Water Supply and Sanitation Minister Brahm Shankar Zimpa informed that the Punjab government is planning to launch M-Gram Sewa app across the state. It will be used for all the villages.

The pilot project of M-Gram Seva App in Shri Anandpur Sahib has shown excellent results. Due to this, a positive change is being seen in the society along with improving the lives of the citizens. The M-Gram Seva mobile app was launched in December 2021 to digitize the details of revenue and expenses at the gram panchayat level, increase accountability and transparency in the management of funds for water supply related services.

The pilot project covered 73 Gram Panchayat Water Supply Committee schemes and 85 villages of Sri Anandpur Sahib Division. This app is available on Android and iOS platforms. These include the facility to choose different languages, easy digital book-keeping, online and cash payments, SMS alerts and a system for evaluating the quality of water services.

Principal Secretary, Water Supply and Sanitation Department, DK Tiwari and Department Head, Muhammad Ishfaq said that the M-Gram Seva Pilot Project has made a significant impact on public finance management in Sri Anandpur Sahib Division, increasing accountability and transparency in the process. Mobile App has improved the efficiency of fund management, thereby providing better services to the people. There are plans to use this app in other mandals across the state as well.

These facilities are available in the app
With the implementation of M-Gram Sewa App, there have been several improvements in the revenue collection and monitoring system. Prior to the implementation of this app, only 20 out of 73 Gram Panchayat Water Supply Committees (GPWSC) were maintaining their records in a documentary manner but now all the records are being maintained digitally on the app in a very efficient and pleasant manner .

Consumers can now make online payments through various options and payment reports including bill generation are sent by SMS. Along with this, this information is also available on WhatsApp. Zimpa said the app’s dashboard provides snapshots of recoveries and expenses. These are available to sarpanches and other gram panchayat members and the consumer rating system available in the app has improved timely identification and redressal of water supply related problems.
