New Delhi: Concerned over complaints by councillors over "slow progress" in projects carried out by Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), Commissioner KS Mehra has announced that the civic body will put online the details of files related to works carried out by it.

This, the Commissioner believes, will help in monitoring the progress of a project besides streamlining it.

A senior MCD official said the system will soon be in place and the movement of files of any project will be available online. After the implementation of the scheme, officers who hold up files for too long will be held accountable, the official said.

In normal circumstances, the official said, "any file pertaining to a project is not held up purposely. The delay is because of objections made by a certain department, which is part of the procedure".

Through the new system, progress can be monitored and it can also be ascertained in which department a particular file is lying, the official said.

Councillors had earlier complained that development projects take several months to get implemented as files keep getting transferred from one official to another without any intimation to them.
