Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio on Monday launched the CM Dashboard and e-NPS (Electronic National Pension System) at the secretariat conference hall in Kohima to ensure proper monitoring of all government schemes with transparency and accountability in one single frame.
The CM Dashboard (https://nl.cmdashboard.nic.in) is an electronic window which gives a comprehensive view of various e-governance projects/schemes running in the state in a single window in terms of some important measurable parameters/progress called KPIS (Key Performance Indicator). This system will enable the chief minister to assess the performance of the projects at the click of a button and take immediate actionable decisions with regard to the projects/schemes.
The e-NPS, developed in integration with PIMS (Personal Information Management System), is to meet the urgent requirements of the state government to manage the contribution of the department employees who are subscribing towards the NPS and subsequently downloading the FPU (File Preparation Utility) to upload in NSDL (National Securities Depository Limited) portal.
Launching the programmes, Rio said Nagaland being a state which is dependent on flagship programmes of the central government, this initiative will help in informing the people about the details of the various projects/schemes being implemented in the state.
He mentioned that as of now, 22 schemes are being run in 11 state government departments. He urged all to work and contribute towards this initiative in a constructive manner rather than being critical of the government.
On e-NPS, the chief minister said this web system will help the government in effectively maintaining the NPS records and contribute to the welfare of the citizens. The e-NPS was launched only in Kohima district on Monday while the rest of the states will be covered very soon, he added.
Commissioner and secretary to the CM, Abhishek Singh, said the CM Dashboard has been customised as per the requirements by including not only the flagship programmes of the government of India but also including the state schemes, projects and programmes that are relevant to the state. He added that the objective of launching this CM Dashboard is to ensure better implementation of the schemes so that the benefits can be easily availed by the people.
NIC Director General Neeta Verma briefed on the services of the CM Dashboard through live video conferencing. She pointed out that the CM Dashboard provides a finished record of all the important programmes and schemes of the government and added the advantage of the service is that it enables one to use the programme with their own indicators, benchmark and customization.
She also appraised that the most important aspect of the service is that all the important data coming into the Dashboard is directly picked from the IT system and there is no human error in it. She further urged the Nagaland Government to consider in approving the district-wise dashboard down the line for a single window where they can get access to all the programmes and performance at the district level too.
