CBD BELAPUR: Mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Tukaram Munde in­au­gu­rated a ‘host to host’ scheme at the Navi Mumbai Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (NMMC) on Tues­day.

Un­der the scheme, con­trac­tors and sup­pli­ers will no longer have to run across de­part­ments for their pay­ments. The amounts due to them will be di­rectly de­posited in their ac­counts.

Munde has stressed on e-gov­er­nance to pro­vide ef­fi­cient ser­vices to the res­i­dents of the city. Chief ac­counts and fi­nance of­fi­cer Dhan­raj Garad said, “The pi­lot project in NMMC is bet­ter than the RTGS sys­tem.”

“The power ac­cess is be­ing im­ple­mented in as­so­ci­a­tion with Axis Bank Ltd. It will help speed up work in the civic body,” said Garad. “Con­trac­tors and sup­pli­ers will not have to come to NMMC head­quar­ters to col­lect cheques as the pay­ments will go di­rectly to their bank ac­counts. It will help save time, ef­forts and money. It will also help bring trans­parency,” said Garad.

The de­ci­sion has been wel­comed by the con­trac­tors. “This is a good move as it will make our life much eas­ier and also help curb cor­rup­tion,” said a con­trac­tor.
