“Right now we are using both technology and humanitarian approach to control the lockdown. This app will help law-abiding citizens to go out of their home in case of emergency or essential services during the lockdown with a valid permit,” Kaviraj said.
The permission is being sent on email of the applicant but from Sunday onwards it will be also available inside the application to help people who don’t have knowledge of using e-mail.
“We will also start Hindi version of the application from tomorrow,” Kaviraj said.
Many companies involved in essential services have complained about police on road punishing their employees during the lockdown.
The developer of the app Data Ingenious GLobal Limited said that the launch has been done to address the immediate need of the people during the lockdown and its team is working from home to bring changes that will be asked by the government.
“In this difficult time of coronavirus impact, we were asked to do the lockdown pass work by the government. We took it as a challenge and our team worked from home continuously for four days and I am glad that we could deliver an advance lockdown pass system to ease the life of people involved in essential services,” Ajay Data CEO, Data Ingenious GLobal Limited said.
