A project on Indira Awas Yojana was completed at the NIC District Centre by a B.Tech. student from a college of Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Delhi. The following is the Preface and Introduction of the report (submitted on Jul.15, 2005):


This application is an attempt to make the use of the reward of using a web application in the implementation of a scheme named Indira Awas Yojana that has been started years back by Central Government. The implementation of such schemes requires a lot of effort and efficient collection of data so that proper steps could be taken at proper time. This application is a step up towards implementing the same scheme more efficiently by making use of Information Technology and Web Application, this is called a Web Based e-Governance Solution to Indira Awas Yojana.

This report gives all the aspects of the project including the resources that have been used to make this project, the user manual and the corresponding outputs to support the user to make full utilization of this application.



Indira Awas Yojana - A Web Based e-Governance Solution.

To develop an application that makes use ASP programming using VB Script at front end and SQL SERVER 2000 at the back end to monitor all the administrative aspects of Indira Awas Yojana at Block as well as District level.
The monitoring requires the maintenance of records for all the beneficiaries at various levels and generation of reports at Block or District level so that these results may be compiled to generate reports at state level.

In software engineering, a web application is an application delivered to users from a web server over a network such as the World Wide Web or an intranet. Web applications are popular due to the ubiquity of the web browser as a client. The ability to update and maintain web applications without distributing and installing software on potentially thousands of client computers is a key reason for their popularity..
Electronic Governance has emerged as one of the frontline applications to target people and network technologies and to re-invent the way the government works. It is meant to ensure better transparency and services to the public. This is the reason why we implement e-governance.
It will change how beneficiaries relate to governments as much as it changes how people relate to each other while implementing the scheme as IAY. E-Governance will allow beneficiaries to communicate with government, participate in the governments' policy-making and citizens to communicate each other. The e-Governance will truly allow recipient to participate in the government decision-making process, reflect their true needs and welfare by utilizing e-government as a tool.
E-Governance refers to the use by government agencies of information technologies (such as Wide Area Networks, the Internet, and mobile computing) that have the ability to transform relations with citizens, businesses, and other arms of government. These technologies can serve a variety of different ends: better delivery of government services to citizens, improved interactions with business and industry, citizen empowerment through access to information, or more efficient government management. The resulting benefits can be less corruption, increased transparency, greater convenience, revenue growth, and/or cost reductions.
Traditionally, the interaction between a consumer or business and a government agency took place in a government office. With emerging information and communication technologies it is possible to locate service centers closer to the clients.

Reasons to implement e-governance merged with web application:-

  • To get the productive and efficient work from the people working at different levels.
  • To reduce corruption & differences among communities.
  • To make efficient use of resources & time.
  • To make use of latest technologies that make work sophisticated, easy and accurate, as in the current project SQL SERVER 2000 and ASP has been implemented.
  • To strengthen the inner laws in the working system as the same application can be viewed by multiple users and at different levels.
  • Providing greater access to government information.
  • Promoting civic engagement by enabling the public to interact with government officials.
  • Providing development opportunities, especially benefiting rural and traditionally underserved communities.


The application developed here is an attempt to implement e-Governance, at District as well as at Block level in order to successfully implement the Centrally Sponsored Scheme, Indira Awas Yojana. As explained in the section above as an introduction to Indira Awas Yojana, the details of all the beneficiaries being affected by such scheme is relevant to the levels above the basic levels where this information is collected from various such levels and further processing is done to generate reports or to sanction money from Center .There are various other needs for which such reports are necessary and in order to fulfill such needs implementation of IT in Administrative field is a job of absolute necessity.
