The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) is working on an indigenous smartphone mobile application for its three lakh jawans.
The new app is likely to be out in a month's time. India Today has learnt that a former IITian has been roped in to develop the application.
CRPF personnel will be able to use it for a host of things, from sending their leave application to checking debit and credit details on their account.
Most importantly, they can use the app for registering complaints of any nature with the authorities.
The new app comes at at a when a CRPF jawan's video on lack of amenities has been going viral. In the video, CRPF constable Jeet Singh also complains about alleged lack of pay parity between military and paramilitary forces.
Reacting to the video, CRPF Director General K Durgaprasad said, "We do not encourage soldiers to react on social media."
"I am hereby advising my officers to go to the field and have face-to-face conversations with the soldiers," the DG said.
