Earlier the whole system was centralized which was creating an unnecessary load on HO and hence delaying the overall process.
The process included de-centralisation of the assessment process users. Then the data entry is done in automated ways at the operator level in respective wards. This automated new assessment process has increased the overall working efficiency to a very large extent. The system is designed according to the guidelines mentioned in The Maharashtra Municipal Corporations act.
