Inorder to prevent the homeless people in Delhi from dying in cold the Delhi Government has launched a unique app Rain Basera through which anyone who sees the homeless on roads can click the image and post it to the app. It will automatically be detected by the rescue team that can safely provide night shelter to the homeless.
The app will also contain the list of shelters through which the person can immediately call the nearest shelter and let them know about the homeless.
The DUSIB has formed around 23 rescue teams fully empowered with vehicles and manpower to take the homeless to the shelter
A round clock control room is set by the Government at ITO for all sorts of complaints, grievances, donations etc related to the cause.
A Govt. official explained the process to download: “The users can give a missed call on 8826400500 following which they will receive an SMS containing the link to download this application. It can also be downloaded from the Google Playstore here”.
