Plan to computerise village ‘chavadis'

Correspondent


‘It will help bring transparency in administration'


Karwar: The office of the Assistant Commissioner of Karwar has drawn up a plan to computerise village “chavadis” in Karwar taluk. The project is aimed at galvanising the village-level administration.

M.R. Ravi, Assistant Commissioner, who is the brain behind the project, explained that this would help bring transparency in the village-level administration and enhance the working capacity of the lower-level staff of the Revenue Department. It would also help enhance democratic values in the village-level administration, he added.

He said that the objective of the project was to “enhance the working capacity of the revenue staff and thereby provide sensible and responsible governance, and to take the administration on the common man's doorstep”. Mr. Ravi said that most of the village chavadis in Karwar taluk lacked infrastructure. This had had an effect on the efficiency of the administration at the village level.

He said that it was decided to provide infrastructure and basic facilities at gram chavadis. And, computerisation of gram chavadis in the taluk was the first step in this direction, he added. He said that with computerisation, the department could provide effective administration at the village level.

Cost

Each village chavadi will be computerised at a cost of Rs. 50,000. Twenty-six gram chavadis in the taluk would be computerised at a cost of Rs. 13 lakh, which would be borne by financial institutions, he added.
