To bring the different Govt. offices under the same umbrella and pass the information within them NIC offers facility of Intranet to this collectorate. To remain on lane of the information collectorate needs to be connected to the other sub-divisional and Block level offices over Local Area Network(LAN) and Dial-up connectivity.

NIC is already configured a intranet WEB SERVER, MAIL SERVER and FTP SERVER on its own server. However like 24-port switches, modems, telephone lines, Router, Cat-5 cable, optical fibre are required to give a shape of this idea.

Database and information base that are already with us and may be very useful to general public/ Government servant are as follows:-

Land Records

Motor Vehicles


Different notice of Collectorate (including tender etc.)

Different Forms distributed by Collectorate.

Data Transmission from Block & Sub-Division ( particularly for Poverty Alleviation Scheme)

Provide mail service and intranet service to all Government Offices through Intranet Server

Public Grievance Redressing System :- Using this application Software it would be possible to register grievances through Intranet & get feedback.
