Bengal Panchayat Dept To Introduce ‘Pratikar’ App


Kolkata: The State Panchayat and Rural Development Department is going to introduce a mobile phone app, to be named Panchayat Pratikar, to help people communicate any sort of information related to the development work being carried out by the government.

There will also be a toll free number, 18002000864, for informing grievances, if any, both through calling and SMS, to the concerned officials.

It may be mentioned that with the overall development in the districts in the past six years, most people now have smartphones. So the app will be helpful for a large section of people.

There will be three-member committees at block, district (zilla) and state levels to look into the grievances.
