Noida residents will no longer have to visit the Water Section Department of the authority for water bills and readings. The Authority is coming up with, Jal App. With this app's help, the user can check the meter reading and the bill. The app also facilitates the payment of invoices and registering water-related complaints.
Authority's OSD Avinash Tripathi has explained that the app's design will be prepared by a consultant company for which Request for Proposal (RFP) will be issued. A master app will also be created in which all the small apps will be added.
These two apps will be launched in the first week of March. The app will come in handy for users since water bills in Noida have to be paid through meter readings. Metre readings are being installed for this purpose. In the first phase, 5000 thousand water meters will be installed. Of these, 4200 water meters have already been installed. In the second phase, 5000 water meters will be installed. The slots will be available to the authority within two days.
All these water meters are small in size and in total, about 40,000 water meters will be installed. In addition, 2000 large water meters have also been installed. These water meters have been installed in society.
The installation of water meters will be completed by March 31. The water bill will be issued according to the meter reading thereon. A user will be able to read the meter readings through the app on his or her phone.
There is 240 MLD of Ganga water available in Noida. Preparations are being made to produce salt water and fresh water in Noida. For this purpose, 90 MLD of Gangajal will be mixed with water from the UGR in March. This is the third phase of the project. Currently, 240 MLD of Gangajal is being delivered in Noida. By mixing this amount of water with Ganga water, the TDS level has been reduced to about 800 to 900.
Currently, there are many complaint apps in addition to the dog registration app and the authority's mobile parking app. By downloading these apps, the phone screen is certainly going to look filled. Moreover, these apps also take up space. To deal with such a scenario, a master app will be introduced. All the small apps will be included in this app. The user will be required to download only the master app.
