National e-Governance Plan to Make Available all Government Services at the Doorstep

14th June, 2006 – Press Information Bureau








New Delhi,  Jyaistha   24, 1928  June   14, 2006


     RM/NCJ/AMA – 140606 National e-Governance Plan

National e-Governance Plan “NeGP” plan is to take all Government Services to the Doorstep of Citizens of INDIA.

Jammu and Kashmir has allready well established 134 COMMON SERVICE CENTERS “CSC”.  These were established by DIT-MIT-NIC in Jammu and Kashmir covering entire State.

The Jammu and Kashimr State has problem in taking over these 134 CIC’s of Jammu and Kashmir immediately after the term ends. 

NeGP should make plans to include these 134 CIC’s of Jammu and Kashmir and fund these for FIVE more years so that  Jammu and Kashmir STATE can take over the 134 CIC’s of Jammu and Kashmir.

We request, National e-Governance Plan “NeGP” to fund these established  134 CIC’s of JAMMU and KASHMIR  for FIVE more years and deliver eGovernance in JAMMU and KASHMIR.

NeGP by including these 134 CIC’s of JAMMU and KASHMIR as part of 100000 CSC’s and  funding these CIC’s of JAMMU and KASHMIR, can take all Government Services to the Doorstep of Citizens of JAMMU and KASHMIR

Importance of  existing 134 CIC’s of Jammu and Kashmir.

134 CIC’s of JAMMU and KASHMIR can be used to IMPLEMENT most of the eGovernance activities of JAMMU and KASHMIR,

134 CIC’s of  JAMMU and KASHMIR can be used to Effective Implementation of RTI Act 2005

134 CIC’s of JAMMU and KASHMIR can be used to all other required programs for CITIZENS of JAMMU and KASHMIR. 

134 CIC’s of JAMMU and KASHMIR can be used to Localization of Languages in JAMMU and KASHMIR.

134 CIC’s of JAMMU and KASHMIR have PORTALS of it’s own, which can be used for different services.

Information about 134 CIC’s of Jammu and Kashmir.

In view of the successful implementation of the CIC Project in the North Eastern States it was decided to extend the same to other parts of the country. The first state to be taken up was the state of Jammu and Kashmir. This was due to the fact that the barriers for access to ICT, such as difficult geographical terrain and lack of infrastructure which were found in the North Eastern states were also an issue for Jammu and Kashmir. It was felt that the basic needs of citizens such as information, education, entertainment and health services can be addressed through the establishment of Community Information Centres in the state. These centres would serve as a platform for e-governance, e-learning and other IT enabled services in the state. In the first phase it decided to cover 60 of the total 135 blocks in the state and at present the distribution of centres set up district wise in the state is as follows:

 S No.

These 60 CICs are operational and have started providing services to the citizens. The next phase covering the remaining 75 sites will be implemented in 2005.  

Infrastructure and Management

Each Centre is well- equipped with infrastructure including one server machine, five client systems, one each of a Laser Printer, Dot Matrix Printer, modem, LAN hub, TV, Webcam and two UPS (1KVA, 2 KVA). Each Centre is connected to the network through a remote VSAT.

Each CIC has two CIC Operators (CICOs) for managing the centers and providing services to the public. CIC operators have been trained to manage the centres, provide services and impart training on basic computer operations and software packages to visitors.

    Dear all CICans of NE and especially J&K ,

    What would happen to our future after five years?This is a question of great concern for all of us and especially for those who are near about the age of 37 years,after that there will be no future for them and for all of us.This is a special request to all CICans to come at a plateform and decide about their future.The govt is playing a tit for tat game with all of us for five years,On one hand they made us work to derive maximum benefit for the welfare of society and on the other hand they are not in a postion to think about our future security.Inspite of having well qualified MCA’s and BE’s and BCA’s,why do they hesitate in securing the CIC future?.They have the quality staff which is needed as per the govt. norms,and delivering the duty as per govt. norms,but when it comes tor payment/salary,they say the funds are yet to be released or some other forgiving answer,or the govt is going to think about your future.Since a long time we remained mum and said nothing for our future now please please come and get associated(all cicans of J&K) and tell the govt. what would happen to us after 5 years?OR how can we say that we have been employed by GOI when we have no guarantee about our future which is in the hands of lawmakers that is GOVT of J&K and GOI OR NIC.

    With best wishes,

    Tanveer-ul Majid Wani(MCA)

    Subject: Release of salary

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Its has been the matter of great anxiety that each CICO in J&K has to wait for the atleast 5 to 6 months for his minute salary.Now its just became a tradition.

    Its very difficult for the independent CICO to even fulfill his daily needs.

    We are without salary from Feb. 2006.

    Its my humble request to higher authorities to kindly break this tradition and release our salary so that a CICO can atleast pay Bus fare to reach his office for smooth working of CIC..
