e-SamikSha is a new digital monitor for bureaucracy to rein in slackers.
Developed by the cabinet secretariat with technical support from the National Informatics Centre (NIC), e-SamikSha - the second 'S' in uppercase is how it's officially written - has been operational for just over a month and has changed babus' working style.
This system will allow the prime minister to intervene digitally and ask the officer concerned to explain the delay or expedite decision-makingprojects and action points are already being digitally monitored through e-SamikSha.
Every task is assigned four status descriptors - Not Started, Under Implementation, Implemented and No Further Action Required.
The PM navigates through e-SamikSha via a digital dashboard that has customised drop-down windows.
