In Jammu and Kashmir, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha has unveiled a mobile application named PROOF, to bring more transparency and accountability in the governance system. PROOF stands for ‘Photographic Record of On-site Facility’. The main objective of this app is to monitor the work progress of all the projects allocated to different departments of the UT and ensure timely completion of these projects.
- The app will give a complete pictorial view of the work along with its geographical coordinates i.e. latitude and longitude and user comments on work progress
- As per the new rules of the UT government, no bills shall be entertained in the treasury unless photographs of projects are uploaded.
- In order to get the bills passed, it will be mandatory to upload geo-tagged photographs to bring in more transparency and accountability in the system.
