BMC’s new app: SWACHHATA App help to keep Bhubaneswar clean #SwachhaBharat #Swachhata #BMC
Another smart move to ensure cleanliness in the city, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) will use an app developed by the Centre under Swachh Bharat Mission.
The app, ‘Swachhata’ will enable citizens to post their complaints related to sanitation and hygiene in their areas. They can also track the status of their complaints through the app.
Android-based smart phones users can avail the services. The Union ministry of housing and urban development has signed an MoU with a Bengaluru-based firm Janaagraha to develop and maintain the app. “The sanitary workers will have to enter their mobile number to register in the app after downloading it from Google play store,” said the letter sent by the government to the BMC.
BMC mayor Ananta Narayan Jena said currently their officers get updated complaints of citizens through the BMC app “my city my pride”. “The Centre’s app ‘Swachhata’ will be an added advantage for us. This will help us improve the sanitation scenario of the city by swiftly acting on complaints, as the sanitary workers will also be a member in it,” said the mayor.
