Technology is playing a big role in the ongoing Krishna Pushkarams. The tech-savvy Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu has asked officials to use the latest technology for effective networking of the huge contingent of government officers and staff besides deploying scores of volunteers working round the clock for making the 12-day-long festival a success in Krishna, Guntur and Kurnool districts.
Kaizala, an Android app developed by Microsoft, has made life easy for the multi-disciplinary teams deployed at the Pushkar ghats and Pushkar Nagars.Ease of communication
The app facilitates privacy-based sub-groups which can be coordinated as per requirement. Conducting polls, submission of bills and creation and assignment of jobs are other key features of this app.
For ease of communication between the officials on Pushkar duties, the district administration created 91 groups that keep in touch to take stock of the situation at the ghats and other logistics required to cater to the needs of such a mammoth crowd.
Impressed by its many features, the Chief Minister now plans to institutionalise the app by making it mandatory in day-to-day administration across the State.
Kaizala helps the user in getting work done by tracking bills, assigning jobs, finding location and much more; it’s as simple as chat.
Incidentally, Kaizala in Marathi means “What’s up?”
