Itella app is an initiative by the district administration to help people of the district in real time and more effectively in case of emergencies like fire, natural calamities, traffic jam and eve teasing.

He said that in the near future, this app would be integrated with ‘IMDAAD’, an initiative of the district Ganderbal to automate and digitise the process of disaster management processes under SDRF and NDRF.

It would help the general public get the required relief in a very quick and transparent manner and by digitising the processes it would help the administration dispose of the cases in a very efficient manner.

The DC took briefs from the officers and officials regarding the disposal of grievances registered on the Itella app and Governor Grievance Cell.

He urged all the officers to ensure qualitative disposal of grievances in a time-bound manner.

Meanwhile, the officers also shared their suggestions for further improving functioning of the app.
