State launches GPS, GIS to monitor MGNREGA projects

Singh said CDOs in other districts have shown interest in adopting the technology and some of them have started sending their MIS data to NIC. Singh said that a report about this pilot project has also been sent to the Centre's Rural Development Department where officials are planning to implement a similar model across the country.

Agriculture Production Commissioner Alok Ranjan said, "If the model is successful in these three districts, it will be extended across the state." The use of technology and availability of data online for public access will check duplicacy of works and bring transparency in monitoring the development works.

Under MNREGA, 14 types of works are done including water conservation and water harvesting, drought-proofing including afforestation and tree plantation, irrigation canals, land development, rural connectivity, flood control and protection works and renovation of water bodies.
