Government of Haryana to deploy ADHAAR for e-Governance

The State Government of Haryana, India, is planning to deploy a statewide area network entitled ADHAAR that will connect the state headquarter office at Chandigarh to all the district head quarters at the Block/ Sub-Division/ Tehsil/ Sub- Tehsil levels to support all its e-Governance initiatives.

In addition to providing the network, ADHAAR, will act as intranet between various units in the state and enable the state government to take IT-led citizen services to all the rural areas and manage various state government projects and programmes. Haryana State Electronics Development Corporation (HARTRON) is the nodal agency of Haryana Government, which will be overseeing the implementation. The main objective of the project is to create a robust networking infrastructure throughout the state which will ensure seamless connectivity, allow exchange of data, voice, images and facilitate such services as email messaging and video conferencing between various state government offices.
