With over 33,000 works uploaded onto the web-based Global Project Management System (GPMS) of the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), citizens can monitor these works in real time, said R. Sri Kumar, Vigilance Commissioner, Central Vigilance Commission.
Speaking at a discussion on BBMP's GPMS organised by CIVIC Bangalore here on Saturday, he said that the system was developed by the Indian Centre for Social Transformation (ICST) along with the Karnataka State Police Housing Corporation. “Citizens may upload photographs and provide their feedback, based on which the civic body can initiate corrective actions,” he said.
Raja Seevan, founder trustee of ICST, said that the e-governance initiative was introduced with an aim to provide total transparency in all the civic functions.
Citizens raised concerns over the lack of coordination between the different civic utilities, lack of awareness among people about the portal, lack of internal coordination between BBMP's different departments and late redressal of complaints.
K.R. Niranjan, BBMP's Special Commissioner, said that the Coordination Committee, chaired by Advisor to Chief Minister on Urban Affairs A. Ravindra, had been formed to resolve issues with regard to lack of coordination.
He said that there was a need to sensitise the BBMP staff to use GPMS and make information available for the citizens on a public domain.
