Haryana district first to launch village monitoring software

Chandigarh, March 26 (IANS) Known for its history, especially battle of the Mahabharata, Haryana’s Kurukshetra district has scored a first in technology among all other districts in the country.

Kurukshetra has become the first district to launch the Village Integrated Monitoring Software (VIMS) to bring transparency to development works being undertaken at the village level.
Launching the service in Kurukshetra, 100 km from here, Tuesday, Deputy Commissioner Mandip Singh Brar said details of all undertaken works, funds utilisation and other things, from beginning to completion, would be available instantly.
“VIMS has been developed by District Informatics Centre and with the help of this software complete record of any village of the district, block and that of various offices can be viewed.
Apart from this, the software will ensure transparency in development works and utilisation of funds, proper implementation of projects and their timely completion. It would also help in easy evaluation of responsibility and accountability of all officers,” he added.
The software will play a significant role in timely evaluation of how and when funds were utilised after being directly transferred to the accounts of the panchayats (village councils).
