Gaya civic organization to install QR code in 70,000 homes | Patna News


GAYA: With the aim of ensuring a clean and smart city, the Gaya Municipal Corporation (GMC) has decided to install a QR card in more than 70,000 homes under the municipal area by March of next year to ensure regular garbage collection. The installation of the QR card was entrusted to a private agency.
The GMC recently secured first place among all urban local bodies in the state with a population of less than 10 lakh at Swachh Survekshan 2021.
The project has already started. The municipality is also developing a mobile application where citizens will register their complaint, if the garbage is not collected in their homes or localities. In response to the complaint, the garbage will be picked up or lifted within 2-3 hours.
Garbage lifting will be monitored from a control room which will be made operational at the GMC office. At the front door of each house, a white card with QR code will be installed. The cleaning staff would scan the QR code with their cell phone, after which the code in the control room would turn green. To ensure that the cleaning staff do not skip their duty, a biometric presence system will be put in place.
A GPS has also been installed in vehicles used for garbage lifting to track their location and ensure transparency. If there is an irregularity in the lifting of the garbage, the owner can file a complaint with the control room.
Mayor Birendra Kumar alias Ganesh Paswan said: “The project would be carried out in the 53 neighborhoods. The agency in charge of the works would very soon set up a control room and other necessary infrastructure.
He added: “We have often received complaints from people that garbage is not being picked up in their homes or in a particular locality. On some occasions the negligence of the cleaning staff was also revealed. The QR card would ensure transparency. People will be able to register their complaints, if any, on the application under development for this purpose. ”
