UTTARKASHI, July 12
District Magistrate Uttarkashi, Dr Ashish Chauhan launched a Mobile App ‘Swachhta Darpan’ to improve cleanliness in the city. While launching Mobile App at district auditorium, DM said that this mobile app was being launched on pilot basis.
With the GPS location the photographs of the areas where garbage is collected or scattered can be uploaded with its location traced the employees will immediately work to clear the garbage.
Municipal Corporation will be responsible for monitoring the process. If anyone throws garbage in the Municipal Campus and its photograph is uploaded into app then challan would be slapped on that person and such provision has been made available in this app. E-district manager Vikas Nayak informed that after reaching Google play store, this app can be downloaded. For this, Aadhar and Mobile number is mandatory.
The residents have welcomed the move and said that if implemented properly the number of people indulging in garbage scattering could be reduced considerably. If successful, this mode of keeping the town clean could be emulated by other towns reeling with the problem of garbage.
