There are times when there is a delay in completing the process. According to Durga Shankar Mishra, this app will no longer require field verification. Once the toilet is ready, the beneficiary will upload the photos to the mobile app. The officer will then verify it from his office. Then, the amount will be released to the beneficiaries.
The process will be completely transparent. In case of any complaint, the beneficiary can also register the same through the app. It will also enable the beneficiary to see the real-time status of their applications. The Modi government aims to rid India of filth by 2022.
