Bangalore: Want to know about the assets and liabilities of your councillors or the funds being spent on various ongoing projects? Just log on to the newly-designed official website of the BBMP. The layout of BBMP’s official website (www.bbmp. gov.in) has changed from Saturday. The new layout is more user-friendly and eye catching than the previous one, the civic body has claimed.
According to sources, the initiative is to make it more transparent. “Public can access many documents, including the status of ongoing projects, estimation, amount spent so far and remaining amount of the work. This will reduce the number of RTI applications,” an official said. The website will also provide information on the task of various Standing Committees like number of raids/ inspections and meetings conducted. Assets and liabilities of all the 198 councillors are uploaded year wise.
On citizen services like registration of birth/death certificates, khatha, getting approval for building plans and applying for trade licenses, the website clearly gives the picture of the documents that need to be submited to obtained these certificates. There are also details on number of dog bite cases, animal birth control programme and the expenditure.
