The Disaster Management Unit of the Government of Maharashtra has awarded PruTech Solutions the Design, Supply, Installation, Commissioning, Operation, and Maintenance of Incident Response System (IRS) Solution project as per the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) IRS Guidelines.

The scope of work for this project largely includes:

  • Commissioning of IRS web application
  • Provisioning of enterprise IRS software licenses for all districts, blocks, and departments
  • Hosting the IRS application in a cloud environment with necessary OS, bandwidth, storage
  • Supply, installation, and commissioning of desktop, printer, UPS, and LAN cabling at State Emergency Operations Centre (SEOC) and District Emergency Operations Centre (DEOC)
  • Provisioning of training of the web application and provisioning of manpower for support
  • Annual technical support/maintenance for two years

The overall objective of the project is to minimize loss of life and property by strengthening and standardizing the disaster response mechanism. This will be achieved through more comprehensive, effective, swift, and well-planned action based on a well-conceived response mechanism. The IRS solution provides a participatory, well-structured, fail-safe, multi-disciplinary, multi-department and systems approach to guide administrative mechanisms at all levels of the Government. It also provides scope for the private sector, non–governmental organizations, community-based organizations, Panchayat Raj institutions, and communities to work seamlessly in the response activities.

The methodology will be equally useful for handling disasters such as earthquakes, floods, flash flooding, landslide, tsunami, cyclone, and lightning in the natural disasters category and chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) disasters and others in man-made disaster category. The application strengthens and enables the SEOC and the districts to plan for, respond to, and recover from any disaster. The application will be accessed in Emergency Operations Centres (EOC)s, Incident Command Posts (ICPO)s, and control rooms at various levels of administration.

In a 2016 report of New York City’s homeless program by the Department of Social Services, the administration called for an integrated management structure under an agency to support shared servers, minimize costs and streamline processes for its homeless prevention and re-housing programs. The re-housing and landlord management initiatives helped streamline the process of removing clients out of shelters and moving them into permanent housing and improving business relationships with landlords.

The DSS workers faced challenges while recruiting landlords to their programs, as it involved a burdensome paper-based application. The process required landlords to submit documents multiple times for each tenant that introduced many errors in the process. This became a burden for landlords, wastes agency resources, and slows down the process of moving clients out of shelters.

Through the re-housing program, DSS issued more than 350,000 paper checks, which the administration found to be inefficient, expensive, and not the ideal payment method for their landlords. DSS wanted to implement an intuitive landlord management solution that helps them meet their goals that comprise of three components:

  • Landlord Management System
  • Landlord Portal
  • Integration Services

The importance of e-governance in smart cities is inherent, in fact, it is the very foundation of running a smart city. Let’s discover the role of e-governance and how it regulates and manages the functioning of smart cities.

Data-Driven Governance

Smart cities have autonomous systems that would collect real-time information from everything like traffic management to forecasting weather to make better plans and decisions. These smart cities follow a data-driven administration mode to make sure that they are catering to their citizens to the best of their abilities. From targeting the root causes of problems to managing opportunities and creating solutions, data would surely empower the government of these smart cities.

The administrative agencies use the information to analyze anything from specific analysis of high disease rates in definitive areas to general data analysis for housing & infrastructure plan. The right information helps eGovernance.

Network Convergence

Network convergence means the bridging together of separate digital systems to ensure the timely delivery of high-speed internet. With network convergence, the public can get more flexible modes for communication and the right to information online. Smart cities will see more wireless connections offering a centralized system. This will not only help the people of the smart cities and the government in scrutinizing the people, but it would also enable the businesses to model state-of-the-art excellent business plans for the future.

Challenges in Smart Cities & eGovernance

The smart city initiative was launched back in 2015 but is still going through several odds and challenges. Whether we talk about the illiteracy rates, their resistance to change, or the data breach risks, there are several challenges that are hindering the progress of smart cities in India.

Trends in Smart Cities & eGovernance

For smooth eGovernance in the country, especially the smart cities, the government requires the use of more than one channel. Until now, the government has been using pathways like social media applications, SMS services, voice-prompted interfaces, smartphone applications, and many more. In the coming times, there are several trends that are expected to change the way smart cities and eGovernance works in India.

Faster Connectivity with 5G

The buzzword in the communications space is 5G. It comes with higher bandwidth and better speed, resultantly, 5G offers much faster connectivity. Smart cities would surely be seen using this network technology to have better and faster communication. Moreover, using 5G, eGovernance systems can be completed in half the time taken. And it wouldn’t go without saying that the latest developments in the industry like the Internet of Things (IoT) and ICT would also get advantages which are acting as a steppingstone of transforming these Indian cities into practically smart cities.

The role of e-governance in smart cities management is crucial and that is where PruTech Solutions comes into the picture with our state-of-the-art services.

For operations management, Integrated Command Center or the ICCC handles foremost and important intelligence. Data of complex nature is processed at a comprehensive level. Therefore, command and control centers’ intelligence is important for formulating policies and better planning. Information is collected through various sensors and software which are placed across a certain terrain. Post analysis of information or data some workable input is put forward to act upon.

In India, the Integrated Control Room has been set up in a few cities under smart city schemes. With the help of necessary software and sensory systems, informed decisions have brought in new perspectives. When implemented, it is important to gauge the efficiency of the ICCCs.

The answer to the question, ‘what is an Integrated Command and Control Centre?’ is a simple one. For admins, it works as a Decision Support System, which would take results-oriented action after calculating data collected from sensory systems. This integrated operation center has a diverse process.
