Chhattisgarh government gives free Haj App facility to pilgrims

RAIPUR: This year, Chhattisgarh government has given free IT-based Haj-App facility to Haj pilgrims of the state, so that they may keep contact and find location of each other during the journey.

According to State Haj Committee president Salim Raj, this Haj App would be operated on Android mobile phone. On the special initiative of chief minister Raman Singh, the state government has developed this mobile application for the Chhattisgarh State Haj Committee. It has been given free of cost to the Haj pilgrims, he added.

The state government has also been providing mobile phone hand set to the Haj pilgrims, which they would return to the Haj committee on returning from the pilgrimage, so that it would be used by pilgrims in the succeeding years.

The State Haj Committee has organised a training programme for Haj pilgrims at the Naveen Vishram Grih Raipur on Sunday, in which they have been given information about the method of using this mobile application.

Salim Raj said, for the first time in the country and the world, Chhattisgarh government has provided this IT based modern technology for the Haj pilgrims of the state. At the concluding function of the training programme, Salim Raj said that this year 332 pilgrims from Chhattisgarh would go for Haj.
