Delhi: PWD to launch online booking of community centres for weddings

New Delhi: The Public Works Department is all set to launch an online system for booking its community centres and parks for marriage functions and other events.

The department has started trial run of the online booking project and is removing all hurdles coming in the way of implementing it. "We have started the trial run of online booking system for community centres and open space/parks. With the launch of this project, Delhiites can book PWD's parks and community centres for marriage functions and other events online and even make payment through internet. This project may be launched on December one," said a senior official, who is looking after this project.

At present, there are over 12 community centres and open area/parks of PWD, including Gulabi Bagh where three marriage venues are available, Karkadooma, Kalyanvas and Timarpur.

According to the PWD official, Delhi residents presently have to book community centres manually by visiting Delhi Secretariat, which often consumes a lot of time. "But, after launch of online booking system, people don't need to visit Delhi Secretariat and all what they will have to do is just visit online. People can also book event venue from their homes. They can also check online if other function is due on their event date or not, which will be very useful for them," he added.

The official also said this project will help bring full-transparency in the booking process. Last month, PWD had blacklisted three tent operators, who were hand-in-glove with allegedly some employees of Delhi Government and used to make forged booking of PWD's community centres and open space/parks with their help.

He said a resident, who is not employee of Central and State governments, will have to book event venue 30 days prior to the function. "For instance, a marriage function is to be held on November 30, he/she has to book event venue in the last week of October. If a person, who is an employee of Delhi Government, will have to book community centre 90 days before the event date. "Besides, employees of Central government can register booking 90 days before the function date," he further added.
