The state government’s panchayat and rural development department Friday signed an agreement with the IT major for the purpose. TCS will design, development, implement and maintain the end-to-end ICT solution for MNREGS, the flagship social development programme of the central government for providing 100 days work to the rural households, for five years in the state.
The same kind of project was implemented earlier in Andhra Pradesh. About six-and-half months will be needed for rolling out of the project across Bengal, informed a spokesperson from TCS.
This will ensure transparency in the public delivery programme. It is expected that by IT-enabling MNREGS programme the rural job seekers will be able to avail of the 100 days of work with full remunerative wages.
