Mumbai: Now, Mumbai residents can view details of performance of their Municipal Corporators on their mobile screens. A mobile application named ‘My Corporator’, developed by a citizen forum Nagarkyan Research Center, provides a personalised report card of each Corporators in Mumbai.

The performance reports have been prepared using RTI applications and other documents related to the civic body. According to Anand Bhandare, the coordinator of Nagarkyan and an RTI activist, the performance of elected representatives was assessed with various parameters including attendance at various civic committees and meetings, number of questions asked, number of motions filed as well as amount and methods of funds used.

Bhandare has been effectively preparing detailed report cards on Mumbai’s municipal corporators using RTI applications. Over the years these report cards have been useful for evaluating the performance of Corporators. Following multiple requests from the citizens, the Nagarkyan has now decided to make this information available online through a mobile app, a team member said.

After compiling the RTI documents, the team analysed attendance records as well as orders of the purchase documents that are sent by the Corporators. Ground-level surveys were also conducted before preparing the final report.

The app currently has 56 report cards of 44 corporators including Kamlesh Yadav, Prakash Gangadre and Neil Soumya from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and Vinnie D’Souza, Sonam Jamsutkar and Sneha Jagade from the Congress and Pratima Khopde, Sunil Prabhu and Geeta Singhan from the Shiv Sena.

Corporates are ranked with specific colour marks. If the performance scale is less than 40, it is highlighted in grey, if the percentage range is between 40 and 70, it is highlighted in blue, and above 70 is highlighted in green.

Veteran RTI activist Anil Galgali, who has been instrumental in bringing out many alleged corruption cases relating to BMC, MMRDA, Mumbai Metro and other city establishments, is also part of the project. Recently, a webinar was held by Bhandare and Galgali that explained how to track the performance of our Corporators in the My Corporator app using various parameters.
