Government Community Cloud Contributes to the “Digital India Mission”
Digital India Mission has accelerated the adoption of Government Community Cloud across the central and state government organizations. Here’s how GCC contributes to Digital India Initiatives
- Smart City Project
The smart city vision is to enrich the quality of life with meaningful insights from the data collected by interconnected sensors, devices, and people. The smart city project addresses the current urban issues like security, waste management, infrastructure, and traffic delivering improved facilities. The government community cloud offers a smart and connected digital platform for the smart city infrastructure.
Delivering an exuberant solution satisfying smart city needs, the GCC delivers all government guidelines to be accessible with a single click. Analyzing the Big data generated by the sensors and mobile devices, GCC offers real-time data to the municipality enhancing the way people live. The potential of GCC combined with IoT to shape Indian cities into smart cities is limitless. Delivering a digital platform to IoT devices, GCC has already accelerated the growth of smart cities with automated parking, home automation, retail outlet automation, and traffic management in some cities.
- E-Gram Panchayat
The majority of the Indian population belongs to villages where Panchayats represent the face of governance. To shed the traditional image of Panchayat and enhance the quality of governance, the Indian government has initiated e-governance to simply the government operations. Supporting government portals and applications, the GCC delivers all government policies at a single place. It ensures seamless collaboration between the government officials and the villagers. Eliminating the delay due to files traveling to different locations, GCC ensures quick governing services.
- Indian Railways
The Indian railway network which is governed by the Railway ministry is the largest rail network in Asia. Based on a survey, the railway ministry confirms only 1 million people out of 17 million passengers traveling everyday carry confirm rail tickets. To address these challenges, the railway ministry opted for Government Community Cloud. In the present scenario, the railway ministry maintains all the railway data on the cloud.
The e-tickets with unique QR code for every passenger and verifying tickets with QR scanners, Wi-Fi enabled GPS on each train is all managed by the cloud storage. The system helps to maintain the count of passengers where the status of empty seats gets automatically updated on cloud allotting the vacant seats to passengers based on the first come first serve model.
- Document Management System
To reduce the challenges involved in carrying the hardcopy of documents, the government of India initiated a cloud-based document management system. The GCC based document management system is much more than a drive where documents are stored in digital format and can be accessed depending on convenience. The system is known as DigiLocker.
The documents are digitally verified and signed by the Indian government with a DigiLocker verification seal.
