Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) is going to be the role model for the department of urban development of the Jharkhand Government as well as the Ranchi Municipal Corporation (RMC) so far as using e-governance for revenue generation is concerned
This was today revealed by Chandraswar Prasad Singh, minister for urban development of the Government of Jharkhand in an exclusive interview with Echo of India. “The way KMC has generated more property and other taxes  by using IT has become a lesson to learn for us and we are going to use this model in all our municipal corporations like the ones  in Ranchi, Deoghar, Bokaro, Giridi, Hajaribagh, to name a few,'' Singh said.
He also said that his government gave this task of modernisation to a private firm at Ranchi earlier but they cut a sorry figure in this regard. ``In fact I am planning to visit Kolkata soon along with a team of officials and experts to see all these things myself,'' Singh further said.
