The Manav Sampda initiative, developed and implemented by NIC Himachal Pradesh State Centre as a complete Human Resource Management solution, has won the CSI eNihilent Award of Excellence under the G2E Project category. The Awards were presented in the recently held CSI Annual Convention at Kolkotta on 2nd December 2012.

Dr. Saurabh Gupta, State Informatics Officer and Sh. Sanjay Kumar, Principal Systems Analyst received the award in the CSI Annual Meet in Kolkotta.

Manav Sampada is implemented in 146 Departments and Organisations of the Himachal Pradesh Government covering nearly 2.36 lakh employees of the State Government. It generates and preserves the service book of all employees in electronic form. It is also being used to collate the data for creation of posts, determining staff strength and expected number of retirements in a year and rational deployment of staff in various field offices. The transfer orders are generated through the software and joining-relieving of the transferred employees is accepted through the computerized system only.

The SW is integrated with 17 major eGovernance Applications of the State. A unique feature of the Manav Sampada SW is that the Employee Identity Code and password generated under this SW are used in 17 other major eGovernance application of the State Government for authorized access. It implies a single login id and password is used for all these applications. The menu and interface for these applications is also generated in the Manav Sampada SW.

A graphical dashboard for data analysis enables the decision makers in policy planning and decision making besides providing GIS based reports too.

The SW has resulted in huge direct and indirect savings. While the direct savings result from the lesser use of paper, the indirect savings are in terms of Green Governance, which result from the lesser use of paper, postage, manual processing of documents etc.
