In order to promote more cleanliness and improve its ranking in the Swachh Survekshan 2020, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has put mirrors boards at various locations in the city. But the QR code which can be scanned shows toilets which are far away.
Lokesh R, a pedestrian, at Church Street said, “We have been searching for a long time, we found the QR code. And we scanned but it did not get scanned I think it’s a problem with the scanner. There is one public toilet nearby but it’s not showing on Google map. But it’s showing public toilets which are at Cubbon park.”
When Lokesh scanned the QR code at Chruch Street the nearest toilet was 800m away but when his friend scanned the QR code is shows 230m away. The problem is with the QR code scanner as it shows different toilets nearby in different phones.
BBMP PRO said, “There is a problem with mapping. We will fix that soon.”
Mirror boards are been installed at church street, Koramangala, Indiranagar, queen’s circle and in any other places which cost over Rs.30,000 per mirror board. The expert says that there is not a problem with mapping.
Shivendra Aashish, Senior. Tech Leader at Cray says, “No there is no problem with the mapping. The code uses Google maps, which works properly. The problem is with the server of the BBMP. The app sends queries to the server, but the server doesn’t retrieve the query.”
Therefore BBMP should fix the servers to receive the query quickly.
