Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development has launched a mobile phone application ‘Call Sarzameen App’ to swiftly address the issues facing Pakistani expatriates and their families.*
The application was formally launched following the complete success of its pilot project. The app’s web portal was introduced in November last year on trial basis which received around 531 complaints, out of which, 361 had been resolved while 96 were in process, Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development Zulfikar Bukhari told state-run wire service.
He said the app was developed by the overseas ministry in collaboration with the National Information Technology Board (NITB) to introduce e-governance in his ministry and provide the Pakistani diaspora instant relief by solving their issues swiftly.
Bukhari said he would monitor the complaints himself, in addition to the Prime Minister Office, adding that “this is our valuable asset and we would work day and night for their betterment.”
“The developed countries have switched to paperless culture and we have to embrace the modern technologies to bring real change in the prevailing system,” he remarked.
He urged overseas Pakistanis to download the ‘Call Sarzameen’ and allow their country to serve them in a better and efficient way.
