Punjab government’s Price Monitoring Mobile Phone App is designed to monitor food commodities’ prices as notified in Qeemat Punjab App. It also monitors the performance of Assistant Commissioners (ACs) and Special Price Magistrates in addition to resolving citizen’s complaints. The app allows listing of corrective actions taken by Special Price Magistrates, uploading of pictorial/video-based inspections by officials and reporting of Wheat and Urea stock details in Punjab markets.
