In order to stay connected with city residents, DC Office Chandigarh has launched its official Facebook page by the name DC Office U.T Chandigarh. This page will provide a connection between the current DC of Chandigarh Ajit Balaji Joshi and city residents. The physical DC office is located near Bridge Market, in Sector 17, Chandigarh. With this initiative, people can directly communicate with DC office and post their complaints / suggestions through Facebook.
The official DC Office Chandigarh’s Facebook page has been created to provide an easy platform for the city residents to post their complaints. Many times people find it difficult to take their complaints to the DC office at the right time, maybe due to certain problems. But now these issues can be easily solved while sitting at home. People can bring their complaints into notice of the Chandigarh DC Office any time. They can post their views regarding various wrong practices happening in the society that are against the law or are troublesome for society.
How will Chandigarh DC Office Facebook page help residents?
-People will get the updates of latest developments in the city.
-It will connect government with citizens through social media.
-Information regarding various press releases of the administration might be provided.
-Residents will be able to post their suggestions / complaints. The concerened authorities will look into these complaints and appropriate actions will be taken to solve them as early as possible.
-It is a step towards Smart City.
Chandigarh people seem to be happy with this effort made by UT Deputy Commissioner, Mr. Ajit Balaji Joshi. The Facebook page has got few number of likes as of now but it received 13 complaints on the very first day. These complaints were about various issues related to the city from different areas. One such issue was the problem of labour exploitation in which it was mentioned that the workers had to work for additional hours and their salaries are not paid on time. People even uploaded the pictures highlighting the pending works of various departments.
In order to maintain the privacy personalised settings have been done on the page due to which complaints are not visible on the common wall. Complaints of people will be reviewed and will be forwarded to the concerned departments for action.
