Capital Complex DA bags 2 national awards for GPS-based Sanitation Management & e-Office

Itanagar, Jun 23: The Capital Complex District Administration added two more feathers to its wings by bagging two SKOCH Order-of-Merit awards at the 52nd SKOCH Summit in two categories viz. GPS-based Sanitation Management at Itanagar and e-Office at the DC’s office here.

The awards were received by Circle Officer Bittu Kri and District Informatics Officer Tarani Kumar on behalf of the DA, in a glittering function held at Constitution Club, New Delhi on Saturday.

Highlighting about the GPS based Sanitation Management, Bittu Kri informed that the solid waste is one of the major problems in Indian cities. For the capital city too, it was a major problem as had been proved in the Swachch Survekshan of 2016 where the city was placed as the third dirtiest city.

However, with efforts of District Administration and Itanagar Municipal Council the capital city soon improved its ranking by giant strides to reach the half way mark by ranking 216 out of 434 cities. With the aim of becoming one of the cleanest cities of the country the efforts and engagement have been expanding continuously under the adept stewardship of Prince Dhawan, DC Capital Complex.

The GPS based system is helping the civic body to track the vehicle and detect irregularities in solid waste collection. All the vehicles of IMC have been fitted with GPS devices enabling real-time tracking, cost saving, efficient route management and bringing accountability in sanitation management. If the vehicle gives any residential colony or spot a miss, officers concerned at DA and IMC will get to know that without stepping out of office through system-generated sms alerts.

Furthermore, the IMC is employing machine learning technique on day to day data generated on waste collections from every ward in order to predict monthly or rather annual quantity of waste collection. This will help IMC in resource planning and effective management on processing waste management plants.

Regarding the successful implementation of e-Office, DIO Tarani Kumar informed that the office of DC, Capital Complex is the only DC’s office in the entire North East India to have adopted e-Office, making it a paperless office.

This is the second award for e-Office implementation in the district office after the National e-Governance Award received earlier this year.

Using an off the shelf idea, the DC office, Itanagar has exceptionally demonstrated the capacity to transform an idea to successful practice. The transformation has brought faster delivery of service, accountability and transparency in the workings of the office.

It has also added value to the human resource of the office with continuous training making them technology savvy. The office has procured computers for all the officers and ministerial staff and has been conducting multiple trainings on the use of computer and e-Office. Further, to tackle connectivity issues the office has procured multiple connections such as leased line and private net. The office has enabled access of e-office over virtual private net (VPN) which enables use of e-office from any internet service provider and from anywhere.

Both Kri and Kumar lauded the DC Prince Dhawan for his effort to streamline the system of solid waste management through GPS tracking and adopting of e-Office to ensure transparency and accountability in the system of file movement and hoped that under his guidance, the Capital Complex would see major developments especially in the IT sector in days to come.
