Online services of the Kochi Corporation have been stalled due to the technical flaws which remained unfixed in the system for a long while. The problems could not be solved due to tiff between the corporation and TCS, the implementing agency.
As a result, the corporation has rolled back to manual mode in issuance of building permits.
According to CPM councillor Benedict Fernandez, construction of houses under the projects like Prime Minister’s Avas Yojana has been affected due to the problems in online issuance of building permits.
