He said, complaints against government employees would be taken on priority and officials found indulging in corrupt practices and misusing official powers will be dealt with seriously.

In a step to keep all ongoing projects under public scrutiny, it has been decided that PWD department or construction agency would display the helpline number along with website so that people could report any irregularity in the project noticed by them.

Earlier, PWD authorities used to mention only details regarding the name of the ongoing project, cost incurred and the date of execution and finally the date of completion on project display board, he said.
