Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony, Pakistan has launched an electronic monitoring system (EMS) for Hajj 2019. This has been developed for immediate resolution of inquiries and complaints that are submitted by aspiring pilgrims during Hajj days. The Ministry has launched the app in collaboration with the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB).
