PATNA, INDIA: The District administration of Munger, Bihar has deployed Bizframe's Mobile Inspector on Android smartphones to monitor MNREGA schemes in all panchayats of all its 8 blocks. This brings in an unprecedented level of transparency of project status and progress of MNREGA projects which are very difficult to monitor, given the remotely located villages and inadept connectivity.
The system provides instant reporting features including image/ photographs and GPS location of the report. Project officers at all blocks have been provided with an Android powered smartphone, which are commonly available in the market. The results have been very encouraging with project officers sending in detailed reports of ongoing projects/ workers on site, images of working labourers, image proof of social audit meetings among others.
Bizframe congratulates the District administration of Munger and its officials for demonstrating a viable path for enhanced visibility in monitoring public welfare schemes and hopes that more districts adopt this low priced and readily available and field-tested mobile solution.
