(The Gist of PIB) Saiyam



  • A mobile application named Saiyam has been developed by the Pune Municipal Corporation under Smart Cities Mission (SCM).

Key highlights:

  • The Mobile Application has GPS tracking so that whenever quarantined citizens leave their homes, City Administration gets alerted and the local ward or the local police station gets informed, who then visit the family. 
  • All the Home Quarantined citizens are given the mandate to download the app and install it. 
  • These identified citizens are advised to keep the GPS feature on the device always switched-on and the mobile device should be switched-on throughout the 24 hours, during the quarantine period. Citizens’ movements can be monitored centrally real-time from the monitoring cell and are marked as Red, Amber or Green. 
  • Red signifies that the person has ventured out for a longer duration; Yellow signifies that the person has limited movements and Green signifies that the person is confined to house limits.
