How is the project unique?
With the vision to extend the grievance lodging facility at the remotest of locations and to reach the stakeholders who are geographically spread over the state of Orissa, this initiative is unique and quite different from similar projects. The application facilitates a common citizen to lodge the grievance directly to the Chief Minister who is at the highest level of Administration and his directive to the bottom level of Administration like BDO to redress the grievance with information to all the related offices in the hierarchy. At the same time, it facilitates the aggrieved citizen to monitor the entire progress of grievance at the remote location from the CM Office.
e-Abhijoga being a core e-Governance application of Government of Orissa, its successful implementation in Chief Minister Office has drawn national interest. Other state governments have shown keen interest to join this e- Governance movement. There is a move for replication of this innovation initiative in the domain of ICT having process enhancement, social concern as e-Abhijoga can easily be implemented and is available as a project as well as SAS (Software as Service) model. The strategic piloting and subsequent roll out has become successful in Government of Orissa with mass acceptance. Thus making Orissa Implementation as a Bench Mark Strategy and with minor customizations e- Abhijoga can easily be replicated in other states/Organizations with a strong National Impact..
