DDA launches app to get citizen inputs on parks
In order to get feedback on the maintenance of its parks, the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) on Monday launched a new web-enabled application which can be accessed from the DDA website www.dda.org.in through the homepage link ‘Feedback for Maintenance of DDA parks’. Through the application, citizens can register their feedback regarding <g data-gr-id="17">maintenance</g> of the green covers under the authority all over Delhi.
Launching the application, Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung said that the DDA has done <g data-gr-id="23">good</g> job in increasing the green cover <g data-gr-id="24">specially</g> the bio-diversity parks which are of international standards. He also added that the application will facilitate not only providing a healthy feedback but will also provide a window through which citizens will be participants and partners in the maintenance of parks and various other green zones developed by the DDA.
Emphasising the importance of IT, he said: “It is our lifeline now and though it has not been adopted on a large scale by the government, it needs to be implemented to make governance citizen-centric. This application should be reviewed/audited after every three-four months to find out the ground reality and scope for improvement etc.”
Speaking on the occasion, DDA Vice-Chairman Arun Goel said: “This is a new initiative which will start a new era of feedback/public interface in the DDA through various applications. It will provide a platform through which there will be <g data-gr-id="19">direct</g> interface between users and those executing various works. This initiative needs to be further improved and expanded to give better service to our citizens.”
