Periya: The Central University of Kerala started implementing e-governance on the campus. The system was developed in collaboration with ITI Limited (Indian Telephone Industries Limited) under the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, Government of India.
As a part of this, in the first phase, efforts have been initiated to transfer the existing files to the online system. File transfer will take place online and in paper form for the first three months. After necessary amendments, later the files will be completely online. Correspondence will also go digital. This also enables one to check the progress of a file online which will also ensure greater speed and transparency in university administration.
Soon after assuming charge as the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Venkateshwaralu had directed to implement the e-governance system. At present, E-learning is available for students of the university. There is also a system for students to evaluate teachers and the functioning of the university. Admission of students has been online since last year. Teachers and staff of the university are already trained on e-filing at various stages.
Inaugurating the training programme, Vice-Chancellor Prof. H. Venkateshwarlu said that digitization would help make the day-to-day operations of the university more efficient and ensure transparency. The importance of the online system increased during the pandemic. The employees are now able to execute their duties sitting in the comfort of their homes, added Prof. Venkateshwaralu.
Dr. Rajendra Pilankatta, Registrar-in-Charge, Dr. Rajesh R, Chairman, ICT Committee and Mr. Sreelesh V, Systems Analyst spoke during the event.
