RAJASTHAN: Swift Path To ‘E’ 

Rajasthan’s
department of information technology
(DoIT) has developed the government’s
intranet, called ‘raj-SWIFT’–statewide intranet on fast traCck. Raj-SWIFT
is a web-enabled application catering to a closed user group, being hosted on a
web server situated at DoIT and connected to the internet via a 128Kbps leased
line. In the first phase, raj-SWIFT would be used by the chief minister, his
secretariat and district. In the second phase, all district level offices of key
government departments, panchayat samitis, educational institutions and other
agencies would be able to use raj-SWIFT for intra and inter departmental
communication.

RajNidhi
information kiosk project

RajNidhi is a
web-enabled information kiosk system designed and developed by DoIT, Government
of Rajasthan, in collaboration with Rajasthan State Agency for Computer Services
(RajComp). From these information kiosks, citizens would be able to access
information related to health, family planning, immunization schedules for
children, employment, transportation, distance education, agriculture, water and
electricity connection, birth and death registration, approved housing
societies, rates of land and building taxes.

Chief minister’s information
system

An information
system has been developed for the chief minister’s office and some modules of
the package have been implemented to web-enable the vital data. These would be
required by the chief minister to use and monitor key activities of various
government departments. The project has been taken up jointly by DoIT and
RajComp.

Intranet for Jaipur city
police

An intranet,
Aarakshi, built using internet technology, tools and standards for Jaipur city
police, was developed by DoIT. It enables field level officers to carry out
online communication regarding crime data and criminals’ photographs. Besides,
a crime information system has been implemented in majority police stations of
Jaipur.

Computerization of district
collectorate

Computerization
of Ajmer Collectorate was taken up on pilot basis in 1996-97. It includes a
grievance monitoring system, monitoring of court cases, financial accounting,
arms license, small savings monitoring, claims by agents, famine and flood
relief system of various offices like SDO, DRDA, Treasury and ACM.
