The Kerala Water Authority (KWA) is the latest among the government departments to go tech savvy as its software ‘Project Status Alert System (PASK), which enables the public to check the status of ongoing projects and monitor their progress, will be placed in the public domain on Wednesday. 

PASK was an in-house idea of the KWA which was conceived almost an year back. The mainstay of the software is that it allows an effective interface between the KWA and the public. The software facilitates effective monitoring of the ongoing projects. The public can subscribe to the application which is available on the website of the KWA - pask.kwa.kerala.gov.in

The application will house profiles of projects that are currently being undertaken by the department. All the details of the project, including its objective, advantages, time of completion, allied projects, contact numbers and details of project coordinators will be available to the public.

This technology is expected to bring an end to the bureaucratic lethargy as the work progress and expected time needed for project completion will be recorded in the profile. The officials of the department are of the view that the project would help reduce the paper work which is impeding  the pace of most of the projects.

‘’We currently have 200 projects with us and almost 60 more are on the pipeline. So, manual supervision and monitoring has almost become impossible. That is why we decided to launch this new software. It is impressive and workable,’’ said KWA Managing Director Ashok Kumar Singh.
