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."

city have been increasing day by day. With Gurgaon
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."
