Responsive, accountable, transparent governance system established across J&K: Govt
SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Government has made Jan Bhagidhari the main mantra towards making the dispensation more responsive, accountable, and transparent besides ensuring rapid growth and development across the Union Territory.
The J&K administration is earnestly working for the last two years to make the entire governance structure transparent and accessible to the public in a hassle-free manner.
To ensure social audit of development projects by the people, the Finance Department recently directed all the Drawing and Disbursing Officers (DDOs) to immediately update details of works in rural and urban areas on its Janbhagidari (empowerment) e-portal.
It also asked all Deputy Commissioners and Accounts Officers to update these details in respect of works taken under District Capex including that of DDC, BDC, and PRI grants.
Empowerment/Janbhagidari drive is a web-based initiative to bring transparency in the execution of works by enabling citizens to overview works or projects being implemented in their areas and become a partner in the process of development has been launched by the J&K government.
It is a one-stop interactive and user-friendly digital platform. It provides detailed insights to people into nature, status as well as a number of developmental works that are being executed in their areas. Works can be searched with respect to their location in each block or municipality, village, and district.
The idea is to make the entire project planning and implementation process open to the general public who will be the ultimate beneficiaries of the projects.
The information available on this one-stop platform can be accessed through www.janbhagidari.jk.gov.in and can be utilized by the people for social audit and timely feedback or suggestions or registering their complaints for improving expenditure outcomes in the spirit of togetherness.
Similarly, J&K Government is empowering the citizens of J&K, particularly youngsters to avail of government services at the click of a button on an e-portal which can be accessed by logging into eunnat.jk.gov.in.
Marking a remarkable achievement in the digital journey of Jammu and Kashmir, e-Unnat provides a window for the government to get feedback from citizens on any subject related to service delivery and its quality for further improvement.
The platform is integrated with the Rapid Assessment System (RAS) which gives users an opportunity to give their feedback about their experience of using the service.
Further, the platform has been fully integrated with the national portal ‘Meri Pehchan’ for more fruitful access and availability. It has also been synchronised with Digi Locker, UMANG app, and SMS/e-Payment gateway for the overall comfort and ease of the users. It will usher in freedom from running to government offices and will provide strength to the dream of making JK fully digital.
