The National Informatics Centre (NIC) has reportedly developed a new mobile application that will help ensure 24×7 electricity across the country. The crowd sourcing mobile app will help in collecting real-time consumer feedback on the quality and availability of power from across the country.
The pilot project will be rolled out shortly in all the Union territories and in states such as Odisha, Uttarakhand, Assam and Bihar.
The app named Jagruk (aware) will also have an automatic mode in which the power supply data will be collected during the charging of the phone. The app will help in collecting real-time electricity supply data. With electricity being on the concurrent list, it is for states to ensure quality, reliable and affordable electricity to consumers. All states and union territories had inked memorandum of understandings providing details of the ‘Power for All’ road map.
