Focus on implementing e-governance project

Efforts to make governance citizen-friendly


Special emphasis on newly added wards: Mayor

Rs.10 crore allotted for road work


Thiruvananthapuram: The Thiruvanathapuram Corporation has decided to expedite the implementation of the Rs.16-crore e-governance programme.

This was announced by the Mayor during a meeting of the Corporation Council here on Thursday.

The decision comes in the wake of projects under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) expected to get over by March 2012.

The project, under the National e-Governance Plan, is aimed at improving the service-delivery of public offices and making governance more citizen-centric. The project, earlier estimated to cost Rs.17 crore, was revised with minor changes and was approved by the Centre.

The civic body will allocate Rs.10 crore for road work in the wake of the damage caused by this spell of rain. The maintenance of storm-water drains will also be taken up.

The Corporation will lay special emphasis on the development of newly added wards while earmarking funds for various projects, Mayor K. Chandrika said.

The dates of the divisional council meeting for various sections of society were also announced.

The issues associated with roller-skating training along the road close to the Tennis Club enclave was raised by councillors of the United Democratic Front (UDF). The Mayor had denied permission for a facility there citing a case against the Mayor and the Corporation Secretary, filed on May 12, 2011.

The UDF councillors staged a walkout over the issue. Ms. Chandrika told The Hindu that the Opposition had been playing a political game with the issue.
