The government body said that it is the first municipal body in India to launch the WhatsApp Communication system. This WhatsApp-based automatic grievance registration system will also make it possible for citizens to track the progress of registered grievances in real-time. It will also pave the way for the flow of information on important announcements, updates, periodic events, helplines, etc. At an appropriate time, the service will also include critical information on vaccine rollout modalities in Chennai for beneficiaries.
