E-PRI (Panchayati Raj)
The Government has formulated a project namely e-Panchayat Mission Mode Project (MMP) for e-enablement of all the Panchayats which will make their functioning more efficient and transparent. The Project received in principle approval from the Planning Commission in August 2007.
E-Governance in Panchayats is sought to be achieved through the e-Panchayat MMP under the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP). Under the e-Panchayat MMP, 11 Core Common Software applications are planned.
In Punjab, 7 all live Core applications i.e. PriaSoft, Planplus, Local Government Directory, National Panchayat Portal, Area Profiler & Training have already been adopted out of 11 and are live in 182 blocks.
