The AAP-led Delhi government is all set to develop a web portal which will make the Local Area Development Funds and the project details of the MLAs online.

Implementation will be done by the end of this month, making it a unique and exclusive initiative amongst all states in India. The government is also planning to train the MLAs in a two-day programme which will be held next week. All MLAs would be trained in using the portal and each one will have a unique login ID.

The governing body of all such projects will be the newly constructed Delhi Urban Development Authority (DUDA). It will be headed by the respective district magistrates in each of the 11 districts. It would also cover projects approved during the recent mohalla sabha meetings. The following would be financed through the Swaraj Fund.

After it came into effect on August 15, DUDA has been termed as the answer to red-tapism in delivering development projects. The authority will also work as the central agency for the execution of all developmental projects in Delhi.

People living in Delhi can now avail 30 more services at their doorstep, including adding members in ration card, paying the motor vehicle tax and getting a DTC pass, taking the total number of such services to 70. The second phase of the doorstep delivery of public services, the official launch of which is yet to take place, has been rolled out.

Residents can dial 1076 and get the service by paying Rs 50 extra, an official from Delhi’s Administrative Reforms told IANS. The new services include booking a tour package through Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corp.

In September 2018, the Delhi government had launched the doorstep delivery of 40 public services to make things easy for the common man. In the first phase, people got certificates of marriage, caste, domicile, income, births and deaths among others at their doors.

Aam Aadmi Party leader Atishi told IANS: “The plan initially was to take things online but we realised that people find it more easy to call a number and get the services instead of doing things online.” The tenure of the Kejriwal government will end on February 2020. (IANS)
