Launching of mobile application for online services to bring revolution in lives of Capital’s dwellers: PM

Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the launching of a modern-tech mobile application will bring a revolution in the lives of the dwellers of Federal Capital after getting various online services at their doorstep.

Speaking at the launching ceremony of the mobile App here at the PM Office on Wednesday, he said the App would be replicated across the country after its implementation in the Federal Capital.

The Islamabad Administration would provide 43 different online services through facility in collaboration with the National Information Technology Board and the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA).

The prime minister appreciated the launch of the service and said the provision of such facilities to the people at their doorstep would take Pakistan into the 21st Century.

He said unfortunately no facilities were provided to the common people in the past and they were compelled to run from one door to another or stand in long queues for getting basic services.

The Capital Development Authority chairman briefed the prime minister about the App and services. There were eight clicks and 43 services in the App.

He said in pursuance of the prime minister’s directive, the services would be provided to the residents online by utilizing the latest information technology.

The objective for the launch of the App was to facilitate the residents without visiting the offices concerned and avoiding the long queues, he added.

He said the App will feature services, like e-Police, emergency services, payment of utility bills, notifications verification, city guide, issuance of domicile, CNIC, land Fard, arm license, vehicle registration, token tax, birth and death certificates and others.

He said information related to coronavirus had also been added in the Application and a complaint against any medical store could be registered if found selling masks, and other related equipment on exorbitant price.
