ULB Department’s website shut, residents suffer

Chandigarh, October 21

The website for online approval of building plans, from all urban local bodies of Haryana, has been shut for at least 10 days.

At present, the residents are not able to apply for fresh approvals or get a nod for their earlier applied applications. “There is no option of offline submission of file. Residents are harassed. It is also leading to a loss of lakhs to the government,” said RTI activist PP Kapoor of Panipat. He had submitted a complaint to Urban Local Bodies Minister Anil Vij.

An official at the department said the matter was in their notice and a consultant was called on Tuesday. He added that they had been assured that the matter would be sorted out within two days. He said that it was wrong to say that the website had been shut for two months.

When contacted, Vij said, “The website has been shut for some time. It is managed by HATRON. The concerned officials are sorting out the matter.” As per an RTI information procured by PP Kapoor, dated September 3, M/s Capricot was taking care of the website and the process for blacklisting the firm was on. “The website has been shut for 10 days. There were some problems for the last two months. A new bid was floated by HATRON, but it could take three to four months. If the issue is not resolved, we will go in for manual system and take action against the vendor,” said Amit Agrawal, Director, Urban Local Bodies. — TNS
