The idea they pitched was of a Citizen Journalism, Better Governance and Better Safety app.
The App is called “The God’s EYE”.
The features of the app are:
I) You can report a problem in your locality by using the “add issue” feature and people in your locality will get notified that you’ve added the issue. Then they can then acknowledge that by upvoting it thus, proving the legitimacy of the issue and increasing the priority of the problem and getting rid of hoaxes.
II) The government can then see the list of problems in your area and the priority of each problem, which the government will then try to solve. If you’re satisfied with the solution then you can close the issue.
III) This app comes with an SOS functionality. You push a button and your details will be send to a central organisation which will send you immediate help according to your need. Sort of like 911 for India. Infrastructure for which is underway.
