The concerned Village / Municipality / Corporation that maintains that Roads.

Make the complaint collectively as a group and let the petition be signed as many residents as possible.

Then Plan a visit to the Top Authority on any grievance day (every working Mon day) and handover the petition and get the number to Grievance)

Then go to Councellor, MLA and MP elected representatives and provide a copy to them and seek their funds Lauds.

 

After two months file RTI Application and seek information on action taken against complaint / grievance.

Find out from website or ask some one affected like you to visit and get those dates and timings etc, and distribute other work to others also and you can co-ordinate. Division of Labour is essential for every task. Now is it not true that every thing is being served on your plate at your home ?

Compaint for Bad Road in Patna Kumhrar Area lies with the Patna Municipal Corporation.

Here are the direct number to make a complaint: Please contact control room on these numbers:

+91 612 2200634, 9798261371, 9798261372, 3054108

 

The Patna Municial Corporation has its mobile application, you can download it and make a complaint. Here is the link to download from the Google App store: Apna Patna - Android Apps on Google Play

 

Remember that the City Roads are maintained by the Municipal Corporation except the National Highway and State Highways and in the rural areas it is by the PMGSY. Most of the time the state Chief Minister wants to cash this oppurtunity and in majority of the cases, they would be more than willing to entertain such complaint. Every IAS officer once he becomes Municipal commissioner or District Magistrate, he too usually ventures into Health, Roads e.t.c So do check up websites of the Municial Corporation. In your case the Patna Municipal Corporation website is here- https://www.patnanagarnigam.in/

 

Second Course

 

If the above method doesn't work, the second best way is to lodge a complaint at the toll free number 1800-345-6161 or Maintenance Cell: 0612-2545047 These numbers are that of Road Construction Department.

 

On the Sidelines

 

If your road is that of Pradhan Mantri Grameen Sadak Yojana (in the rural areas which connect each villages with the main roads), then the Ministry of Rural Development has brought out a Google App called Meri Sadak. With this app you can make a complaint on PMGSY Roads directly.

 

And for filing RTI, you may refer this post https://www.rtiindia.org/forum/166021-bad-roads-complain.html#post398357

      As reported by Radhika Oberoi of TNN in timesofindia.indiatimes.com on 20 August 2008:
      Citizens blame corruption for bad roads-Delhi-Cities-The Times of India
      Citizens blame corruption for bad roads
       
      NEW DELHI: If potholes, cracks and sudden depressions on the road seem to be part of your everyday commute in the city, it's time to shake off the apathy and ask MCD a few awkward questions. Like Mohit Goel, a resident of Model Town did when the recent patchwork repair undertaken by MCD began to disintegrate.
       
      Or as did S P Gupta, general secretary, Residents Welfare Association, Old Rajinder Nagar, when he found that the road in front of Salwan School had broken down despite it being converted from "dense carpet" to "cement concrete" — a kind of road that simply should not crumble.
       
      Both Mohit Goel and S P Gupta took recourse to RTI. They wanted to know who was responsible for the shoddy work. Not just that, both obtained permission to take a sample of the road and get it examined by the Shriram Institute for Industrial Research.
       
      The results were not entirely unexpected. In both cases the contractors had used less cement than required. The road in front of Salwan School, for instance, used only half the required quantity; gravel and sand were added in much higher proportion. As for the Model Town road, the proportions were all wrong.
       
      Needless to say, the contractors had made a killing by using inferior materials. But what about the MCD officials who were supposed to supervise the work? They winked at it, raising suspicions of collusion. As it happens, in the Salwan School road case, the RWA has filed an FIR against MCD.
       
      If roads are being reduced to rubble in the city, the heavy downpour might be a part of the reason. But the real reason possibly is one of the worst kept secrets of the city — there is rampant corruption in road construction. But it's not something that the authorities are ready to accept, even though Goel and Gupta have virtually proved it.
       
      Coming back to Goel, he sought answers this April, under RTI, on the road in front of his house in Model Town. He asked for an inspection of the area under the supervision of an engineer, a measurement book (with road dimensions), as well as samples of road material in the vicinity of his home, for a ratio analysis test.
       
      As a result of his query, he found out that the total estimated cost of building the 96.50 metre x 5.13 metre stretch was Rs 6 lakh.

      Hi,
       
      I need to confirm that who is responsible for the road management. The main najafgarh road in Uttam Nagar is in worst shape and has not been repaired for last so many years. After few months and near elections, they just fill in patches and that worsens the situation as it create gaps in roads. So just wanna know that who is responsible for these roads.
