After getting a successful response from Lahore and Multan, the government of Punjab is gearing up to introduce ‘Rasta’ mobile application for Sialkot as well.
‘Rasta’ is developed by the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) in collaboration with City Traffic Police Lahore (CTPL) and has so far received an overwhelming response from the citizens of two major cities. The application has been downloaded 183,460 times in these cities.
The application not only provides a solution for traffic-related issues, it updates the user regarding the traffic jams due to roadblocks, sit-ins, protests, and construction work but also suggests alternative routes.
PITB said the application will soon be launched for the people of Sialkot.
The application also allows users to register complaints with concerned authorities about broken roads or any other hurdles in the city.
Other prominent features of the ‘Rasta’ application are that the citizens can submit E-Challans, apply for E-Licensing or E-Testing through this application. People can also check the details about driving license delivery by merely entering their CNIC numbers.
Moreover, the application also offers information about nearest hospitals, parks, and historical places. It is available in both Android and iOS versions and can be easily downloaded from Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
