‘DDA to launch new apps for consumer benefits’
In a bid to create systems to provide the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) consumers convenience through speedy redressal of grievances and timely delivery of services, the newly-appointed DDA Vice-Chairman, Arun Goel, pledged to launch a host of new mobile apps. While there will soon be an app for online filling of measurement books, another app will monitor the quality of roads diverted to facilitate development projects and yet another app will take online feedback from allottees of new housing schemes.
The V-C said that by leveraging technology and fixing standards and timelines, accountability will be increased. He also informed that the process of complete computerisation is being speeded-up and the mobile app for online filling of measurement books is on the cards.
“The site engineers will fill up the measurement details of a project online from the site and the GPS coordinates will be captured while filling the measurement books to ensure that actual measurements are being taken at the site etc. This will help in controlling the proper utilisation of material as well as timely execution of projects,” said Goel adding that the second app is for feedback on community halls in which the general public will give reviews about the quality of the services.
The third app is for monitoring the quality of roads diverted to facilitate development. “It is generally observed that the quality of roads is compromised with when a road is diverted to facilitate <g data-gr-id="36">development</g> of a project. The app is being developed to monitor it so that during the intervening period there is no inconvenience faced by commuters. The width of the roads, potholes, and smoothness of the roads, road berm and proper speed of driving/levelling with the surroundings will be the parameters for the feedback of general public,” added Goel.
Aiming to extend sports facilities to children, the V-C said: “Vacant lands, especially adjoining inhabited areas would be identified, levelled and grassed and for maintenance of these play fields, these lands would be fenced, water and electricity connection provided and amenities like drinking water, changing rooms, toilets and maintenance shed, will also be provided. Play equipment like basketball poles, volleyball posts, cricket mats, football goal posts, etc, would be provided free of cost.”
