Mumbai: In order to streamline the system of auction and bring transperancy, the Maharashtra government has made e-auction mandatory from January 1 next year.

The e-auction was implemented in some districts on pilot basis earlier which has received good response. Currently, auction of sand, government land and tendu leaves is done on e-auction. According to a Government Resolution (GR) of last week, the e-auction system will be implemented in all government offices, urban and rural local bodies, public undertakings with a reserve price of Rs one lakh or more.

The GR said the decision will help boost government revenue as well. All departments have been asked to use the Chennai based National Informatics Centre (NIC) platform for the purpose and also keep data backups.
