Malaysian Govt. implements online system to check rural projects

The Malaysia Government is implementing an online system which allows residents of Kampung to access and monitor the status of projects in their areas.

People of the country can survey the list of projects approved under the Ninth Malaysia Plan through the web portal I Cerve U and then take up their grievances up with the local district officers and elected representatives over delayed or abandoned projects. The government will also launch the e-merah system at local district offices to create profiles of residents within their areas and compile an information database on matters like financial assistance, disaster management, economic activities and planning. The portal will also list public infrastructure in their areas such as health clinics, telephone cabling, roads, low-cost housing etc., which will give them an idea of the development in their areas. The villagers will also be able to channelise their complaints through the portal.
