The several errors and wrong information that one can see on the NMMC website is due to the little knowledge of the staff appointed for the job. Our Correspondent Rajeev Mishra was taken aback when he found this reality as he visited the website control room in NMMC. For once the reason why the official website of NMMC viz. nmmconline.com has incorrect and incomplete information is not because of the negligent attitude of NMMC officials but because the ones assigned the job for the website to do not even know how to access the pages of the official website. It may be recalled that we had aired a report on the errors on nmmconline.com that begins with the introduction page, where instead of 90 wards, it states there are 64 electoral wards in NMMC jurisdiction, there were information of Standing Committee members, the Standing Committee’s chairman’s contact number says NA that means not applicable, the city’s photo gallery on the website too is a pathetic site. Yet another embarrassing blunder on the website is the information on the Opposition Leader of NMMC. The present opposition leader is Congress’s Dashrath Bhagat while the website misinforms by listing NCP corporator Ratna Vishwasrao as the Opposition Leader. The NMMT chairman name was Iqbal Kavare. Even other details like names of ward committee chairman and various departments’ chairmen are all wrong. When our Correspondent Rajeev Mishra went to the website’s control room he was taken aback when the employees sitting there could not even access the pages. None of the officials agreed to speak to our Correspondent and even Dy. Engineer – Electrical G V Rao, in-charge of the website refused to speak to us. After a few hours, though the name of NMMT Chairman was corrected, the name of NMMC Education Committee Chairman Ram Vichare has been changed to P R Pawar who in fact is not the Chairman but Education Officer. Navi Mumbai is mooted as the city of the 21st century, with several prestigious projects like the SEZs, Airport and others coming to the city. Hence the world would be deprived of any details about Navi Mumbai only because NMMC administration could not find any internet literate person in the entire city.
