In view of the pandemic, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has been encouraging paperless work in the civic body.
This has led to the increased use of computers. Moreover, the BMC has started adopting e-office, autoDCR, SAP and biometric attendance computer system. However, as the computers currently in use are old, 2,765 new computers will be procured for which INR 22.58 crores will reportedly be spent.
According to sources, the civic body had earlier invited tenders for computers, laptops, printers and scanners for various departments and municipal offices. However, as most of the computers and equipment are more than 5 years old and obsolete, computers, printers and scanners will be procured as per the demand of the departments.
Meanwhile, on Thursday, August 5, will administer both doses of Covaxin and Covishield jabs across 331 vaccination centres.
As per new orders, all the civic and state-run centres will be operational for beneficiaries above 18 years of age from 9 am to 5 pm. Healthcare and frontline workers due for their second doses will also be given the jab at the centres. Covishield will be administered across 304 centres all over Mumbai. Of the total stock, 30 per cent of the doses have been reserved for the first dose and 70 per cent for the second dose.
