Background
 In 2009-10, Ministry of Panchayati Raj (MoPR) commissioned a
comprehensive study covering all States and UTs to identify all the
Information and Services Needs of the stakeholders viz. Central
Ministries, State Departments, State line departments (including
DRDAs), Panchayats and Citizens.
e-Panchayat Study Phase - Approach
 Work flow processes of 135 Panchayats across 45 Districts in 34
States/UTs were studied to assess role/responsibilities of Panchayats.
 Needs of 11 Central Line Ministries, 11 State Line Departments
including State PR Deptt., District / Block Administration and
DRDAs and Field level functionaries were assessed at ZP, BP and GP
level.
 23 Central Schemes were examined.
e-Panchayat Study Phase – Approach contd...
 ICT readiness of Panchayats was assessed.
 Internal Automation needs of Panchayats were determined.
 Service delivery needs of the citizens were assessed.
 Gram Sabha meetings/individual/focused group interactions with
citizens.
Deliverables of the Study Phase
 Information and Services Needs Assessment (ISNA), Business
Process Reengineering (BPR) and Detailed Project Reports
(DPR) reports for all States/UTs and at National level. All
these reports can be accessed online at http://epanchayat.gov.in

 This led to the identification of Core Common Applications that
address all aspects of Panchayats’ functioning viz. from internal core
functions such as Planning, Monitoring, Implementation, Budgeting,
Accounting, Social Audit, etc to citizen service delivery like issue of
certificates, licenses etc.
 These Applications have been designed to serve the core internal
needs of not just the PRIs, but also of Urban Local Bodies (ULBs)
and other Central/State line departments like DRDAs.
 Challenging areas like delimitation (change of Panchayat boundaries),
merger of administrative units and decentralized, participative planning
are also being addressed by these Applications.
 States that choose to use other software applications for similar
purposes are only required to map their applications with these Core
Applications to facilitate the development of unified, national-level
information systems.

MoPR is providing all guidance and support to States/UTs for the
implementation of the project.
ServicePlus
 A metadata-based single software framework for defining & managing
the entire life-cycle of services.
 Provides a configurable service delivery framework for any department
to deliver any service – Regulatory, Statutory, Developmental or
Consumer Utility Service.
 Can be a basis for single unified service Portal
 Takes care of All State-specificities like Number and nature of
services, application form design, enclosures, workflow etc.
 DIT has welcomed ServicePlus framework for implementation of
e-District MMP
Geographic Information System (GIS)
 Will facilitate GIS based decentralized planning.
 Will depict the information from other PES modules spatially
for better decision making.
 Discussions underway with MoRD to synergize GIS efforts of
the two Ministries.
 Efforts being synergized with organizations like ISRO and
SoI to facilitate a Space based Information System for
De-Centralized Planning (SIS-DP v.2- Bhuvan-Geo
Panchayat)
 Efforts have been initiated to define Panchayat boundaries.
National Optical Fibre Network (NOFN)
 NOFN to provide high bandwidth connectivity to all Panchayats by 2014.
 States/UTs
have been advised to take urgent action for
developing/implementing IT applications to realize the full potential of
NOFN.
 States/UTs have also been advised to (a) identify the services that can be
delivered through Panchayats (b) stated their preparedness for rollout of
Govt-to-Citizen (G2C) services and (c) provide a plan of action for
delivering services electronically in the year 2013-14.
 Under DeitY, the pilot project on the delivery of G2C services leveraging
NOFN is underway in 3 BPs and 59 GPs in Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh and
Tripura. 100 Mbps connectivity being provided to GPs in pilot locations
and 10 Mbps to the horizontally connected institutions like BDO office,
post office, tele-medicine centres, Digital Knowledge Centres, etc
Convergence with
other Programmes
Planned Integration with External Software
 Integration of relevant PES modules with CPSMS & NREGASoft is
on the agenda.
 e-Municipality of MoUD is considering leveraging the ‘generic’ PES
applications as needs are similar in Urban and Rural areas.
 Metadata and Data Standards (MDDS) for Panchayati Raj domain
are being formulated to ensure standardization and seamless
interoperability among all e-Governance applications in Panchayat
domain to ensure compliance with all national e-Governance
Standards published by GOI, like Data and Metadata Standards for
Person Identification and Land Region Codification, UID, etc.
Note: All the external applications must adopt the Panchayat code
provided by LGD to enable interoperability and data exchange.
Panchayats and Common Service Centres (CSCs)
 Both have footprints right down the Villages and Panchayats.
 CSCs follow a PPP model wherein private entrepreneurs set up
centers at village level and act as a front-end for services provided
by Panchayats.
 Both need to operate together and provide the necessary options &
competition which would lead to greater efficiency in delivery of
services to local people. (Ref: 28-March, 2011 Meeting with Planning Commission).
 While e-Panchayat will focus on the back-end, CSCs will focus on
front-end.
 Need to put in place a Panchayat Information Infrastructure and
regularly operate, update and maintain service-related databases.
e-Panchayat and DRDAs
Panchayats and DRDAs
 Panchayats are the constitutionally mandated third tier of
government.
 The 73rd Amendment empowers Panchayats to perform both
governance and agency roles.
 DRDAs are Registered Societies at the District level that oversee
the implementation of different anti-poverty programmes of the
Ministry of Rural Development.
 In some States, DRDAs have a separate identity (distinct from Zilla
Panchayat) whereas in other States a separate cell is generally
created in Zilla Panchayat to maintain a separate identity and
separate accounts of DRDA.
Potential of PES Applications for DRDAs
 In LGD, a unique identity needs to be created for DRDAs (that are
separate) to ensure interoperability. The process of merger of DRDAs
with ZPs also needs to be defined in LGD.
 PRIASoft – to put DRDA accounts in public domain.
PRIASoft was used by DRDAs in Assam in 2011-12, 2012-13
and by Odisha in 2009-10.
 PlanPlus and ActionSoft may be used by DRDAs for planning,
implementing and monitoring (financial and physical progress) of
various schemes. The Annual plans of few line departments are already
available in PlanPlus and similarly DRDAs may also adopt PlanPlus and
ActionSoft. If required, the specific needs of DRDAs can be
incorporated in these Applications.
Potential of PES Applications for DRDAs
 Dynamic portals have been created under National Panchayat Portal




(NPP) for all Panchayat websites. So far such portals have not been
created for DRDAs. However, if the NPP framework is considered
suitable by MoRD, similar dynamic portals could also be created for
the DRDAs, where needed.
Social Audit – for social audit of works undertaken under various
schemes and & for management of meetings.
Trainings Management – to identify & meet training needs of
DRDAs.
Asset Directory – to uniquely identify each asset and to serve as a
repository of various assets created/controlled/ maintained under
any scheme of DRDAs.
GIS – spatial representation of information to facilitate planning and
decision making.
