To address public concerns about smog, the Punjab Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) has released a smartphone application.
At a meeting on pollution control, PDMA Coordination Director Tauqeer Mehmood Wattoo said that the “Sans App” was created in response to orders from the Lahore High Court.
When PDMA established a dashboard, the app was tested, and staff training on how to use the app is presently in progress. Relevant agencies have received passwords for app access.
The appropriate authorities will be notified right away of any complaints made through the app, and immediate action will be taken to address them. Also, complainants will be informed of the progress of their complaints. The official announced that the public would have access to the “Sans App” following the correction of any issues found during the test run.
The PDMA, the metropolitan corporation, the traffic police, the Parks and Horticulture Authority, and the departments of agriculture, transportation, industry, and local government are some of the organisations connected to the app.
To begin with, 65 teams of representatives from several agencies would be assembled to address pollution-related concerns as quickly as possible. These organisations will fight smoke pollution caused by businesses, automobiles, and brick kilns. They will also address issues like burning rubbish, construction debris, and agricultural waste.
