Slide - 1
  • 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.

  • Existing System
  • Till date, all aspects of information flow is
    being managed through different publications that
    are brought out by the Directorate from time to
    time. The information collection exercise
    involving offices spread across the nation
    catering to the requirements of 534 districts is
    being routed through telephone lines and faxes
    besides postal mail.
  • To maintain the deadline for submission of
    various reports, the Directorate finds itself
    with little option but to pursue the concerned
    information supplying offices through phones and

    Server at the back-end after proper
    authentication and will have access limited to

    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

  • Such users will need nothing more than a
    web-browser and Internet connectivity at their
    end to access the latest reports available with

    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
  • 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 http//
    culture 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 - 18
  • 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 April2003, 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
  • 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 March2003 itself. NIC Bihar State Unit is
    extending all possible co-operation for smooth
    implementation of such a prestigious project.
