Jan 6, 2017: Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (MMRCL) was awarded the SKOCH Silver Award for IT-enabled rehabilitation and resettlement system for Mumbai Metro Line – 3 project at the 46th Summit held at New Delhi. The Rail Corporation also received another recognition, which is the SKOCH Order-Of-Merit award for successfully qualifying amongst Top 100 projects in India.
The rehabilitation and resettlement system for MMRCL was developed hosted at data center located in Mumbai. As per sources, the IT-optimized R&R system is first-of-its-kind and was designed under the guidance of Mrs. Maya Patole – Deputy Collector of R&R department MMRCL, in order to improve transparency, enhance efficiency, reduce disorientation and streamline the processes for maintaining records. This system helps to manage the databases of the community that needs to be moved to the rehabilitation area and provide compensation.
“We’re glad to be a part of this MMRCL project and even more delighted that our contribution helped earn two prestigious SKOCH awards. We look forward to continue our collaboration with MMRCL and deliver our skills for good cause,” said developers.
Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (MMRCL) is reinventing transportation in Mumbai, and has currently undertaken Metro Line 3 project – a 33.5km-long corridor running along Colaba-Bandra-SEEPZ, which is a yet another step to improve conveyance in the city. As a result, it has led to displacement of people and thus, the team needs to ensure that rehabilitation is addressed to those affected. This new system helps in keeping proper records of rehabilitation and resettlement provided to the communities affected by implementation of this project. Often the compensation and rehabilitation facilities that require to be offered to these people are missed out, rendering many homeless and helpless. With the new R&R tool, the MMRCL team will be able to keep a track of all these essential things and function efficiently.
“Our team was seeking a tool that would ease the complicated process of managing records and we are really impressed by the design, features and quality of the IT systems built by us. We are delighted to achieve the SKOCH award for this new tool and are appreciative to the developer team,” added Mrs. Maya Patole.
