Thane Municipal Commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal has said the 'DigiThane' mobile application will give the city residents a stake in civic governance and help boost local businesses.
The app is being developed under the Tel Aviv civic body's guidance, he said.
It uses the technology which earned Tel Aviv the tag of the 'smartest city in the world', Jaiswal said. The development of the app follows the visit of a delegation led by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to Israel in 2015, he said.
The DigiThane concept "provides citizens with information about the government and updates related to their areas, and also encourages them to have a say in the civic administration's functioning," Akov said.
