New Delhi: The Municipal Corporation of Delhi is planning to bring the details of its vehicle usage
under the ambit of its e-governance project.

As details related to purchase, sale, breakdown, repair,
maintenance, usage and expenses incurred on vehicles will now
be present online, it will help officials in curtailing
unnecessary expenses, an MCD official said.

Initially, details of service vehicles like autos,
trucks, cycle rickshaws and others used by MCD`s different
departments like health, veterinary, horticulture, outdoor
advertising, architecture, engineering among others will be
maintained

"After that we will shift our attention to vehicles used
by our officials. We have a total of over 30 department and we
will first start with the vehicles used by departments for
different service purposes," the official said.

MCD has initiated the e-governance project for
modernising its functions and bringing in greater
transparency, accountability and effectiveness in delivery of
civic services.

Till date, the MCD has no arrangement that keeps a tab of
different vehicles used by its different departments, he said.

"There is no check list. Many a times when there is an
urgent need for a vehicle, we are told that there is a
shortage of vehicle or the vehicle is out of order for months.
With this software now in place, we will also know which
vehicle to discard and how many to purchase," he said.
