    What is being done to reduce traffic within the city? Zebra crossings are very limited and none of the cars stop at zebra crossing for pedestrians. Some of junctions don't even have a proper traffic signal. And don't even start about footpaths which are very narrow to walk on or do not exist. The city is being designed for cars and not for people. This should change.

    99Most of the services are digitised but only for officers and not for public. I wish smart app help us issue official documents like birth certicate, property documents etc without visiting government office.

    All these apps are not for people's benefit. Ex :recently they have started online property tax payments, before they used to calculate waste management charges for the house for ground floor area. Now if you have first floor of your house that area to considered for calculation. Before it was Rs.900 for me and now it's 1500 for only collecting plastic waste once a week. Next they are calculating total surrounding area of your plot too. So my dear people this Government is only for squeezing out money from the people.
