KSWAN to be launched on Monday

As many as 19 departments have brought their applications online using the network and more departments are likely to join in. The network will provide connectivity to all e-governance applications of the state and facilitate electronic delivery to government-to-citizen and government-to-business services.

The video conferencing facility was widely used by the Chief Minister’s office to interact with Deputy Commissioners, while monitoring the flood-hit areas.

Each district and taluk headquarters has been set up with Government Business Centre which are equipped with computers, printers and scanners. These facilities can be used by Government offices that do not have a computer or connectivity facilities for transacting work.

Some of the major departments connected are Revenue, Transport, Treasury, Stamps and Registration, Public Works, Food and Civil Supplies, Health and Family Welfare, High Court, District Courts and lower courts, 29 prisons and Public Instruction. United Telecom Limited will be the operator to establish and maintain the network for the next five years, while BSNL is the bandwidth provider. The project has been set up at a cost of Rs 180 crore.
