As part of fine-tuning office work, the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) is adopting the IDEAS-File Tracking System developed by the National Informatics Centre (NIC) in its offices.
Although it is being launched as an in-house mechanism at first, the ultimate aim of the project is to enable consumers to keep track of their files in KSEB offices across the state. IDEAS stands for Information and Data Exchange Advanced System and the KSEB has taken a cue from the Government Secretariat in adopting it for its own use.
‘’We are now launching it in the corporate office of the KSEB in Thiruvananthapuram so that the top officials can keep track of the files. In the next phase it will be adopted at our offices across the state and, ultimately, it will be made available to the public so that they track files related to their applications,’’ said Angus Sudley Cardoza, Chief Engineer (IT-Projects) and Safety Commissioner, KSEB.
In sync with the changing times and taking an effort to present a new face to the consumers, the KSEB has asked its officers not to allow files gather dust in office shelves.
Files are to be disposed off at the earliest, officers have been asked.
Chief Minister Oommen Chandy had inaugurated the IDEAS-File Tracking System at the Secretariat in November.
