e-District

Scheme Background

e-District is a State Mission Mode Project under the National e-Governance Plan. The project aims to target high volume services and undertake backend computerization to electronically enable the delivery of these services through Common Service Centres (CSC).

e-District has been envisaged by Government of Tamil Nadu as automation of workflow and internal processes of District Administration with the possibility of seamless integration of various departments including Revenue, Adi Dravidar and Tribal Welfare, BC & MBC Welfare, District Social Welfare, etc. for providing services to the citizens. This project is of paramount importance to the State as it would help in creating an automated workflow system for the district administration and help in providing efficient department services through Common Service Centres (CSCs) – the primary front end channels envisaged under the NeGP program by Department of Information Technology (DIT), Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT), Government of India (GoI).

Project Objective

The broad objectives of the project include

IT enablement of internal processes of district administration and subordinate offices to increase functional efficiency.
Automation of workflow and internal processes of district administration
Seamless integration of the departments for providing services to the citizens - by integrating various District databases
Infusion of transparency and accountability in operations
Reduction of workload of officials involved in service delivery
Develop mechanism for maintaining of the departmental electronic database
To enable easier access to government services and dissemination of information required by the citizens
Creation of IT infrastructure for rolling out e-Governance plan up to the Taluk levels
To provide self-sustainable operational model extending Taluk levels with zero-down failure risk.
Capacity building to empower employees to own and operate the IT enabled Systems with confidence.

Scope of work

The scope of the program is to cover maximum G2C and G2G/E services provided in the district through the use of ICT, the services in the district which are delivered through Taluk level are brought under the ambit of e-District. The program will be strategically planned to provide integration with ongoing/planned initiatives of the Government under NeGP such as TNSWAN, State Data Centers, e Services, Common Service Centers etc.

The e-District program will be implemented on a pilot scale where various departments and other e-governance initiatives in areas of Revenue, Social Welfare, etc. would be integrated. An integration of this kind will provide for seamless flow of information within departments reducing the dependence on manual processes and bringing in greater transparency in service delivery to the citizens

As a part of the Capacity Building exercise, the program will aim at developing an institutional framework for e-Governance implementation in the district. The e-District program will identify areas for process re-engineering which can remove the redundant and non value added services from the existing procedures at all levels of the administration and redesign them to cater to the expectations of the citizens in a better way. The government would have to redefine and redesign itself at all levels using initiatives like BPR and Capacity Building.

The scope of the program includes implementing the model e-District in five pilot districts and providing assistance in development of a RFP for statewide roll out based on the pilot e-District implementation. Thereafter, the rollout of the application across the state, based on this RFP, would be taken up by Government of Tamil Nadu.
