Keen on getting “appreciation” for the work done by it before the civic body polls, the MCD now plans to put up boards in every ward with details of development projects taken up under the councillors’ local area fund.
“During last four years of BJP rule, MCD has done a lot of development works in various areas. Along with these, more than Rs 1000 crore were spent by 272 councillors under the discretionary funds in their wards,” MCD Works Committee Chairman Jagdish Mamgain said.
He said due to multiplicity of authorities in Delhi, sometimes MCD’s achievements “do not receive appreciation”.
MCD will put a sign board in each ward displaying information about the development works taken up under the councillors’ discretionary fund, the BJP corporator said.
“The board installed in each ward will contain the total allocated amount, details of the work recommended by the councillor, total amount sanctioned and spent, the name of the contractor, the date of beginning and date of completion of work,” he said.
This will make the people aware about MCD works and area residents and RWAs will be able to monitor the quality and material used in it, Mr. Mamgain said adding, the civic body is committed to bringing transparency in its functioning.
The MCD elections are slated to be held in 2012.
