Under Digital India Programme, Ministry of Panchayati Raj is implementing e-Panchayat Mission Mode Project (MMP) with the aim to transform the functioning of Panchayati Raj Institutions.
Under e-Panchayat MMP, Ministry of Panchayati Raj launched eGramSwaraj, a simplified work-based accounting application to address various aspects of Panchayat functioning. The erstwhile applications governing these separate functions have been strung together for the purpose of simplification. eGramSwaraj aims to bring in better transparency in the decentralised planning, progress reporting and work-based accounting.
eGramSwaraj encompasses various modules pertaining to Panchayat functioning such as planning, accounting, monitoring, asset management etc. The accounting module provides the Panchayats with digitized account books wherein all the information related to receipts and payments are captured. eGramSwaraj is primarily based on the concept of Work Based Accounting i.e., for every planned activity of a corresponding Panchayat Development Plan; the physical progress as well as the financial progress can be tracked thereby ensuring a sound financial management system as well as improving the credibility of Panchayat and its functioning. Consequently, for every activity / work carried out, the payments are processed through a two-level authentication via eGSPI i.e., DSC based payments that are initiated by the Maker (in this case Panchayat Secretary / equivalent) and approved by the Checker (in this case Panchayat Sarpanch / equivalent).
Apart from facilitating trainings for panchayat stakeholders, various training materials and artifacts relating to eGramSwaraj viz. Brochures, quick reference guide, SOP for Online Payment module etc. have been made available to the Panchayats on the eGramSwaraj website.
