Islamabad (25th May 2017) In the spirit of democratic governance, revolutionary polices and visionary approach, present government of Pakistan gives very high priority to the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector particularly e-Governance for good governance and better public service delivery to citizens of Pakistan.
The Minister appreciated the efforts of MoIT, NITB technical team and CDA officials for taking such initiative to empower the citizens of Islamabad with indigenously developed mobile application that not only can help them to explore city life but also equip each citizen with instant access to various government departments, utilities, law enforcement agencies and most critical emergency contact numbers based on user’s location. With significant improvements in mobile broadband coverage in the country in last 4 years, it is the right time to proliferate citizen facing mobile applications across all sectors.
