DDA develops prototype for mobile app; seeks public suggestion

NEW DELHI: The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has developed a prototype for a new mobile application that would allow applicants to send feedback to the housing authority on construction quality and maintenance services of the flats.

At present the prototype feedback form has four parameters– external finishing of block/facade; finishing of walls; flooring of toilets/bathrooms and flooring of rooms.

The prototype is part of one of the four mobile applications that the DDA is planning to launch soon to facilitate the public.

“The DDA through public suggestions is requesting to know as to whether more parameters should be included or any changes in the nomenclature are required in the parameters,” a senior DDA official said.

Seeking to bring in greater transparency and ease in consumer grievance redressal, DDA is working on the four new mobile applications. Mobile apps are also being developed for monitoring the quality of roads diverted to facilitate development and for online filling of measurement books.
