As sunlight returns, flood control officials say their sick app was misleading


SRINAGAR: When people offer jobs to machines and work on autopilot, it happens. Throughout the day the media reported that the Jhelum was crossing the danger mark and once the panic subsided with the return of sunlight to the streets, Irrigation and Flood Control discovered that their app was sick. .

“Due to a technical error, our app incorrectly displays Sangam at “Above Danger Mark” in red color beyond the 21ft mark. The actual danger mark at Sangam is 25ft “, said the department in a” clarification “published on Twitter. “We have taken up the issue with our support team, the inconvenience caused is deeply regretted.”

Tragically, the officials assigned to the post did not find time to check their own application until Kashmir was literally busy reviving their memories of September 2014.

The admission caused a strong reaction from the virtual visitors. Some said irrigation and flood control are apparently in the running with JK Bank, whose apps have also started failing.

“Your mistake caused vulnerable people to think and plan differently. Be professional,” read a response on FB.

Ask the agents to deploy men, machines and sandbags to vulnerable places.

And when people started breathing, the department tweeted. “The 18ft flood warning mark at Ram Munshibagh has been hit. Dwellings residing along the Jhelum River in South/Central/North Kashmir are urged to remain vigilant. The requirement for flooding in accordance with the standard operating procedure (SOP) is in effect.
