What Is Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan Apps

Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan App
Swachh Bharat Mission is a mass movement for cleanliness launched on 2nd October 2014 by the Prime Minister of India. The Swachhta Abhiyan has turned into a National Movement with citizens now becoming active participants in cleanliness activities across the nation. The dream of a ‘Clean India’ once seen by Mahatma Gandhi is being realized with millions of people across the country joining the cleanliness initiatives of the government departments, NGOs and local community centres to make India clean as a part of this ‘Jan Andolan’.
Today, India has approximately 143 Million Smartphone Users who have access to Internet on 2G and 3G mobile platforms. Most of these Smartphones are equipped with at least 5 Mega Pixel Camera and using various Apps (e.g. Whatsapp etc.), people are sharing text,images and videos on the Internet.Therefore, we want to create a Smartphone App to strengthen “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan” called “Swachh Bharat App (Clean India App)”. Any Indian can download this“Clean India App” on their Smartphone.
When a person with this Clean India App, sees any intolerable waste/ garbage dump:
  1.  He/ she will open this App and take picture of the waste/ garbage dump
  2. This picture will get uploaded on the Swachh Bharat National Server (Clean India National Server) along with its geo-location, time and date of upload
  3. National Server will process the image and grade this waste/ garbage dump as Red, Yellow or Green. Red for Urgent Action, Yellow for taking Notice and Green to indicate Clean.
  4. National Server hence places a “Tag” of respective colour on the Google Map (or on ISRO’s BHUWAN) at that geo-location.
  5. Now consider that many persons have uploaded such information, all such Geo-Tagswill be seen to anyone on Google Map (or on ISRO’s BHUWAN).
On the other hand, the Cleaning Agency also has this Clean India App on their Smartphone. So, the person who is responsible to clean that geo-location will also see such Red/Yellow Tags on his Smartphone. So:
  • The cleaning employee hence reaches that Geo-location
  • Cleans this place
  • Takes the new picture on his Clean India App and uploads the new picture on the National Server
  • National Server will process this new image and will once again grade this waste/ garbage dump as Red/ Yellow/Green, depending upon the quality of cleaning.
  • Once again, National Server updates respective “Tag” on the Google Map (or on ISRO’s BHUWAN) at that geo-location 
Therefore, with this Swachh Bharat App (Clean India App), we want to empower all Indian Citizens to report and evaluate the cleanliness of their own colony, city and the country. This App will ensure the liability of respective cleaning agency and they cannot deny from their responsibilities. Since, this information is available on the Internet, anyone, can see the current status of Clean India, 24x7.
