The people of Noida can now get their pets like dogs or cats registered with the local authority by a mobile phone application.
It can be used to register complaints about littering or disruptions caused by the animals.
The Noida Authority Pet Registration (NAPR) app was launched by the authorities. If the people want to register manually then pet owners have to visit the authority's office in Sector 6.
The android version of the app is free of cost on Google Play Store while the iOS edition will be launched in the first week of October.
Noida Authority CEO Ritu Maheshwari said, "Pet registration made it easier! Launched Noida Pet Registration Android App (iOS version in 14 days) to facilitate seamless registrations for pet owners. Residents can also file complaints if the pet litter in public places or creates disruptions."
A fee of Rs 1,000 will be charged for online registration. The pet owners have to provide details like breed, name and sex, along with two pictures of the animal and one selfie with it, within 15 days of ownership.
If the pets cause any issues then other residents can also use the app to raise complaints.
