The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government will soon be launching a Toilet Finder App for the citizens of KPK, revealed government official from the local government department.
Imranullah Mohmand, assistant coordinator of water and sanitation services cell (W&SC) revealed that for smartphone users the app will be available for download on Nov 19, 2019. It is expected that the app will be available on Google Play Store for Android users and on Apple Store for iPhone users.
He provided these details while briefing Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Science and Technology, Kamran Bangash. He further added that such apps are already available to citizens of different countries including Australia and India but this will be the first time that citizens in Pakistan will be able to benefit from such app.
The app will provide all important details including:
- Location of the toilet
- Distance of the toilet from your current location
- Whether facility is available for male, female, children & disabled person or not
It is expected that the app will use GPS to know your location and then guide you to the nearest toilet through Google Map.
Special assistant to PM, Kamran Bangash, appreciated this step by W&SC which he believes will not only benefit citizens in finding nearest toilet but will also be helpful to make the country clean and green.
He further said that this will project a good image of KPK and will also be helpful to tourists who visit different areas of KPK each year.
