Oman-based communications provider Nawras has launched a new SMS service to help its customers easily access Muscat Municipality service centre information by using a mobile phone or handset.

Customers can check the status of building permits, rent contracts, technical inspections, parking violations and other services by simply sending an SMS to the Municipality rather than needing to pay a visit in person.

In a media release, Nawras product manager, Mohammed Al Najwani, said: “We are delighted to work with Muscat Municipality to enable our customers to get closer to the information they need and to access it in a fast and convenient way. Importantly, the information is on hand whenever it is needed.”

This service is useful for any customer who has made an application with the Muscat Municipality and wishes to follow up its progress in an easy way. Each application is given a reference number and with that number in hand, customers can track progress via SMS.

In a similar way, customers may also be able to enquire about parking violations.

This latest service follows the introduction of SMS parking, which enables Nawras customers to send an SMS to pay for parking instead of needing to find the relevant coins to feed a parking meter, the company said.
