Municipality – Online compliants?

E-governance, most say is a two way street: give some (information and services), take some (feedback).

Go to Hyderabad Muni site and find handy links to register your grievance, and track them as well! Whats more, they have an online way to take in RTI queries as well (seems broken today, but did work last time I checked).

While I sure hope these grand citizen friendly online things work for Hyderabad, Bangalore site (BBMP) has been making us wait for an online grievance system. Sep 2006 was their self-enforced deadline, hope they put it up soon.

For lazy keyboard-warriors like us (who are good for not much else!), I think online RTI and complaint systems should be good tools for activism, isn’t it? Hopefully soon!

    thanks Ravi and Chitra. I cooked that term up from pen-warriors (kalam ke sipahee types) :)

    SB sir, hopefully soon. They can do a good job only if they listen to us, common sense.
