with 0 Comment
The mobile revolution has touched the lives of individuals residing in different corners of the world in social, economic and cultural aspects. mBillionth is such a platform that explores the potentiality in mobile and telecom industry in South East Asia. It covers 8 countries that include Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Further, it recognizes and honors excellence in mobile communications across South Asia. This year, mBillionth is entering into its 5th year of recognizing the best practices for social development via Mobile as a first screen.


In the present context, people work and socialize their life through cell phones. The reason to increasing mobile penetration is the accessibility and reliability that lies within the mobile and telecom industry. Realizing this, mBillionth has been devoted to raising a common ground where all the mobile and telecom industries in South Asia fall together. This common platform to acknowledge the number of mobile and telecom industries has given rise to a sense of competition between these industries in regional and international level. As a result, it has given these industries a chance to sharpen themselves and flourish innovatively.

mBillionth has listed various categories to recognize and honor the excellence in mobile and telecom industry across South Asia. The categories include: m-Business & Commerce, m-Education & Learning, m-Culture & Heritage, m-Agriculture & Ecology, m-Health, m-Travel & Tourism, m-News & Journalism, m-Entertainment, m-Governance, m-Women & Children, m-Inclusion.

Janaki Technology Pvt. Ltd. is proud to be standing as the finalists in two categories: m-Governance and m-Entertainment. Departmentof Foreign Employment (DOFE)'s service of providing 'Labor Permit via SMS' has been selected as one of the finalists. One of the noteworthy efforts from DOFE and an innovative service for public, with SMS support from SparrowSMS is one of the finalists. The service was initiated by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DOFE) to check the Labor Permit status via SMS, the SMS system which has facilitated thousands of people to check their labor permit status just by sending a simple text via their mobile phones which has saved a lot of time, effort and money was introduced with the collaboration with SparrowSMS for which it has been chosen as the nominee in the m-Governance category. There are other five nominees in the same category. 

Similarly, Picovico has been nominated under the m-Entertainment category where there are 8 other finalists. The competition is fierce but to be standing as a nominee in such recognized platform is a great achievement in itself for the company.

Type G<Your Group No.> and send SMS to 35001.

It obviously is great news for all the Nepali people now that the World Cup fever is viral in our country. We do not have to worry or rely on others to feed us the scores. The time schedule is perfect for the FIFA World Cup 2014 except one day in a week, where we have to miss the first fifteen minutes. For every group, there is one day in a week where the load shedding is scheduled up to 10 p.m. Other than this, it is time to relax and enjoy every bit of the game for this season.
