JK to have user accessible State Data Centre
Jammu, Nov 29: Jammu and Kashmir will soon have a centralized State Data Centre (SDC), whereby information of every department would be available at one place, for the users who want to checkout any detail about the functioning of the government offices or seek redressal of their grievances.
The centre to be established at the cost of Rs 37 crore would be set up at Jammu Civil Secretariat and would be completed by June 2011.
A high level meeting chaired by Additional Secretary IT, Saurav Bhagat which was held today reviewed the implementation of the project.
Bhagat heads the J&K E-Governance Agency (JaKeGA) that plans and is entrusted with the execution of the E-governance in the state.
The meeting also reviewed the opening of 300 Point of Presence (PoPs) across the state where the people can seek instant redressal of their grievances. These PoPs would be established under State Wide Area Network (SWAN) plan.
Giving details, Saurav Bhagat told Greater Kashmir that the project is part of the e-governance plan implemented with the help of the central government. He said that the State Data Centre, when completed will provide hassle free services to the users. “It will be like server based in Jammu, having all the data from different departments where common man can get his grievances redressed”.
He said that apart from the hardware part, a State Service Delivery Gate (SSDG) is being created. “It is a Rs 10 crore project to create software resource for the centre which will actually deliver the services”, Bhagat said.
Bhagat said that a SWAN network is being created at each district and block of the state, with V-Sat facility, internet connectivity to fasten the delivery process. “SWAN is a 58 crore project under which 300 PoPs would be created, and work has started on it”, Bhagat said.
It is pertinent to mention here that the primary objective of the Jammu & Kashmir e-Governance Agency (JaKeGA) is to design, deliver and administer E-Governance projects by providing the necessary administrative, financial, legal and technical framework. However state is still far behind in attaining the full computerization of the government functioning.
Bhagat said that JaKeGA will also facilitate establishment of e-service centers throughout the state on public-private partnerships mode to ensure that the public gets the desired information and e-services literally at their doorsteps.
