With civic polls around the corner, Delhi’s BJP has decided to go ‘paperless’ and bring all MCD offline services online by March 31 if it wins the election, said officials. The manifesto committee, led by former Delhi BJP leader Satish Upadhyay, on Friday announced the party’s plan to make the civic body “completely paperless” if it comes to power in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD).
“There are services available online, but our goal is to make MCD completely paperless. Our main goal is to make all services online and an app called ‘My MCD’ will also be developed by March 31,” Upadhyay said.
Currently, the MCD provides several online services such as birth and death certificates, property tax, council tax, and other documents. The BJP, which launched a Vachan Patra last week, is expected to launch its MCD manifesto by next week.
The party said it had solicited suggestions from different sections of society, such as shopkeepers, market associations, Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) and others, to prepare the manifesto. More than 61,000 suggestions were received through their portal and WhatsApp number, Upadhyay added.
The Delhi municipal elections will be held on December 4 and the results will be announced on December 7.
