New Delhi: The Delhi government has moved "online" the implementation and monitoring of projects under MLALAD funds by developing an application in this regard involving all the relevant agencies, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Tuesday.

The online application, hosted at www.mlalad.delhi.gov.in, has been developed by the 'Delhi e- Governance Society' and will be coordinated by the newly- formed body Delhi Urban Development Authority (DUDA).

Sisodia introduced the system and gave a presentation on it during the AAP government's orientation programme for members of the Delhi Assembly.

"The system developed by Delhi e-Governance Society will keep entire process online by the virtual of giving role based axis to the various stakeholders namely MLA, work agencies, DUDA etc," an official statement said.

DUDA, whose formation was announced by Sisodia in the Budget, will work as central agency for execution of developmental projects as well as maintenance of public assets including those under MLALAD.

As on today, the processing and the monitoring of projects initiated by MLA's is done manually.

"The present manual process not only creates delay in the project cycle but also has very limited possibilities of data analytics," it said.

As per the online procedure, MLAs would suggest work online to Delhi Urban Development Authority (DUDA) which would in turn ask for estimates from executing agencies or will give its own estimates.

Subsequently, the MLA would approve the estimate and followed by DUDA releasing the fund. The executing agency will thereafter initiate the bid process and identify the contractor.
