The Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Department has deployed a new software that will monitor the works taken up by various departments from the planning to the completion stage. Called Gandhi Sakshi Kayaka,  this is the first such software and will be launched on Wednesday, Minister H K Patil said on Tuesday.

He told reporters here that the software will act as an effective tool to fight corruption.

Every year, Panchayat Raj Engineering Department, Karnataka Rural Roads Development Agency, Karnataka Rural Infrastructure Development Limited and rural local bodies take up around 2 lakh development works worth about `5,000 crore.  Details of work taken up by these departments such as cost, time of completion, and contractors will be uploaded, and citizens can access these details from the website  http:/gsk.kar.nic.in. from Thursday.

The software has been developed by the National Informatics Centre, Bangalore and a central monitoring unit will be located here.

Patil said all bill payment will be done through the new software and no cheque payment will be made henceforth. The new software will help monitor the working of 5,600 gram, taluk and zilla panchayats.

“It is an attempt to overhaul the functioning of Panchayat Raj system in the State,” he said.
