Award of Recognition

Agriculture team  of NIC , Odisha  and Department of Agriculture and farmers’ Empowerment, Govt of Odisha jointly  received the CSI SIG eGovernance Award of Recognition from Shri Tusharkanti Behera, Hon’ble Minister, Electronics & IT, Odisha for the Project ‘Digital Transformation solution for distribution and monitoring system  of Agricultural  Implements and increasing Irrigation Potential through electric and solar’ on  17th January 2020 as part of the 53rd  CSI Annual Convention at KiiT University, Bhubaneswar, Odisha

This online system facilitates the error free distribution of farm machinery, execution of PLIP (Private Lift Irrigation points) through electric power, installation of solar system for pump set through solar power and finally transfer of entitlements and benefits directly to the beneficiary’s Bank account as well as to the OREDA account.

The program cuts across all beneficiaries which include large farmers, small farmers, marginal farmers and share croppers.  This streamlines the process and trims the number of intermediaries and delays in the system. All the central and state sponsored schemes can be monitored and implemented effectively by the department at a much higher level. It enables seamless service delivery of  G2C &  G2G. 

This initiative has been coordinated by Ms. Sarita Sahoo, STD  with the support of Agriculture team of NIC, Odisha and under guidance of Ms. Pratibha Singh, DDG & SIO, Odisha.
