Since the Commonwealth games, Delhi has had an app, PoochhO, that allows the tracking of even nearby autorickshaws. Using GPS of course. We had recommended the implementation of a similar system of electronic tracking of mining trucks and barges to the Goa government and the center. We had even predicted that miners would welcome the additonal control over their ore.
We are happy that the Goa government has taken the first steps in this direction. We hope that real time alerts and open access to raw data in real time would be enabled. The public at large can then satisfy themselves that the system actually controls illegalities.
