BANGALORE: With a new initiative of public participation, the BBMP commissioner Bharat Lal Meena has ensured that public complaint against the Palike will gradually come down.
The residents will now have a say in the progress of all the minor developmental work in their respective wards and all ward offices will be equipped with a revolving fund of Rs 1 lakh, which can be used in solving civic problems.
The resident’s welfare associations, forums and general public will now participate in all the developmental work happening in their respective area and ensure speedy work.
This agenda was kick started by the BBMP chief, on Wednesday in Koramangala. In his first attempt in the effort to decentralise the BBMP administration, he assured Rs 1 lakh to a junior engineer of the ward under the Karntatka Transparency in Public Procurements Act.
This amount is a revolving fund which can be used for improving roads and other required projects.
Civic agenda for Bangalore that revolves around citizens
Civic Front, a joint forum of local residential association, forums and federations, is being launched to make the administration of the city civic-centered and to turn Bangalore into a great city. The Front will set an agenda that will involve citizens in the development of civic amenities.
Concern for the people and committment to development is at the centre of the agenda, which is nearly ready, said Mavalli Shankar, of the Civic Front.
