The State Government on Friday launched the online system (e-Nirman) for monitoring execution of projects in an effective manner. Inaugurating the e-Nirman programme of the Works department at the State Secretariat, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said the e-governance programme will bring in transparency and efficiency in the execution of projects by the department.
The objective of the online monitoring of the projects is to ensure that the projects executed by the Works department are completed in time-bound manner. This is a step forwards developing efficiency, fixing accountability and providing good governance to the citizens, he said.
The system would enable tracking the physical and financial progress of works under execution in different divisions and circles. In the first phase, the system will be accessible to all the officials from division to the Secretariat level. It is envisaged to extend the facility to sub-division level by providing scope for citizen interface.
Besides, e-Nirman will ensure project monitoring starting from budgetary allocation, release of funds, calling of tenders, award of contracts, progress of work and utilisation of fund, official sources said.
