Bengaluru: The BBMP has installed ticker machines in all the 151 Indira Canteens in the city to ensure that the canteen staff would not be able to mislead the general public on the availability of food at the canteen.
According to the plan, ticker machines will display the number of tokens issued, numbers of meals supplied to the canteen and number of meals available. These ticker machines have been installed following complaints that the canteen staff was misusing a portion of food supplied to the canteens.
Besides this the BBMP has developed a GPS enabled Indira Canteen Monitoring App to ensure coordination between the Indira Canteens and the kitchen staff.
According to the BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad, this app would be used by coordinators for uploading of pics at various stages like food preparation, transportation and distribution.
“At each stage, the coordinator concerned needs to update the status by uploading pictures”, he said.
