This app has been slowed down from Ukraine and Germany. Our team has been working round the clock to fix the issue. Although the app is functioning slowly, it's still working, Alam also stated.

The EC secretary also said that the news of the app being developed at a cost of Tk21 crore is incorrect. 

The app is only a part of a six-year project worth Tk21 crore. The project is in its first year, and barely Tk8 crore has been spent so far, he added.
