An official spokesman said the 'mySrinagar' mobile app also has emergency helpline service.
The 'mySrinagar' app will work as a robust mechanism facilitating real-time information dissemination to the user, besides making information related to tourist attractions and destinations in Srinagar city available on a single platform, the spokesman said.
More than 40 services from various line departments including 20 Srinagar Municipal Services are being offered through the app. It also supports the GIS-based grievance management, he said.
The Lt Governor directed the officials to collaborate with the departments and integrate services like building permissions, electricity, and water connections with the 'mySrinagar' mobile application for ease of access by the people.
The Lt Governor also e-inaugurated multiple projects of Srinagar Smart City including Variable Message Displays (VMDs) installed across the city, besides dedicating the new surface car parking at Residency Road here to the public, the spokesman said.
Speaking on the occasion, Sinha underscored that the J-K Government, through its continuous endeavours, is exploring all the possibilities to develop Jammu and Srinagar into world-class modern, sustainable and vibrant cities.
“These new initiatives are in line with our mission of making cities sensitive to the needs of citizens and our vision of evolving them through the use of modern IT & other interventions, enabling seamless information access and better service delivery,” he said.
Sinha said there is a need to adopt meaningful ways and means to cater to the ever-changing needs of citizens, to acknowledge the limits of available capacities, and strive dynamically to address the same.
