JNU to click first to e-Governance

Submitting admission applications online, getting a “soft”admission and then getting a degree by mail, getting all the data about pending leaves and dues through the Net and e-Mailing appraisal forms to boss, all this is now set to be a reality for students and staff of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) which will soon become one of the first universities in India to adopt e-Governance.

A meeting of all department heads and members of the e-Governance committee was held recently to discuss the request for proposal (RFP) submitted by the Chennai-based company ACCEL ICIM Frontline Limited which has been engaged to develop a software to suit the specific administrative and academic needs of JNU. The RFP has been developed after extensive dialogues with all academic and administrative heads of the university, that ACCEL has been holding over the last couple of months.
