The app provides photographs of the vehicles used to violate lockdown norms. It also records why the motorist has come out of home and the exact place where it was checked when police scan the vehicle and upload the details.

"Using this app, the police can monitor all checkpoints to ascertain how many people are using the checkpost and why," said Superintendent of Police K Vamshi Krishna. He said that the app provides evidence of a violation of lockdown norms and facilitates the police to take legal action against the violators.
