The Village Integrated Monitoring Software (VIMS), aimed at bringing transparency in development work at rural level, was rolled out today in Kurukshetra district of Haryana.

VIMS, which has been developed by District Informatics Centre, would ensure transparency in the development works and utilisation of funds, proper implementation of projects and their timely completion, said an official spokesman.

Moreover, it will also help in easy evaluation of responsibility and accountability from Junior Engineer to Block Development and Panchayat Officer (BDPO) level, he added.

This software would not only minimise the paper work but also the BDPO and bank officers would get complete picture of block and village wise schemes with just a click of button, he said.

With the help of this software, the utilisation certificate, inspection certificate and report of completion certificate could be seen anytime, he added. ==================
