Mobile app launched to monitor traffic by Gurgaon's Police Commissioner
Gurgaon's Police Commissioner, Alok Mittal launched a new Google application today to monitor the traffic situation in the city at his office near Civil Lines. Along with the Google app, the commissioner also launched another app software, Sampark, to identify people living in the city hailing from other Indian states.

Addressing the media persons, Alok Mittal said, "This is a Google application, which works as a supervisory tool. We are utilizing this application to monitor the traffic snarls at East, West, MG Road, Golf Course Road, Udyog Vihar and National Highway etc. It  automatically updates in one and half minute. We keep updating it after 4 minutes to watch the state of congestion in the city. We have been utilizing this application for the last 2-3 days, through which, we got real time information. This application will be made available to the Traffic Inspectors and ACPs of Gurgaon.  It is a public utility programme."

This application was required in Gurgaon, for the traffic snarls in the city have been increasing day by day. With Gurgaon MNCs providing employment to a number of people, out of which a large number also comes to the city from other Indian states as well.  As a result of which another software has also been launched, Sampark.

Talking about Sampark, Mittal said, "We were facing a big problem regarding the verification of outstation people. For the employment purpose, various states' people are living in different parts of Gurgaon. Sometimes these people are victimized, their verification becomes a problem for the entire police department. Therefore our in-house technical team has developed this application. This software will fetch information within seconds. Now it will become easier to inform the relatives of the outstation victims. Therefore, we have put the information of all the states, districts and cities police stations, their email addresses and contact details on our site. It took us 45 days to develop this software. There are more than 14000 police stations across the nation."

Mittal was pleased with both the applications and thanked everyone who was a part of the team that helped in developing these applications.
