Chandigarh on 27 January 2015 launched a Smart city app named Smart Chandigarh. The app was launched to create awareness on consumer rights and responsibilities and provide all types of citizen-centric and public utility services and information to the residents.
The Android-based mobile application is the first and official mobile application of Chandigarh that would act as an interface between residents and officials.
The app was launched by Vijay Dev, Adviser to the Administrator of Chandigarh. It is a single e-window to all information related to the department and various citizen-centric services.
The app is now available free at Google Play store for Android phone users. Its iOS and Windows Phone versions would be released soon.
The various departments would be directed to route all information and updates through the app and appoint a link officer for the work. The app would become an important platform for redressing grievances.
