“Soon after people register their complaint through PWD Swachch Delhi’ app, it will automatically be sent to concerned area officers who will have to fix the complaints within seven days. “If officer fails, the complaint will automatically be forwarded to senior authorities,” said a senior government official.
Around 1260 km roads of the national capital fall under the jurisdiction. PWD has also responsibility of maintaining some government hospitals, schools and group housing societies.
The official said that the best part of ‘PWD Swachch Delhi’ app is that complainants will not be required to mention their location of the spot because it will be identified through Google maps.
“After fixing the complaint, concerned officers will send the pics of repaired roads potholes on the app so that complainant will get to know about their complaint status,” the official said.
