Traditional wooden tables and wiremesh chairs are being replaced with modern plywood computer tables and cushion chairs. With this the gloomy DC office will wear a radiant  and plush look, thanks to donors who offered to bear the expense.

According to sources, the government did not release funds to replace the old furniture with the modern furniture. Hence the project worth lakhs of rupees is being taken up with the help of donors.

“It was a token of gratitude from the people, who were satisfied with the service employees render in the office. One person, on getting his work done had reportedly asked former DC V Ponnuraj as to what he could do in return.

The DC explained the pathetic condition of tables and chairs, which the employees were forced to use in the office. Immediately, the person agreed to provide modern furniture for a section of the office,” an official at DC’s office informed on conditions of anonymity.


The work of KSWAN is being implemented by the Centre for e-Governance of the State government, which is a part of the Central government’s e-Governance programme.
KSWAN implementation is progressing in the district. A total of 47 offices were provided with computers and other accessories under the programme.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, Networking Engineer Arunkumar said that government offices have been provided with connectivity and data can be sent or received. Officials can have access to the files of other departments through the data service. Government Business Centres (GBC) have been already started in all the taluks and at the district headquarters in Dakshina Kannada district.

GBCs have been provided with three computers, printers, scanners and other equipment, he said adding that these facilities can be used by government offices that do not have computer or connectivity, he added.

Additional Deputy Commissioner Prabhakar Sharma said that video conference service centre has already been made functional in the DC’s Office. IP phones have been given to 25 offices in the district. However, most of the features in the KSWAN are yet to be installed, he added.
