APP TO CONNECT INDIAN EXPATRIATES IN DUBAI
For millions of Indian expatriates in Dubai and Northern Emirates will soon be able to fix appointments with India consular officials through a revamped mobile app. This news was published in the Gulf News.
The app is set to be unveiled on the sidelines of 67th Indian Republic Day celebrations. The Indian Consulate in Dubai had launched a mobile app named "CGI Dubai" last year during the 146th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, on October 2.
Anurag Bhushan, the Consul-General of India for Dubai and Northern Emirates, said the mission has scrapped the "passive" first version and is re-launching it.
It will now have facilities for taking appointments with the consulate officials for visa or passport services."The app has been received well.but we want to make it more sophisticated," he said.
The SOS feature would remain as a highlight through which workers in distress can seek help through a free call. The call will connect any Indian in distress to the 24x7 helpline of the Indian Workers Resource Centre that will address the issue.The new version will have geo-tagging facility and the beta version will be made available by the Indian Republic Day. It may be recalled that Indian expatriates have a massive presence in all the parts of UAE. They are doing yeoman service there.
