Introduction 

     In line with the vision of Digital India, Ministry of Electronics and Information technology (GoI) has envisaged the Pilot of Digital Village with a view to showcase the transformation that Digital India Programme can bring about, to different stakeholders like Departments of Union Government, State Governments, Private Telecom Players, other corporate service providers and citizens especially living in the rural areas. 

    Digital Village pilot intends to provide a platform for availability of services such as tele-medicine, tele-education, LED lighting and WiFi hotspot, skill development to the people at the Gram Panchayat level in select blocks across various states and UTs. This project moves away from the traditional approach of e-Governance projects (that focused on creating infrastructure) and adopts a service based approach for pilot of the Digital Village and will be launched across 30 States and UTs. 

The key sub components under Digital Village Pilot Project are: 

  • Tele Medicine Services - which is realization of ekranti pillar of Digital India. 

  • Tele Education Services - which is realization of ekranti pillar of Digital India. 

  • LED Lighting and WiFi Hotspot Services - which is a part of Digital Connectivity of Digital India. 

  • Skill Development Services - which is a part of Digital empowerment of Digital India. 

Digital Village is envisaged to be rolled out Pan India in two stages namely: 

  • PILOT – The first stage would be pilot implementation across block(s) in all states and UTs in India for Digital Village. The total duration of the pilot shall be3 years out of which, the operations and maintenance/service delivery phase will span over 2.5 years post implementation. 

  • PAN INDIA ROLLOUT – Post incorporating the learning’s from the pilot, implementation strategy for Pan India rollout shall be prepared. 

OBJECTIVES 

Given this context, the pilot project aims at the following: 

  • Provide basic development services to rural areas using Digital technology and demonstrate the potential of digital technologies to improve quality of life in rural areas. 

  • To provide WiFi access at common place in the village 

  • To facilitate access to regional medical centers for local population for expert opinion, thus ensuring availability of basic medical facilities at village level. 

  • To provide access to interactive teaching in local schools having shortage of teachers. 

  • To provide LED lighting at a common area in the village. 

  • To provide resource centers to be used for providing skill development training, holding information sharing sessions and organizing interactive sessions with experts, Government officers etc. 

  • Create a market/demand for digital services in rural areas thereby creating market pull for Telecom services 3G/4G to unreached areas. 

  • Design a framework for the states and UTs to implement the Digital Village. 

  • Identify a model governance structure and implementation mechanism. 

  • Be in a position, so that the learnings from the pilot can be incorporated in the Digital Village initiative while taking it Pan India 

 
BENEFITS 

The services under Digital Village will reach to the rural areas as benefits. They are as follows: 

Tele Medicine 

Majority of rural population does not have access to basic medical facilities at village level. Even those villages having Primary Health Centers (PHCs) are not able to provide proper services due to lack of doctors or paramedical staffs. Although, with proper and early diagnostics many of the diseases could be cured, however due to lack of proper basic medical facility the disease goes unnoticed till thr problem aggravates. This result in suffering for the patient, heavy financial burden for the family and might also increases the mortality rate. In view of the above, Tele Medicine services is envisaged under Digital Village. Under this service, a group of Primary Health Centers (PHCs) shall be parented to a lead hospital, which shall be a hospital of repute at block, district or state/ UT level. The local medical/ paramedical staff at PHC shall interact with the doctors at lead hospital using Tele Medicine solutions. The staff at PHC shall help the lead hospital doctor during the diagnosis and consultation process. Various consultation sessions pertaining to different fields of medicine shall be rendered under the Tele Medicine service. 

Tele Education 

Rural India has deficiency of good teachers/ availability of teachers. This deficiency becomes critical in some subjects like science, mathematics, English etc. In addition to the above, due to the limited exposure of the teachers to the various higher education and career opportunities available in conventional and non conventional fields, they are not able to guide the students towards higher education and career goals. In view of this, Digital Villages are envisaged to have Tele Education Services. Under this service, a group of rural schools shall be parented to a lead school. The lead school shall be a government school reputed for quality education delivery at block, district or state/UT level. However, the lead school can also be a private school but this will require the approval from the respective state/UT government. 

