This monsoon, if you spot any potholes on the city roads, you just need to file a complaint with the relevant official, which so far has not been an easy task.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), as a first step, will soon release a list detailing the names and phone numbers of the officials of the civic body and the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), who s will deal with these complaints.

“We will specifically mention areas that are under the jurisdiction of BMC and MMRDA. The list will also contain the telephone numbers of the managers in charge of the premises. We will put these details in newspaper advertisements, on the BMC website and on the potholefixit mobile app,” a senior city official said.

For years, the two agencies have blamed each other for potholes that pop up on the roads after heavy rains. The MMRDA takes care of the arterials and roads where its infrastructure works are taking place, while the BMC maintains the rest of the roads. Flyovers on the Eastern and Western Express Highway are maintained by the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation.

The official said the BMC had allowed the MMRDA to carry out metro works under certain conditions, including regular maintenance of the roads and keeping them pothole free. “However, these guidelines have not been properly followed over the years. Therefore, we have decided to upload their contact details for efficient and transparent management. In addition, most road digging and construction works in Mumbai are carried out by MMRDA. »

SVR Srinivas, commissioner of MMRDA, said the two agencies would coordinate this monsoon to ensure prompt action and response.

“A number of complaints about potholes and bad patches received by the BMC relate to the Western Expressway and locations where subway work is in progress. The civic body forwards these complaints to the MMRDA but leaves them unaddressed. BMC bears the blame as all unguarded potholes are found on MMRDA-supported roads and bridges,” said a circular issued by Additional Municipal Commissioner P Velarasu on June 10.

Meanwhile, in a press release, the MMRDA said it had set up 24-hour control rooms to deal with monsoon-related issues like tree collapse, waterlogging and potholes. These control rooms will function as the BMC Disaster Management Control Rooms.

“MMRDA’s control rooms have been put in place to minimize inconvenience to vehicular and pedestrian traffic at its various project sites,” the statement said.

Rahul Kardile, Joint Metropolitan Commissioner, MMRDA, said: “Contractors have been asked to strictly adhere to safety measures. They were instructed to erect barricades, repair damaged roads and clear mud. Contractors will also maintain sump pumps at bottlenecks and where there is no connection to storm sewers. »

Nationwide warns customers to keep contact details up to date amid new payment checks | Personal finance | Finance https://euskalabereak.net/nationwide-warns-customers-to-keep-contact-details-up-to-date-amid-new-payment-checks-personal-finance-finance/ Tue, 10 May 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://euskalabereak.net/nationwide-warns-customers-to-keep-contact-details-up-to-date-amid-new-payment-checks-personal-finance-finance/ New payment checks at online checkouts have been rolled out by the building society to better help those who shop online.

New payment checks at online checkouts have been rolled out by the building society to better help those who shop online. National data suggests that Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) blocks 2,000 transactions per month that are at risk of being fraudulent. The building society said it is “important” that people keep contact details held by their bank or building society up to date, including their mobile phone number.

This is even more important if people don’t use the mobile banking app, or there might be issues when they go to the cash register while shopping online.

Nationwide offers several options when it comes to SCA verification, including:

Authentication using the mobile banking application

One-time secret code by SMS

One-time access code using card reader

One-time passcode via landline

Unique access code by e-mail.

A study by Nationwide found that 68% of Britons are happier to wait a little longer for shopping transactions to go through if it’s safer to do so.

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) was initially introduced by debit and credit card providers in September 2019.

However, it was only rolled out to a small proportion of payments and was widely introduced to all online purchases on March 14.

Thanks to the verification system, buyers will have to confirm their identity when making an online purchase by responding to a push notification on their mobile device.

DO NOT MISS

Overall, Nationwide research shows that 28% of all purchases are now made online, which is a 52% increase from five years ago.

Matt Cox, Chief Product Owner for Digital Payments at Nationwide Building Society, explained how recently introduced checks better protect customers from scams.

Mr Cox said: “Many people prefer the convenience of shopping online and while merchants strive to make the checkout experience as quick and easy as possible, we generally accept that a little delay is worth it. penalty with regard to our security and our personal data.

“The introduction of new strong customer authentication measures only adds a few extra seconds to the payment process for high-risk transactions.

“But they are vital for retailers, banks and building societies to verify whether the cardholder is making the purchase.”

In addition, Mr. Cox pointed to the speed with which this latest backup has managed to mitigate the damage caused by fraudsters. He explained: “It has only been two months since the new regulations were fully rolled out, but we are already seeing around 2,000 fewer online fraud cases per month and this is likely happening across the industry as a whole.

“While this is good news, history has shown us that when we interrupt fraudsters, they often look for other, easier ways to cheat people with their hard-earned money. This means we must always remain vigilant because we protect our members’ money.

The majority of online scams happen using compromised data, which is received through data leaks, according to the construction company. Many consumers mistakenly assume that they are at risk of scammers stealing their physical bank card and using it to make purchases online. Despite this concern, 59% of respondents admitted to fearing their card would be stolen and used online. However, it looks like similar payment check initiatives used by Nationwide could help ease concerns in the future.
