The Rural Development Department (RDD), Government of Maharashtra (GoM) is one of the pioneers of e-governance in India. With information technology changing the way we live and do business, RDD believed that Information and Communication Technology (ICT) could be effectively leveraged to deliver a variety of information and services to the citizens in a time-bound and efficient manner. The RDD wanted to pursue e-governance in several districts as per the vision and objective of the e-Governance Policy of Maharashtra 2011 and achieve the following
Objective: The government of Maharashtra wanted to make all the government services accessible to the common man through computerized services in seven districts, namely Nanded, Latur, Yavatmal, Satara, Sangli, Jalgaon & Jalna.
Solution: Innowave IT Infrastructures developed a complete rural ERP solution and was also involved in the implementation, rollout and training in nearly 30,000 Gram Panchayats. The following were the highlights of the ePanchayat Solution:
The Kampala Capital City Authority (KCAA) is the governing body of the capital city Kampala in Uganda and is the city administrator. The authority was looking for an agency to help improve its capacity to implement projects on time and within budget, raise revenue by at least 15%, improve government to citizen services and update city data based on ground reality. It also wanted to strengthen the use of information and communication technology.
The city administration did not know the present available data and hence revenue derivation became a problem. Besides, surveys of properties took a long time and the city urban officers didn’t have any full-proof mechanism to check surveyed data until field validation was done. Often, manual errors would creep into such surveys.
Visual Data Validation Solution based on 360 Degree Street view and LiDAR data
KCCA faced a lot of challenges when it used the traditional system of manual surveys. They include:
The scope of work designed and developed for the project are:
Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) in Maharashtra are at the forefront of delivering services to citizens and the Urban Development Department of the Government of Maharashtra was seeking to bolster its service delivery infrastructure. It wanted to deliver end-to-end services to both citizens and businesses in a very user-friendly way, and also allow it to maintain a high level of transparency and accountability on the government’s side. The ULBs consisted of 26 Municipal Corporations and 340 Municipal Councils/Nagar Panchayats.
Implementation of an Integrated Web-based solution across ULBs in Maharashtra, excluding the Municipal Corporations of Thane, Mumbai, Nagpur, Nashik, Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad. The project aims to improve standards of citizen services by providing better information and speedy delivery, ensuring satisfied customer interaction by one-click interaction. It also aims to increase the efficiency and competency of the ULBs by increasing staff productivity, reduce overheads with fewer offices and paperless management, streamline all procedures and facilitate connectivity between various offices.
Directorate of Information Technology, Maharashtra, was formed with a single goal—to develop ICT and e-governance in the state. DIT was looking for an agency to help it formulate a policy framework for Maharashtra’s e-governance program, put in place a pan-state organizational structure that would connect departments across the state, district and talk levels and provide technical manpower for the IT facilitation cells. The total resource requirements were 354 (50 at State level, 144 at District level and 160 at Taluk level). With the rapid adoption of e-governance across all departments in the state, there was also a need for augmenting the existing SDC infrastructure.
Selection of Agency for Providing Technical Manpower for Formation of Pan-State IT Facilitation Cells. The objectives of the agency would be:
The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM), which is responsible for the civic and infrastructure needs of Mumbai, such as maintenance of roads, streets, flyovers, municipal schools, water supply and purification, hospitals, street lighting, lighthouses, maintenance of parks and open local spaces, sewage treatment and disposal, garbage disposal, street cleanliness, cemeteries and crematoriums, registering of births and deaths in the city, wanted to enhance property tax collections in a transparent way.
It was looking to develop a proper support system and property tax assessments department that would capture information related to properties as they existed on the ground using state-of-the-art mapping and surveying technologies. The Integrated Property Validation Solution (IPVS) was also intended to provide authentic ground data gathered through satellite imagery, LiDAR data and physical field survey to validate MIS tax records at MCGM and/or identify discrepancies for property tax assessment and reconciliation processes.
Implementation of Integrated Property Validation Solution (IPVS) Using 360 Degree Immersive Panoramic Data and Terrestrial LiDAR Data
MCGM wanted the project to achieve the following objectives:
Innowave IT Infrastructures developed an Integrated Property Validation Solution, which compared on-ground data with MIS tax records at MCGM, and enabled accurate reconciliation and accurate property tax assessment. The solution also provided data for interpreting information relevant to other related MCGM functions such as hoardings, hawkers, street furniture, municipal assets, tree census etc. The Integrated Property Validation Solution was an online centralized solution that enabled various stakeholders to view and share information gathered from different sources to improve decision making. The baseline data including updated base map, 360 degree immersive panoramic imagery, Terrestrial LiDAR point cloud data, and field survey data also helped many departments of MCGM for decision making. The scope of the work designed and developed during the project are:
