The Delhi government plans to use a new software to monitor quality of projects while they are in progress for better transparency,officials said on Tuesday.

Government departments will feed relevant information at various stages of projects into the software called Vigeye,or vigilance eye,which the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) launched recently. Chief Secretary PK Tripathi said,“The CVC will monitor the information,which will be updated continuously throughout the different stages of a project. This will ensure that any discrepancy is detected at an early stage.”

Tripathi shared details of the project on a day when Sheila Dikshit released a performance report card of the government under her third term as chief minister.

While releasing the report during her customary annual address to state bureaucrats,Dikshit said her government would focus on better delivery of citizen services and cleanliness the coming year.

Dikshit also emphasised the need to focus on maintenance of infrastructure and said four per cent of the budget allocation in every department would be used for this purpose.

“Our main focus would be on maintenance of infrastructure created in the run-up to the Commonwealth Games. We are also going to make Delhi the cleanest city in the country,” Dikshit said.

Noting that trifurcation of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi was one “major step” in ensuring better service delivery to citizens,Dikshit said increasing reservation of seats for women to 50 per cent from 33 per cent would result in improvement of its functioning.

She said her government was determined to make the National Capital a slum-free city and was working sincerely to realise it.

“In next two-three years,we should be able to make Delhi a slum-free area,” she said,and asked officials to take up the task sincerely. “We learn lessons from mistakes only. If we do not work,then we will not make any mistakes,” she said.

Highlighting various achievements of her government,she focussed on better transport services,education infrastructure and healthcare facilities while admitting that there were lacunae in the public distribution system.

“We have been trying hard to improve the transport facilities. We will introduce mono rail soon in East Delhi,” said Dikshit.
