Culture Minister Mahesh Sharma has launched Swachh Bharat app at the National Museum in New Delhi. The app will enable visitors to report garbage on the premises of the ASI monuments across the country. Around 30 galleries in the National Museum have already been equipped with a device that will make use of the intranet to connect to the app.
The services of the app will be soon rolled out in 116 monuments under the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) across the country. The devices installed in the monuments will connect to this app using Bluetooth. The devices will have a range of around 30 metres.
The visitors with the help of the app would be permitted to report the culture ministry any litter or garbage on the premises of the monuments.
The app is available for Android mobile phones. As soon as the visitors enter the premises of the monuments and switch on the Bluetooth, the app will relay Swachh Bharat-related information to the visitors and will ask them to report any garbage around them.
Even if the visitors have not installed the App on their handsets, a message will be delivered by Google about the Swachh Bharat Abiyan and will provide the visitors with a link to install the App.
The Swachh Bharat App will be monitored by the Ministry of Culture. The App is expected to promote cleanliness in the premises of ASI monuments.