LED Lighting 

There will be a LED tower setup installed at common location in a Gram Panchayat. It would be used to provide free lighting at the common location for a period of 4-5 hours in a day (during the evening time). It will also host a display borad that would be used for disseminating important information which may be related to various initiatives under Government schemes, informative messages cadering to different age- groups of people etc. 

WiFi Hotspot 

As part of the initiative of digitally empowering the citizens, free access to internet would be provided to the residents for a period of 30 minutes per user per day post authentication etc. However access to government sites like e-District etc would be provided for a longer period (proposed at 4-5 hours, over and above the free internet access time). 

Skill Development 

The VC and other infrastructure facilities available in resource centers shall be used for providing skill development training, holding information sharing sessions and organizing interactive sessions with experts, government officers etc. Skill development training in a structured manner can be provided by holding regular sessions in person or over the VC facility. In addition, interactive sessions with experts can be arranged for farmers, cattle rearing etc. It will help in dissemination of information to other villages about any disease related to crops, cattle etc, spreading in the region. This will also facilitate proactive government measures to prevent/contain an outbreak. In addition to the government, social support groups etc can use the facilities at RCs to disseminate information on various topics including social awareness. The above mentioned services are indicative in nature and hence many more innovative uses/services can be explored while leveraging on the IT enables Resource Centers 

  1. e-Governance Standards Manual                                                                              

    Tamil Nadu is the leader in Good Governance seen over the last 7 decades of continuous development in the State. In keeping with this trend, this draft standards attempt to define the use of electronic systems in office use and encourage progress rather than just limiting a prescriptive set of standards. 

    Traditionally a lot of Administrative Rules, guidelines and practices exist here dating back to the old times of the English in addition to those of the earlier rulers in many parts of the State. One of the first set of rules have been in the Government Office Manual which are progressively improvised to aid the administrative process with increasing supervisory accesses. 

    However best these manual systems are, the time has come to add a new dimension of ‘Time’ in dynamic mode to speedily process, deliver and document decisions and services to the Citizens. The Government has to work 24 x 365 … faster than the private citizens expect. Therefore, the e-Government has to view, verify, value the expectations of the citizens and deliver the services with velocity in ever increasing volumes. 

    All the Government Departments are to have a single set of Core Citizen Data comprising of the basic data objects which are covered in this document. The Government does not want to curb development of frontier technologies or its use by specifying a set of limited standards although in the current thinking the administration of the data bases and their use would be easier with fixing the technology. 

  1. e- Repository Management System                                                                          

    The Government departments implement application software through government agencies and outsourced agencies. In case of software implemented through outsourced mode, over a period of time, there will be a lack of support/enhancement and hence source code and documentations may not be traceable. In such conditions, continuity of services offered by the government departments would be affected. 

    In order to overcome the above issues, the CEO, TNeGA has sent a proposal to provide a centralized software repository tool for the Government departments so that the software, source code and documentation of the software of government departments would be made available at a single location through the centralized software repository tool, as and when the departments require the support and documentation. The CEO, TNeGA has proposed to take up the above work under the part-II schemes for 2012-13. 

    Above proposal of CEO, TNeGA for centralized software repository tool was approved by Government vide G.O.2(D).No.4 Information Technology (B4) Department, dated 11.06.2012 for an amount of Rs.17 lakhs under part II scheme for 2012-2013. We have received the above amount on 10.08.2012. 

    The Design, development and implementation of Repository Management System software was assigned to ELCOT by TNeGA. ELCOT selected M/s.Onward e-Services and released work order. The software development is completed. 

    The Application has ready to launch ,and it has been access through, e-repository.tn.gov.in/RMS/index.htm 

  2. IT Security Audit                                                                                                         

    In the Present Scenario of increase in Cyber attacks throughout the world, the Government of Tamil Nadu has initiated the security audit of all the Government Departments Websites and Information Technology Applications to protect from Defacement and Hacking. Information Technology being an integral part of government, any detrimental effects to the system could come to a fast and grinding halt, unable to function on almost any government level, thereby makes the need for IT Security Audit being significant. 

    The IT Security Auditing of websites and IT applications for first time is conducted by the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) empanelled auditors in accordance with the applicable guidelines and standards as specified by CERT-In/STQC (Standardization, Testing and Quality Certification). TNeGA has empanelled 7 IT Security organizations as follows.
