2 Purpose The exercise involves design and development of a Portal for Directorate of Rice Development, Govt. of India whose head-office is located at Patna, Bihar. The portal is to help put up the role and responsibilities of the Directorate of Rice Development on to the web for public viewing. At the same time, it will also create a new channel for flow of information across the nation through Internet itself resulting in substantial saving of typing and re-compilation of work at different stages.

Slide - 14

16 Report Management The Portal will connect to an RDBMS like MS-SQL Server at the back-end after proper authentication and will have access limited to updation of records or to fetch data to generate meaningful reports. All communication between Portal and RDBMS will be handled through leading edge technology like Active Server pages or ASP. All reports would now be collected On-Line by the Directorate. The reporting offices will log-on to specific section of the Portal and type-in the data that needs to be forwarded on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Slide - 15

17 Report Management Besides on-line collection of the core data, the ASP scripts running on the Portal will also be responsible for answering queries from authorized users like State Agencies or the Ministry of Agriculture. Such users will need nothing more than a web-browser and Internet connectivity at their end to access the latest reports available with the Directorate of Rice Development. However, they will need to establish their credentials using allotted user-id and password in order to access the Report Section of the proposed Portal. Slide - 16

18 On-going Work Development of Portal for the Directorate of Rice Development has already been initiated by NIC Bihar State Unit and details pertaining to notified as well as de-notified rice varieties across the states have already been published. The Portal opens with an introduction and it includes background information along with the Role & Responsibilities of the Directorate of Rice Development. Development version is temporarily hosted at on a computer system at NIC Bihar State Unit. The SRS of this project has also been put up on this portal as ready reference. Slide - 17

20 Time-Frame The Portal is expected to contain information spanning more than 1000 A4-size pages when fully ready. The reports to be collected and disseminated are equally complex. The resources available with Bihar State Unit are limited both in terms of web-server and expert manpower for such an exercise. Never-the-less, we have set a time-frame of 2 months to reach beta- testing of complete Portal. That means by end of April’2003, the Portal would begin to serve entire set of static information and management of data through this Portal would have entered testing phase. Slide - 19

21 Conclusion Training of Directorate Personnel on office productivity tools and data processing applications is already going on at Patna with the help of RCC, Kolkatta. Different systems to be installed under this project have begun to arrive at Patna. Some work related to wiring of these systems so as to form a LAN is still pending but it should be finished in March’2003 itself. NIC Bihar State Unit is extending all possible co-operation for smooth implementation of such a prestigious project. Thank You ! Slide - 20
