Kashmiri students create App on flood information
Saturday October 11, 2014 5:45 PM, IANS

A group of Kashmiri students studying in a private engineering college in Punjab have developed a unique android application (app) which gives all information related to the recent floods in Jammu and Kashmir on one platform.

Named 'Save Kashmir', the app was launched Saturday by Punjab's Technical Education Minister Madan Mohan Mittal.

The app, developed by five Kashmiri students of Aryans College of Engineering, 25 km from here, contains all information about the flood-hit state, including the list of missing people, list of the dead, donation links, government helplines, affected people and areas and location of relief camps.

The students - Mudasir, Adil, Tahira, Aashu and Rumaisa, who developed the app said: "During the floods, there was no common platform for information providers and seekers. We were also unable to contact our parents for a few days. It was then that we thought of developing the app."

Aryans Group of Colleges chairman Anshu Kataria said that the app will help people as it can be accessed by anyone.

The college management provided the funds for developing the app, along with technological support.

Jammu and Kashmir was severely affected by unprecedented floods early September. Lakhs of people were marooned across the state for days.
