In March this year, the authority had fixed ₹500 per year as fee to register a pet and asked pet owners to visit the authority office for registration. However, the pet owners did not show any interest in the registration, officials said.
Residents can now register their pets through a mobile phone application as the Noida authority is set to launch the digital service on Wednesday.
“We realised that the pet owners are not registering their pets manually. Therefore, we have come up with a mobile phone application. Since this process is hassle-free, we hope the pet owners will now comply,” said SC Mishra, senior project engineer of the Noida authority.
The app will help the authority compile data on the pets in the city, the officials said, adding that the pet owners will have to download the ‘Noida pet registration’ app and the fee will have to be paid online to the authority.
