Grievance redressal officer is assigned by the department to redress the grievances. This officer performs the field enquiry and takes a necessary action to redress thegrievance.

LMF is the functionary or officer, who is the competent authority to deliver a service. On the other hand GRA or Grievances Redressal Authority is the officer, who is responsible for the quality redressal of the grievances. The GRA is the higher authority above the LMF.

Since the New SPANDANA is limited to the grievances only and no service requests are being accepted (For service requests, citizen has to approach Grama/Ward Sachivalayam), the LMF option doesn’t exist and GRA requests the subordinate officer to conduct an enquiry and will take a necessary action against the grievance and is responsible to redress the grievance.

When a grievance is redressed by the grievance redressal officer in Spandana portal, citizen will receive an update in the form of SMS.
If you are not happy with the redressal of a grievance, you can Re-Open the grievance by calling 1902 or by visiting Grama/Ward Sachivalayam or using Spandana portal (https://www.spandana.ap.gov.in/) or usingSpandana mobile app.
Once a grievance is re-opened, it will be assigned to a District Level Officer who is above the previous grievance redressal officer. The District Level Officer will perform necessary enquiry and redresses the grievance accordingly.
You should re-open the grievance only when you are not satisfied with the previous redressal of the grievance. You can re-open the grievance twice. When a grievance is re-opened at the first time, it will be assigned to a District Level Officer. If you are not happy with the grievance redressed at District Level, then you can re-open it second time and then it will be escalated to the HoD level.
