Punjab Government is planning to replicate its e-District project in the entire state within eight to ten months. The project was earlier successfully tested in two districts of the state.

The project aims to target high volume delivered at the district level and to undertake back-end computerization to enable the delivery of citizen services through common service centres in a systematic way. It further aims to integrate multiple applications, faster processing of public cases/appeals/grievances, dissemination of information as per public requirement and redesign the processes for the core services to be delivered through the Common Service Centers.

 

Under the e-district roll out, system integrators will be responsible for providing a comprehensive solution towards supply, installation, development, integration, commissioning, and maintenance of application and computing infrastructure pertaining to e-district in the state. The government is going to provide 47 citizen centric services like issuance of caste certificate, birth certificate, residence certificate etc through these e-districts.

 

Wipro has been entrusted as a consultant for the project. The total project cost for the project is around Rs 55 crore which would be funded through central government and in case of any variation, the state government will fund rest of the project cost.
