Complaint Desk

The complaint desk is a web based system that records grievances. Users of the system can report their grievances using a web interface, and all the information is stored on a backend database. The aim of the compliant desk is to empower citizens so that "their voices are heard."

The idea is to build a mechanism which will not only be a source of revenue but will also provide a service to the community by giving people an opportunity to participate in an endeavor that will make their voices heard. To discourage users from abusing the complaint desk service, a user must have a valid credit card that is used to validate identity and to generate revenue by charging a small fee for making a grievance report.
