DoNER launches e-portal for Northeast projects

Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) Dr, Jitendra Singh launched a new hi-tech online “e- Portal” for submission, surveillance and follow up of development projects relating to Northeast falling under the category of Non-Lapsable Central Pool of Resource (NLCPR). Speaking on the occasion Dr. Jitendra Singh said, he was glad to note that DoNER is one of the first Ministries to have opted for hi-tech method of submission of projects and their follow up. This has a special relevance for the DoNER Ministry because this is a region based Ministry and the projects are submitted by the eight different States of Northeast, he said and added that this will also avoid complaints regarding delays or extraneous considerations including corruption, etc. Dr. Jitendra Singh said, DoNER Ministry is unique in the sense that it is the only Ministry in Government of India which is region based and has stakes with every other Ministry. To this extent, the new portal will also help in keeping track of various stages of project activities among different Departments/Ministries including Planning Department of North Eastern State Governments, Line Ministries of Government of India, etc. In order to overcome delays, the portal will be programmed to send automatic computerized reminders to the State Governments and others concerned, he informed. There are sometimes allegations of misappropriation of funds, said Dr. Jitendra Singh, and added that the Portal launched by DoNER Ministry will also help in keeping surveillance on financial, physical and visual progress for timely completion of projects. This indeed is a major step to bring the people of Northeast closer to the governance of Northeast by the Government of India, he observed.
