Maharashtra Govt floats JV with TCS for online citizen services

Thursday, March 11, 2010 09:25:45 PM, UNI

Mumbai: The Maharashtra Government and Tata Consultancy Services today formed a joint-venture to launch internet-based, online citizen services in the state.


Maharashtra online portal, the first of its kind on this scale by any state government in the country, will be a 'one-stop-shop' with end-to-end online processing and delivery of any citizen's request for services by the respective authorities at state, district and Taluka level headquarters.


The JV plans to roll out around 40 citizen services across 15 departments in the first year of operations and eventually increase this to 300 different services.


The same will be available in Marathi and English languages.


Maharashtra Online will be a 10-year JV with TCS holding 74 per cent equity and the Government of Maharashtra holding 26 per cent.


The project will be rolled out on the current IT infrastructure of the state Government.


The JV will also provide DigiGOV framework for increasing the intra office efficiencies across the state administration. In phase one, all departments of the state secretariat will convert paper files into e-files, create processes, and track the file till decision making is completed on a real time basis.


Chief Minister Ashok Chavan hoped that launch of Mahaonline will help the government administration to become more efficient and transparent. ''The digitization process of government files will enhance decision making. Citizens will have easy access of information and services through the portal which will have user friendly features. Additionally call centers will be set up to provide information on government services. All these initiatives will propel Maharashtara's position in eGovernance initiatives in the country'', he said.


To ensure seamless processing of requests from citizens of the state and provide a high level of service delivery, the citizen service portal ( will be integrated at the back-end with DigiGOV, the state-of-the-art framework solution developed by TCS.

This will provide an electronic gateway into the State Government's portfolio of services to citizens and businesses.


The TCS Chief Executive Office and Managing Director N Chandrasekaran said, ''We will help the Government of Maharashtra realise its vision to provide integrated services to the citizens through use of information and communication technologies to enhance speed, convenience, transparency for users''.
