Varanasi: The Varanasi Municipal Corporation (VMC) will soon implement e-Governance processes, at an estimated cost of Rs 351.49 lakh, in its working to extend quick, efficient and transparent services to the citizens.

Varanasi is among the 65 mission cities under the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) where introduction of e-Governance is under mandatory reforms of Urban Local Bodies (ULB).

The detailed project report (DPR) for e-Governance implementation of the Varanasi Municipal Corporation has already been approved by the central government, a senior official of the civic body said.

As per revised implementation approach a State Level Software Solution (SLSS) would be developed and deployed to cater to the requirement of all ULBs in the state.

In line with the state level approach UP has selected Kanpur Municipal Corporation as their first ULB for preparation of DPR and pilot implementation of state level software solution.

Once the software solution at state level is available then remaining ULBs in mission cities/state will be able to roll out this solution, with minimal changes to the main state level solution.

Varanasi Municipal Corporation would be joining the state level solution being developed by Kanpur Municipal Corporation.

The fund for ICT infrastructure will be released only after the state wide solution is operational, and an audit report is provided, reporting completeness of all modules that VMC needs.
