STATE TIMES NEWS Srinagar: Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB) has introduced a new mobile-based application for pilgrims intending to undertake the annual pilgrimage to the holy cave shrine in south Kashmir Himalayas, an official said on Tuesday. “The app is designed and developed by the National e-Governance Division (NeGD) of the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeITY),” a SASB spokesperson said.

It incorporates special features like SOS call alert system, live tracking of ‘yatris’, push notifications, the spokesperson added. “Yatris can login using their yatra permit form number and may allow the app to access the device’s location to enable their live tracking.
