The DC further informed that the GPS based system is helping the civic body to track the vehicle and detect irregularities in solid waste collection. All the vehicles of IMC have been fitted with GPS devices enabling real time tracking, cost saving, efficient route management and bringing accountability in sanitation management. If the vehicle gives any residential colony or spot a miss, officers concerned at District Administration and Itanagar Municipal Council will get to know that without stepping out of office through system generated sms alerts.
