The Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) is creating public awareness on the use of both the ‘Pragati’ portal and also the Global Positioning System (GPS) machines, to facilitate tracking of development works.
The MCG is all set to offer a week-long training to all 35 municipal councillors, resident welfare associations’ (RWAs) representatives and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) on the newly launched Pragati portal and GPS machines so that they can further disseminate knowledge to the public.
The training will last from July 9 to July 17 with a break over the weekend (July 14-July 15), to complete one week’s cycle.
The focus of the training will be on creating awareness among people about the portal for keeping a tab on development projects, which has been launched only recently.
“People have no idea how to utilise the ‘Pragati’ portal gainfully. In a week long training session we will let them know how to use it, how to view and check projects’ status–whether underway or under consideration–for all works undertaken by the corporation by simply clicking the mouse,” said Rita Dalal, IT manager, MCG.
The week-long training will be conducted in two sessions. Session one will last one and a half hours, starting at 10 am and ending at 11.30 am.
“We will inform them how to download pages, track under-construction works or find project-related information from their homes. Our experts will also train people on tracking vehicles engaged in sanitation works using the GPS system,” said Dalal, adding that the
MCG has installed GPS systems on 50 vehicles engaged in sanitation jobs in the city till date.
