have the geo-locations of all its infrastructure projects. The app will also include the features of the project, the details of its nodal departments and officers, and its timeline. “This will help us bring more transparency in our development projects and welfare schemes,” Shah said.
The DDC vice-chairman said the mobile application will be ready within three months.
To ensure that the people are reaping the benefits of welfare schemes, DDC will also start real-time monitoring of the feedback from the beneficiaries. The reports of the department and the feedback will be compared to confirm that the programmes and schemes were on track.
While the government’s public grievance system records the feedback to check for deficiencies, officials said there was little monitoring on the deliverables on a day-to-day basis. “The people who avail the services will be randomly selected and asked about their experiences on a day-to-day basis,” Shah said, adding that a major part of the consultation has already been done.
