It is also aimed at knowing whether the people are making proper use of these facilities created in city.

Addressing a meeting of the engineering, urban planning, revenue, and public health officials here on Thursday, Mr. Ravi Babu said huge funds under the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission were being spent to create and enhance quality of basic services.
