Dimapur, July 17 (EMN): An online programme monitoring tool named the ‘district magistrate dashboard’ for Nagaland was launched through video conferencing, on July 17 by Chief Secretary Temjen Toy, at his office in Kohima.
The government publicity agency, the department of Information and Public Relations (IPR), issued updates on Wednesday informing about the programme.

The dashboard is an online tool which will help deputy commissioners and district administrations in monitoring and analysing implementation of high-priority government schemes, programmes and projects in the district, the IPR stated.

This dashboard reflects the performance and achievements on a day-to-day basis. It has also been made available to the citizens to view and track performance of certain schemes like the Swachh Bharat Mission Gramin, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee scheme, and soil health cards etc.

The dashboard currently has 14 sectors, 17 departments and 53 projects onboard. Out of which, a few projects are centrally fed through online web services while the rest are through offline modes.

The Darpan, or ‘dashboard for analytical review of projects across nation,’ transform complex government data into compelling visuals. It gives the district administration a tool that is needed to deliver real-time, dynamic project monitoring without coding or programming through web services.

In his remarks at the event, Chief Secretary Toy said that the state’s dashboard is the second in the country to cover all the districts.

‘The world is changing and this launching of online DM dashboard tool will help the DC in monitoring and analysing the performance of the districts,’ he said.

Toy mentioned that the deputy commissioners being the chairmen of many communities and organisations in the district should keep tags and monitor the activities of various departments. Unless the departments in the district perform, the performance of the state cannot progress, he said.

The chief secretary also appealed to the deputy commissioners to make full use of the dashboard, which he said will help them save lot of time besides giving them a clear picture of what is happening in the district.

The National Informatics Centre’s (NIC) Nagaland coordinator Dr. Kishore Kumar also addressed the event. In his opening remarks, he said that the NIC was able to extend connectivity to all the districts and government officials in

Nagaland with the support of state’s government, to implement the application.
This application will help the deputy commissioners to monitor ongoing projects and implementation, he said.

Kumar assured that the NIC team will give full support to providing technical support in implementing e-governance applications in the state to strengthen the Digital India programme, the IPR added.

Altogether, representatives from nine districts participated in the video conferencing.
The dashboard is designed, developed and hosted by the National Informatics Centre of the ministry of Electronics & Information Technology.
