Mumbai: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday launched the ‘Green Delhi’ mobile app, using which citizens can bring pollution-causing activities to the notice of the government.
He said that citizens can click pictures or make videos of activities like burning garbage, industrial pollution, and upload them on the application. The complaint will be automatically forwarded to the concerned department.
On Tuesday, Delhi’s Environment Minister Gopal Rai held a review meeting with officials of Police and Public Works Department, Delhi Development Authority, National Highways Authority of India, the three municipal corporations, New Delhi Municipal Council, Revenue and Environment Departments to discuss the grievance redressal mechanism in relation to the application.
A statement issued by Gopal Rai’s office stated that failure to resolve the issue on time would result in action against the nodal officers concerned.
“Nodal officers are provided with training to address issues. Through the Green Delhi application, people will be able to inform the government about water waste, industrial pollution, dust, etc. by filing a complaint online, ”the statement said.
Meanwhile, the Union environment ministry published “The Commission for Air Quality Management in National Capital Region and Adjoining Area Ordinance” on Thursday with the objective of implementing an approach to monitoring, tackling, and eliminating causes of air pollution in Delhi-NCR.
