Chief Minister of Odisha, Naveen Patnaik on 9 November, 2020 launched “Secha Samadhan”, a bilingual portable application for mobile phones, which will help in addressing the water and irrigation issues confronted by the farmers without visiting the concerned departments and offices. He additionally launched four more online administrations and services to determine the issue of water distribution and circulation for commercial establishments, industries and other institutions.
With the starting of the application, farmers need not race to the workplaces of the Water Resources division and can send their complaints through photos or recordings. The farmers in return will be informed about the status of their grievances through SMS. Furthermore, quick advances will be taken to change the complaints of the farmers.
Farmers under the Biju Krushak Bikas Yojana (BKBY), can apply for community lift irrigation points through telephones, PCs or close by Jana Seva Kendras utilizing the mobile application. Essentially, the Water Resources dept. has additionally launched “Go Swift” portal through which industries can apply for water. The division has additionally dispatched the site, www.waterallocationod.nic.in for appropriation of water to commercial businesses and different establishments.
The Chief Minister commented that these computerized applications will make the Water Resources division more responsible and transparent for common people. “Farmers are the biggest recipient of the Water Resources Dept. and their complaints can be settled rapidly by these applications,” he said.
He stressed on making the general society aware of the online services and also directed the division authorities to facilitate and prepare for the computerized move under the 5T initiative. Minister of State for Water Resources Raghunandan Dash said that these administrations will satisfy the objectives of the 5T initiative other than making the organization more productive and responsible.
