The ICT platform, which likely to go live by June 2016, will allow the cities to monitor fleet status through a GPS based vehicle tracking system.

In a statement Shri Praveen prakash, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Urban Development and Mission Director-Swachh Bharat Mission, said ‘The application and platform developed will help the center and individual ULBs to ensure effective implementation of waste management and waste collection’.
