BANGALORE: Soon, Bangaloreans can log on to the BBMP website to check orders issued for engineering works since March 2013.

To make procuring information under the RTI Act paperless and easy, the civic body has roped in an agency to scan documents of the works and upload them.

A H Basavaraju, Chairman of the Standing Committee Chairman on Public Works, told Express that the agency has to scan documents of works in all 198 wards. “Scanning will be done at the respective zones. The IT Adviser to the Commissioner will have control over it. The tender has been awarded for a year. If it works out, BBMP can have its own scanning machines and computer operators can be trained,” he said.

Further, if someone applies for information under RTI, BBMP staff need not go through all the files, he said. “In case the original files are destroyed in a fire or other accidents, it will be easy to get a copy as the information will be available in the scanned format,” the official said.
