Can Technology Stop Corruption at Delhi Development Authority?

Delhi Development Authority (DDA) – which is one of the most corrupt departments of Delhi – has decided to embrace technology to streamline its operations.

The Lt. Governor (LG) of Delhi Anil Baijal – who is also the chairman of DDA – launched a number of e-governance initiative for DDA on Thursday (July 18) to computerize its front-office and back-office activities.

It is believed that the increased use of technology will help stop extreme corruption at DDA where almost every official is corrupt and DDA is running an organized corruption racket to loot the citizens.

Among the applications, DDA has implemented a Court Case Monitoring system called Provakil to monitor the status of cases filed in different courts. According to DDA, it will help its departments and officers track cases, prepare cause-list well in advance, maintain complete history of the case, and so on.

To ensure safe and secure record-keeping, DDA has computerized its record management process. Considered a key component of operational efficiency, record management – according to DDA – will add more value to its information assets.
