In the current pandemic situation of COVID-19, the Indian government has imposed nation-wide Lockdown in order to save human lives. As a precautionary measure, people had already stocked up some of their daily essentials worth few days. But as the lockdown gets extended, people around the country are facing difficulty in gathering their daily requirements. People from the lower income group and daily wage earners, who are currently out of jobs, have been particularly hit hard by this situation. Though the government has adopted certain measures to ensure supply of daily essentials through authorized ration dealers, but the initiative is getting affected due to lack of supplies.
In order to help the humanitarian cause various NGOs, Corporate houses and individuals have now stepped up and are supplying various required items like food, medicines etc. to the needy people. But it has been found that in most of the cases few persons are repeatedly receiving the donations while the real needy persons remain deprived of the same. This problem is happening as currently there is no database on the same, so it is not possible to keep a track of donations.
In order to systemize the process so all the needy people can access to the donations, Indev Consultancy Pvt. Ltd. (Indev) is developing a mobile application which will be primarily implemented Goutam Budh Nagar, Noida. Indev has worked as technical partner of FXB India for this project.
In order to donate something to society any NGO, Corporate house or Individual entities will contact District Administrator (DA) office. DA office will provide them a registration link, where they will register themselves by giving the basic information like Name, E-mail, Contact etc. Once it is done, the DA office will provide them the link to access the app along with a Username and Password to access the app.
At the time of donating goods to the needy, one can access the details of the donation receiver by simply putting their contact number. At first as there will be no database, the donation provider will simply register the receiver in the database by asking and filling some basic questions like Name, Number, address, Age, number of Family members etc. Once the details are filled, people will receive their share of items.
This database will be stored in the server so it can be accessible by other service providers in near future. Next time, any party interested in donating in the same area, they can easily find out the last time of donations, who were the receivers and what are the items donated. They can plan their deliverables accordingly.
By this system, it will be possible to reach out to maximum population with donations by minimizing the chances of repetition.
