NIC develops software for decentralized planning

Plan Plus Software developed with Ministry of Panchayati Raj


Samir Sachdeva | April 6, 2010

The Ministry of Panchayati Raj in collaboration with NIC has developed a software that helps in demystifying and strengthening the decentralized planning process. The software known as Plan Plus is generic and open to customization by states, line department and local bodies.

It is a decentralized planning tool, which aids the various participants through the planning process, so that informed decisions can be taken by the participants in preparing, vetting and approving the plan.

The interactive workflow starting from need assessment, identification of project, work, preparation of draft annual plans, approval by Technical Appraisal Committee and Final Approval by DPC is captured. The package also provides a holistic view of how funds from different central and state sponsored schemes could be converged to carry out works approved in a Plan.

It targets the various participants which include Rural Local Bodies, Urban Local Bodies, the Technical Approval Committees, the District Planning Committees, State Government Departments and Central Government Departments who will be responsible for preparing, vetting and approving the Plan.

Rural (Panchayats) and Urban Local Bodies (Municipalities) can prepare their individual plans and converging these rural and urban plans could generate an integrated District Plan Document.
