At present, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation is using technology for optimum public participation. The mobile-based application (App), “My city my pride”, which ensures public participation in the corporation affairs, will shortly cover the development authority as well.
Users of Android phones can download the free App from Google Play Store and start contributing their share towards keeping the city smart and clean. One has to give personal details, including the area or ward in which he or she lives.
The App is also linked to the corporation’s helpline number — 18003450061 — under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan mission, and the complaints received from the citizens are also getting tagged to the similar posts on the App.
