Big move by Arunachal CM to bring more transparency in the governance

The Arunachal Pradesh government has come up with an unique solution to cut down both the load and costs of paperwork at various government departments. Couple of days back, The Arunachal Chief Minister Pema Khandu launched the ‘CM Dashboard,’ that will help the state government to monitor the execution and implementation of various development projects and schemes of the Centre and the State Government.

“The web-based real-time monitoring system will help us in assessing the performances of each districts and the departments and in ensuring effective delivery of services and faster decision making,” Khandu said during the inaugural session.

CM Khandu said that the Dashboard will empower the public to directly collect information and monitor over performances of different departments. “This will help the public to directly monitor the performances of each departments and overall of the government,” said the CM.

“This project was one of the few initiatives I had undertaken after taking over as Chief Minister with the objective to curtail corruption and to bring in efficiency by shifting to digital mode,” said the CM. He further went on to say, “old system of paperwork incurs huge costs and delays that cuts down the efficiency of the government” 

Currently only education, health and agriculture departments have been integrated into the system. The CM urged other departments to join it as soon as possible. He asked the departments to provide timely and updated datas to the dashboard in order to serve the purpose of the project.

The CM dashboard project began on 10th Nov 2017. The automated centralised web based dashboard was developed under Arunachal Pradesh State Council for IT & E-Governance (SCITeG) and department of IT & communications.
