BENGALURU: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today launched the IAF-HAL ePortal, stated to be the first inter organisation information sharing system (IOIS) under Digital India initiative between a Defence service organisation and a Defence PSU.         

Welcoming the initiative, Parrikar said he hoped that the e-portal will synergise the competencies of Indian Air Force and HAL.            

He stressed the need to take utmost care while managing the portal, which provides authentic information to the stakeholders involved, besides saving considerable time and eliminating the need for frequent joint meetings at various levels, a HAL release said.           

HAL Chairman and Managing Director T Suvarna Raju said the customer centric portal at the company corporate office here would go a long way in leveraging the benefits of information sharing in real time.            

It would also enable the visibility of HAL rotable repair milestones and provide information on status of supply against Aircraft on Ground (AoG), tasks involved, he added.            

Air Marshal S B P Sinha, Deputy Chief of Air Staff, said the ePortal will facilitate secure information sharing between IAF and HAL for better coordination, improved transparency and faster decision making.         

The e-portal will optimise long-term material planning and reduce the repair and overhaul cycle time and reduce time for finalisation of tasking and fixed price quotation (FPQ) processes. The ePortal will ensure reduction in turnaround time and better serviceability of all IAF platforms supported by HAL, the release said.
