NEW DELHI: Soon, the non-performing civic body departments and officials will be on the radar of the municipal corporation of Delhi (MCD), which is creating an app to fix accountability of employees and ensure timely delivery of projects. To be developed by the IT cell of the MCD at a cost of `3 crore, the ‘Officers’ App’ will be connected to an information portal.

“It has happened many times that the corporation gets a bad name in the public, as the field officers responsible for the job don’t do the work properly. We hope this will bring transparency and efficiency in the functioning of the civic authority.” said South Delhi Mayor Preeti Sherawat.

The SDMC is the nodal agency, which is developing this application for all three municipal bodies North and East. A private company that has been given the tender will work closely with the IT cell in developing the app.

The tender document says, “A cloud-based information system pertaining to each department will be maintained. It will also include grievances of the public. The private company, Civic Solutions Private Limited, will build and operate the system for three years after which the software will be handed over to the corporation.”
