New Delhi: Aimed at ensuring transparency and better administration, the Road Transport and Highways Ministry on Monday said it aims to bring the entire system fall under the scope of e-governance module.
Launching a web-based application to make payment process for works related to National Highways more transparent, Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari said he plans to make every system of the ministry online.
"We will make all system online to ensure transparency and to faster governance. People have to come to office even for small work. We want to stop that and ensure they can do it from their homes only," Gadkari said.
The minister said the payment monitoring system would also facilitate easy communication between various offices and allow a user to track the status of a bill.
Using the system, the ministry can also independently check position of processing of bills by different departments and utilisation of funds scheme wise.
"Feedback generated from the system will assist the Ministry in identifying bottlenecks and making entire process mechanism more efficient," he added.
The ministry has already issued direction to entertain bills on the first-cum-first-serve basis. Time limit of five working days to dispose of a bill has also been prescribed.
