The Delhi Government on Tuesday launched the Advanced Green War Room and Green Delhi App for monitoring and controlling pollution in the national Capital.
Environment Minister Gopal Rai said that 13 hotspots were identified in Delhi last year, this time 150 hotspots have been identified. A 21-member team has been formed for the Green War Room. Through the Green Delhi app, citizens of Delhi can send a pollution-related complaint to the Green War Room based on which action will be taken.
Rai said that last year 27,000 complaints were received through the app, out of which more than 23,000 complaints have been resolved. The maximum number of complaints came from the Municipal Corporation of Delhi , the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) and the Public Works Department (PWD) .
“The app serves as a central point of coordination through which residents of Delhi, when encountered with pollution, can convey the complaint to this war room enabling the Government to take further action.
Last year the app was launched for Android phones, but today onwards IOS phones can access the app as well. This app works with 27 departments of Delhi in solving complaints received. It includes departments of the Central Government, Delhi Government, and Municipal Corporation to resolve the problems caused”, he said.
