Govt med college in Mysore to go paperless

As part of the upgradation process, Mysore Medical College and Research Centre (MMC&RI) is installing the Campus Resource Management (CRM) software, an automation tool, through which the entire administration process will be computerised within a month.

Fifteen modules comprising Administration, Payments, Biometric (both office staff and students), Inventory management, Accounts, Fees, Calendar of events, SMS package, Examination, Alumni Association, Hostel Management, Library, Hospital management, Statistical reports are being completely computerised, Dean Venkatesh said.

Most of the work is complete and in a month, all paper work would be withdrawn, says computer programmer Chinnaswamy.

Twenty-five members from all departments are being trained to handle the software.
A parent kiosk set up at the premises can be accessed by the students round the clock.  Two thousand smart cards have been distributed among the staff and students. The students can verify their internal marks, fee structure and the examination details with the help of the smart cards.

The government has approved the installation of the software at the college as a pilot project.
