Bengaluru: The State Government has created a web portal and a mobile app where people can submit information about students and others stranded in Ukraine’s war-torn country.
The portal (https://ukraine.karnataka.tech) collects relevant information about people from Karnataka who are stranded in Ukraine, stated the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Management Authority (KSNDMA), which is overseeing and monitoring the portal and app that were established in less than 12 hours.
The details of people stranded in Ukraine can be uploaded by family members and friends. They must supply basic information about the informant, their relationship to the stranded person, and the stranded individual’s details, such as phone number, email address, and location.
The information gathered by the app and portal would be sent to the Ministry of External Affairs’ (MEA) control rooms. The KSNDMA control room will communicate with the informants, providing them with the most up-to-date information and collecting data.
The portal also provides useful information such as contact numbers and email addresses for people in charge at the Central, State, and Indian embassies in Ukraine, as well as helpline numbers.
The Chief Minister’s Office, Chief Secretary, and Nodal Officers are personally following cases of stranded people with the MEA and the Indian embassy in Kyiv, according to the KSNDMA release.
