Cuttack: A standardised District Portal of Cuttack was launched by Collector Girish SN here on Saturday. Director Technical of NIC Odisha RN Behera constituted a team of experts for designing the model. The content service provider is the Luminous Infoways, which has made the website interactive and informative.
While various districts have been opening their websites, they were not built on uniform structures. This has led to confusion, and the real citizen-centric approach behind the purpose seems to be defeated.So, considering the situation, the standardisation of district portal initiative was taken, which is based on the content architecture of the National Portal of India www.india.gov.in under NeGP.
The contents and formats of the portal include profile, geography, administrative setup, directory, peoples’ representatives and many more, citizen services such as Acts and Rules, e-forms, policies, inquiries, guidelines to get caste and domicile certificates, registration of documents, ration cards, land records, Right to Information.
The content is contributed to the portal using the user-friendly web-based Content Management System (CMS).Under this backdrop, the NIC Odisha Centre designed the standardised portal for various districts. Behera was happy that more and more districts have been adopting standardised portals for the benefit of people.
