The project uses the latest technology to eliminate delays and errors in inspection and monitoring of various projects/schemes.  The project has a facility to capture the stage details, Images and Videos of work with other relevant data, carrying out Geo-tagging of work at various stage with GPS coordinates, generating inspection order and mailing the same automatically to inspection officer and ordering authority in pdf format. There is a linkage provided in the system where inspection report’s GPS co-ordinate link would be located and shown on map.
