BMC Will Pay Cash To Citizens If It Fails To Fix Reported Potholes In 24 Hours
Months after launching a mobile app for reporting and registering pothole-related complaints, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is planning to give Rs 500 as cash prize to complaitant if it fails address the issue within 24 hours. The move is aimed at improving the road conditions.
"This prize could be up to Rs 500, but the pothole reported by the citizens has to be at least one foot in length and three inches deep," a BMC official said.
A number of citizens have been filing complaints about potholes ever since the BMC launched MyBMC Pothole Fixit app. The app allows users to register pothole-related complaints in all the administrative wards of the BMC.
Earlier in December 2017, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had launched a mobile application and a web portal aimed at enabling the civic body in capital Mumbai to offer its services using the latest technology.
Using the app, citizens can view the reservations on plots according to the development plan (DP). On the other hand, the One MCGM GIS portal will display latest information about various departments of the civic body. This will speed up decision-making and coordination among the various departments.
