KMC mayor Bidya Sundar Shakya launched the apps at a programme on Monday. Addressing the function, mayor Shakya expressed the hope that the apps would play a significant role in disseminating the development works carried out by the metropolis to the people quickly and realistically.
He said the Kathmanduites can know about the facilities and services provided by the metropolis, its authority, responsibility and activities with the help of the apps on their smart phones sitting at their homes.
Deputy mayor Ms Hari Prabha Khadgi (Shrestha) spoke of the need of promoting the use of information technology for reaching all information to the people.
KMC executive officer Dhaniram Poudel said the metropolitan city is behind in terms of use of IT and it has to do much in this sector, and the launching of the apps was only the beginning.
