New Delhi, May 28: With Aam Aadmi Party at its heels in Delhi for this year's elections, the Union government on Monday relaunched the website on government's performance.
The www.performance.gov.in, provides details about functioning of different ministries. Apart from providing information related to the ministries, it will also allow people to check, with the click of a mouse, the targets and the outcomes of the government departments.
Cabinet secretary Ajit Seth inaugurated the website on Monday that aims to be a 'one stop shop' for people to see the performance of all ministries.
Relaunched under the Performance Management Division (PMD) of Cabinet Secretariat, the website's goal is to "create a knowledge and information portal that provides access to everything that concerns Performance Management in Government. We hope to make it a one-stop-portal in this field for government officials, researchers, commentators, and management professionals from both public and private sectors. Above all, we want this to be a useful portal for all citizens of India."
The site has a prominent slot for public grievance redressal system. It will show how the bureaucracy has fared in addressing the grievances of consumers
To satisfy the civil society it has Citizen's Client's Charter with all noble intentions mentioned in the charter.
An interesting feature of the website is a 193-page eFile User Manual. "eFile, an integral part of eOffice suite is a system designed for the government departments, PSU's, Autonomous bodies to enable a paperless office by scanning, registering and routing the inward correspondences along with creation of file, noting, referencing, correspondence attachment, draft for approvals and finally movement of files as well as receipts, says the website."
According to it, "the eFile is a workflow based system that replaces the existing manual handling of files with a more efficient electronic system. This system involves all stages, including the diarisation of inward receipts, creation of files, movement of receipts and files and finally, the archival of records. With this system, the movement of receipts and files becomes seamless and there is more transparency in the system since each and every action taken on a file is recorded electronically. This simplifies decision making, as all the required information is available at a single point."
