Now, Apps To Report Civic Issues; Corporations Come Closer To Technology
Municipal corporations across the country have realised the power of technology for tackling civic problems. For instance, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) recently became the first municipal corporation to use space technology to address issues such as encroachment of lakes, illegal dumping of garbage, pothole menace, etc. by liaising with ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation). The three municipal corporations of Delhi introduced a mobile application to enable users to find locations of public toilets nearby, police stations, metro stations, etc.
