A mobile phone app Call Sarzameen has been launched by the federal government. The aim of the app is to address the problem that is faced by Pakistanis and their families living abroad.
Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development Zulfikar Bukhari said that the app’s pilot project was successfully completed and it will be formally launched now.
Bukhari said that a web portal was introduced by the PTI government in November 2018 that received almost 531 complaints from overseas Pakistanis. 361 complaints out of these were resolved successfully while 96 are still in the process.
Also, he said that this application was developed by the ministry in collaboration with the National Information Technology Board (NITB).
Bukhari also said that this is a start towards e-governance and said that immediate relief would be given to the Pakistani diaspora all over the world.
He said that the overseas Pakistanis are an important asset and the government is working hard for their betterment.
He said, “The developed countries have switched to paperless culture and we have to embrace the modern technologies to bring real change in the prevailing system.”
