New Delhi, Aug.19 (ANI-Business Wire India): Canon India Private Limited, India's No 1. Complete Digital Imaging Company today announces strategic initiatives in the field of education.

Canon India along with its channel partner M/s NETSPIDER INDIA (NIIL), will be working in partnership with the Government of Rajasthan, Education council to roll out the "Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan CTS 2010." This initiative combines Canon's technical supremacy and NETSPIDER's know-how skills to contribute to this project undertaken by the Government of Rajasthan.

Canon India will be providing the automated document feeder (ADF) scanners for the Rajasthan Sarva Shikhsa Abhiyan CTS-2010 project.

The initiative aims to create a database of the demographic attributes, education status, out of school children status and many such minute details of every child in Rajasthan.

This is for the first time in Rajasthan that the government has taken the initiative to provide basic education to the children from birth to the age of 14. In the year 2006, such a large scale scanning and ICR project was initiated by Govt of Orissa, which won the Prime Minister's award for public excellence.

This project proved that it was possible to visualize the Digitization technology in action and not only in demo centers.

This project is a replication of the same but in much less time. This project involves scanning around 3 crore forms in just a month's time.

M/s Netspider India (NIIL) will utilize Canon's high speed document scanning solution integrated with NIIL's DIMS and Forms Processing solution to provide one-stop solution to transform paper documents into database for effective information sharing and reports generation of various types as required by Govt. of India.

M/s Netspider India will be the end-to-end solution provider for Sarva Siksha Abhiyaan implemented by Govt. of Rajasthan.

Puneet Datta, Assistant Director- BIS, Canon India said, "We are very happy to partner with NETSPIDER INDIA (NIIL) for this exciting project as it will help us create valuable mindshare and thought leadership for our e-governance initiative that Canon plans to roll out in the near future.
