The first one is a new web portal christened ‘e-Munnetram’, which  provides the status of about 200 major infrastructure projects costing more than Rs 1 lakh crore. The next one is IT Nanban, an interactive platform to engage with the information technology industry.

The ‘e-Munnetram’ portal captures important details like the agreement date, beginning date, cost estimates, project progress on both financial and physical modes on a monthly basis, location data & GIS layers, photographs of the site on a periodic basis.

The e-portal permits heads of departments to update the progress periodically, flag critical issues and causes for delay if any.

IT Nanban enables all companies in the state information technology sector to interact with the government and contribute to policy-making.

The companies can access all the IT policies, GOs as well as tenders issued by the IT department. They can give feedback about the latest policies or issues that they are facing and need to be addressed.

The companies will be notified through email about the latest news and relevant work being done by the government and remain updated on potential business opportunities as well.

The Information Technology department will use the information about the companies in developing the policies and schemes that have the highest impact and coverage.
