The Thane Zilla Parishad has decided to use the lottery system for its development projects. Under this lottery system around 650 development works were bid in the Zilla Parishad’s head quarters. For the first time the Thane Zilla Parishad has started allotting development works on the basis of lottery system which include construction work, road repair work, Panchayat Bhavan work, medical and others. Earlier for these works, the Parishad used to call in for tenders which needed the DDR and the Executive engineer but with the lottery system the contractors would be more accountable for the quality of work they do. Calling it a totally transparent system, the Thane Zilla Paraishad alooted around 650 development works worth Rs 30 crore. Monika Bhosale – NMTV News.
