E-Gram, Empowering Gram Panchayats.

E-Gram is a cloud based platform built exclusively for Grama Panchayats in Kerala. E-gram is a powerful data analytic tool which stores and analyses all the information regarding people in a panchayat. E-Gram generates real-time analytics on Population, Literacy Rate, Male-Female ratio, Poverty Threshold, Internet Penetration, Access to electricity (percentage), Access to clean water (percentage), Healthcare and many more. E-Gram's objective is to make Panchayats more efficient, transparent and symbols of modernity by leveraging ICT at the cutting edge level to ensure transparency and accountability in their functioning through disclosure of informaton, social audit, efficient delivery of services and improving internal processes and management of Panchayats.

Why E-Gram?.

Panchayats in rural areas cover 75% of the population of the country. There are approximately 2,39,081 Grama panchayats at village level, 6,321 intermediate panchayats at block level and 592 Zilla Panchayats at district level. Panchayats are symbols of decentralisation, governance and grassroots of democracy. Data is the most essential asset for any government, without data government has nothing to work with and would not have any base to act upon. A majority of these data generated from panchayats. Until now, our grama panchayats had little access to these data saved electronically and it was hard to maintain and analyse data stored in papers. E-Gram simplifies these tasks by storing the panchayat's data in a secure cloud which is accessible anywhere and on any device. E-Gram's built in algorithms to search and analyse data will catalyses Panchayats decisions quickly, especially on budgeting and allotting resources to various sectors. E-Gram also works with Panchayat Survey data and data fields are completely customisable. E-gram stores multiple surveys in its cloud. So these data can be plotted against most recent data and generates analytics. It works perfectly for Government sectors like Medice, Agricultuel, Socio-Economic and cultural areas.

"Huge funds flow to rural areas for the implementation of various programmes of the central and State governments, with the primary intent to develop the local area and provide various benefits to citzens. However, Panchayats are faced with challenges of inadequate capacities and in certain areas even infrastructure capabilities to effectively deliver these responsibilities. Many departments also tend to establish parallel structures at local level further disempowering the Panchayats. - ePanchayat Mission Mode Project - A status report. Ministry of Panchayati Raj, Government of India April 2012.

Reaching people is easier.

In a panchayat with thousands of people, it is hard to communicate with citizens or to roll out new announcements or benefits. Our research shows that mobile penetration in our country is very high, everyone has access to mobile phones now. So, in E-Gram, we have implemented a built-in functionality to send SMS which helps to communicate with the people faster than ever. E-Gram supports regional languages which helps to communicate across language barriers. With our built-in SMS functionality Panchayat’s can roll out benefits, announcements, or even acknowledgement receipts for certificates. Our automated SMS service can also send reminder SMS’s to citizens who are due to pay their taxes.

Find anyone in a panchayat.

Finding anyone in a panchayat is now easier. Search people with a single click. Search citizens by Name, Email Address, Address, Adhaar Card No. or find people with rare blood groups or people who are members of Kudumbasree.

Connectivity and Security.

E-Gram's core is data and this data is hosted in our massive online servers capable of executing multiple resource-crunching queries simultaneously to create responses immediately. Hence the data is stored securely in our cloud and the panchayat shouldn't have to worry about backing up or maintaining the data. We will do that for you. Your data is accessible anywhere over the internet on your preferred device with a secure login and password with built-in protection layers. E-gram has permission levels set for different users and can be shared among many users in a panchayat.

Permutational Search.

E-Gram's powerful permutational search algorithm can query and match the database with any number parameters alone or combined. For example a query like “List Females aged between 20 and 40 who are unemployed and from a backward community and who are postgraduates”, or “List all people who live near Kakkoor who are disabled and aged above 18, unemployed and graduates” can be fetched easily.

Monitor and Control your data.

E-Gram has built-in capability to monitor and control data operations. E-Gram tracks everything about the data including adding new data, deleting or moving existing data etc. All operations are stored in our Data log and can be accessed by an administrator. This will ease out the hideous process of data entry operations.

Who all can make use of these data?.

All this data is very important for an efficient functioning of the Government. This data can be shared across different government departments like Law Enforcement, Health, Agriculture or in Government schools easily and independently. The possibilities are limitless.
