The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has launched a new web application allowing citizens to offer feedback on horticulture-related matters to the urban body. The step is taken to make people a partner in maintenance of parks.
The application launched by Lt Governor Najeeb Jung at Raj Niwas in New Delhi can be accessed through the DDA’s official website.
In one of his statements, Jung said- “This will not only facilitate providing a healthy feedback, but will also provide a window through which citizens will be participants and partners in the maintenance of parks and various other greens developed by the DDA.”
As per DDA, the facilities provided in the web application include a search facility through the horticulture division number, locality or park name, and area of the parks.
A citizen, while offering his feedback, has to click on the link and select the park by feeding the name of the locality or the park or park area or the number of the concerned horticulture division of the DDA.
There is also a facilliy for uploading photographs in the registration form. Once the work is complete, the photographs of the area will be uploaded by DDA for perusal of the applicant.
DDA says, “Periodical reports regarding the work completed will be in the public domain, and all photographs or visual evidence of the work done will be archived for future reference.”
