Bringing about a systemic change - from the payment of ‘ghost workers’ to deployment based on planning


Client: Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP)

Location: Bengaluru

Partner/Collaborators: BBMP’s SWM Cell, Bangalore Development Authority (BDA)

Project duration: June 2017 -

Status: On-going



This project has been taken up in phases, where the intent is to streamline the street sweeping system such that the management becomes transparent and deployment is done on the basis of scientific normative standards. The key phases that we have worked with the BBMP include the following:

  • Phase 1: Analysing loopholes in the existing system on ground through multiple levels of data collection and methods of ratification

  • Phase 2: Strategy to bring in transparency through introduction of biometric attendance system

  • Phase 3: Planning for on-ground deployment using digital tools with the Ward level Health Inspector (SWM)
