JANUARY 3, JAMMU: Today, Chief Secretary Atal Dulloo reviewed the proposal in its entirety to make significant changes to the IT sector in this region in collaboration with the Bhaskaracharya National Institute for Space Applications and Geo-Informatics (BISAG), a society under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (Meity), with the goal of integrating artificial intelligence (AI)-based solutions into local governance.

Principal Secretaries of PWD, Education, Finance, Science & Technology, RDD, Social Welfare, GAD, Grievances, Cooperatives, DG, Planning, Director, Industries, SIO, NIC, and other relevant officers were present at the meeting in addition to the DG, BISAG-N.


At the beginning of the discussion, the Chief Secretary argued that the moment had come to address public challenges with tailored artificial intelligence solutions. He interjected, saying that because IT has become ingrained in every part of our lives, we must adapt our procedures to make them more technologically friendly. In order to get the best outcomes, he requested that a deadline be set for completing certain duties and that each be addressed individually.

He urged every department to enhance the PM Gati Shakti site with as many layers as feasible, provided that the space permits it. He instructed each of them to order the importance of their issue statements in order to get BISAG to provide the relevant IT solutions. He also instructed them to reconsider their specifications in light of their public importance and look for AI-based, specially designed solutions for each of them.

In addition, Dulloo requested that the current G2C web services be reexamined with an eye toward improving their usability and interactivity. He requested that they create apps that are helpful in keeping an eye on the caliber of solutions made available to the general public. He also recommended improving the grievance resolution mechanism’s timeliness, participatory nature, and emphasis on results.

During her presentation, Commissioner Secretary for IT Prerna Puri provided an overview of the kinds of initiatives they are recommending to BISAG. She explained that in addition to profiling villages and panchayats to gain a better understanding of the infrastructure and human resource availability there and the kinds of interventions needed in each, the department has asked for cooperation in the following focus areas: the implementation of the Holistic Agriculture Development Program (HADP), work execution, public grievances, an end-to-end solution for tracking public outreach programs like Back to Village, etc.

The BISAG team presented a number of models, including ones created for J&K’s holistic growth. They presented the types of interventions they are thinking about doing to provide J&K users with better solutions. They also discussed the specifics of the potential use of AI in several governance domains, based on the data that UT has produced so far.

The group showcased their proposed key note interventions, which center on creating apps such as Work Execution Directories and Village Amenities. Additionally, they displayed methods for creating public outreach initiatives, government program integration and convergence, and thorough grievance redressal mechanisms.

It was said that the institution would continue to create solutions based on the daily needs of each department and deliver on them on a regular basis. Additionally, it provided free IEC video development in all local languages for each of them.

The decision was made to work together and assign nodal officers from each department to provide data and other supporting materials in order to facilitate the timely and efficient delivery of potential solutions as desired by the local government.
