The Gender Resource Centre Module, which is the first component of System Integration Application for streamlining social services delivery in Delhi, has been launched by Delhi Chief Secretary Rakesh Mehta.

Paving the way for inclusive e-governance, this module would bring the 125 Gender Resource Centres or the Suvidha Kendras of Samajik Suvidha Sangam-Mission Convergence Programme on a common platform by integrating them.

The move would enable these centres to access a common database of vulnerable population surveyed under the Samajik Suvidha Sangam Survey for provisioning various benefits and schemes.Speaking at the launch of the web-based solution, Mr. Mehta said “the SI Application is designed to provide single window access to the poor regarding information on welfare schemes of the Government and the community development services being rendered by the GRCs.''

Grievance redressal

The Chief Secretary added that with the next phase of SI, identification of the beneficiary based on their eligibility for various schemes will be automatically done.

The GRC Module also incorporates a transparent online Grievance Redressal Module for solving issues of the underprivileged sections as also a Self-Help Group Module for promotion of micro enterprise under the livelihood component of the Mission Convergence Programme.

Mission Director Shyami Sodhi said the System Integration Application would not only integrate all the partners but also make monitoring the activities easier with automated availability of online updated information and reports.

The activities covered by the GRC Module include community outreach, health, legal awareness, education, vocational training, micro enterprise and micro credit and registration of vulnerable under these activities by the GRCs.
