Kerala launches Action online system for monitoring projects


Trivandrum: The Kerala Government has launched an online system ‘Action’ to monitor the status of projects and to check the files online to complete the developmental projects in a time bound manner. The online system was inaugurated by Chief Minister, Shri Oommen Chandy at a function held at the Secretariat in Thiruvananthapuram.

Action connects all the Department Secretaries and the Chief Secretary online. Sometimes, mega projects hit roadblocks due to small reasons. Action would keep top officials informed about obstacles in a mega project, as and when they occur. If there is any hindrance to large projects then higher level officials can be notified and Action has been devised to quickly find solutions in such situations.

Through Action, the Chief Secretary can monitor the progress of any file online at any time, especially files which have hit bottlenecks. Officials concerned will receive e-mails and SMS alerts regarding the progress of files, the moment it is updated on Action. The time and date of submitting a file to Secretaries will be recorded in the system. The system will also indicate the date and time of file transfer to Department Secretaries. This can be used to take follow up action.

While the Chief Minister will have access to every file in every department, the Ministers concerned can also check the status of every file in their department through this online portal. It will also give an update regarding the disposed files.

The Kerala State IT Mission (KSITM) has designed and developed the Action online monitoring system.

Jiji Thomson IAS, Chief Secretary; K M Abraham IAS, Additional Chief Secretary and K M Chandrashekar, Vice Chairman, Kerala State Planning Board, were among those present on the occasion.
