Four years after the launch of major projects under the Jawaharalal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (Jnnurm), the civic body is finally seeking experts who can help them by playing a voluntary and watchdog role.The city has plenty of experts in various fields but they are willing to become City Volunteer Technical Corps (CVTC) only if there are paid for their services.
I would be surprised if they would proactively have wanted watchdogs for their works. No wonder we never heard of this before. I think all NURM funds have been used up already no? So just compliance to the requirement is remaining?
But why not extend this to non-NURM projects? If it was extended to non-technical usability aspects would people reading this on Praja be willing to spend some time?
