CM launches ‘Arunachal Pradesh CM Dashboard’ website

ITANAGAR, Jun 14: Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Thursday launched the Arunachal Pradesh CM Dashboard website,
“The web-based real-time monitoring system will help us in assessing the performances of each district and department, and in ensuring effective delivery of services and faster decision-making,” Pema said during the inaugural session.
“This project was one of the few initiatives I had undertaken after taking over as chief minister, with the objective to curtail corruption and to bring in efficiency by shifting to digital mode,” said the CM.
Saying that the traditional system of paperwork “incurs huge costs and delays that cut down the efficiency of the government,” he urged the government officers to make the dashboard “the ultimate repository point to access all information and data related to government departments.”
The chief minister said initially only three departments – education, health and agriculture – have their database integrated with the CM dashboard, and urged all the other departments to follow suit.
He urged the departments to be proactive and responsive in providing timely and updated data, as and when required, in the dashboard to make the project serve its intended purpose.
The CM suggested having reliable and appropriate key performances indicators (KPI) to assess performances across the state that can have different performances level in different sectors due to varying population, topography, availability of cultivable land, etc.
Pema also suggested that the information in the dashboard should be made available to the public, without restricting it for the authorities alone.
“This will help the public to directly monitor the performances of each departments and overall of the government,” said the CM.
Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein and Chief Secretary Satya Gopal also spoke.
IT Special Secretary Prince Dhawan made a PowerPoint presentation on the working manual of the CM Dashboard.
The CM’s dashboard project commenced on 10 November, 2017, and the Arunachal Pradesh State Council for IT & E-Governance (SCITeG) and the IT & communications department were entrusted to develop and maintain the automated centralized web-based dashboard. (CMO)
