Nagaland CM launches electronic window for better monitoring

With a view to ensure proper monitoring of all government schemes in a transparent manner, Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio today launched "CM Dashboard", an electronic window.

The CM Dashboard (www.nl.cmdashboard.nic.in) is an electronic window which gives a comprehensive view of various e-Governance projects and schemes running in the state.

It provides information about some important measurable parameters or progress called KPIS (Key Performance Indicator).

The system will enable the Chief Minister to assess the performance of the projects on the click of a button and take immediate actionable decisions with regard to the projects or schemes.

The Chief Minister also launched Electronic National Pension System (e-NPS) developed in integration with Personal Information Management System.

It 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 File Preparation Utility to upload in National Securities Depository Limited portal.

The portal for e-NPS is www.pimsnagaland.in/nps.

Inaugurating the two major schemes at the Secretariat Conference Hall, Rio said that Nagaland being a state dependent on flagship programmes of the Central government, this initiative will help in informing the people about the details of the various projects being implemented in the state.

Rio mentioned that as of now, there are 22 schemes of 11 state government departments, and that the other departments will also follow suit.

On e-NPS, Rio said that this web system will help the government in effectively maintaining the NPS records and contribute to the welfare of the citizens.

As of now, e-NPS is being launched only in Kohima district, and will be covered very soon in the rest of the districts, he added.

Commissioner and Secretary to the CM, Abhishek Singh said that 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 of Nagaland.

OSD Finance Department, V. Kezo, in his power-point presentation on e-NPS, mentioned that the system will give accurate and authentic data values for which Department of Treasuries & Accounts will only have to download and upload the FPU monthly when the District DDOs and District Treasury Offices submits the respective contribution, challan numbers and challan codes into the system.

He also said that e-NPS is a three-tier system (a) DDO level access (b) Sub-Treasury Level (c) e-NPS Super Admin Level i.e. Directorate of Treasuries & Accounts, and this system is mainly developed to minimise paper transactions.
