Executive Summary

The transformation in Government functions is aiming towards better orientation of


service provision, keeping transparency in service availability and enabling simplification
in availing the service. The Transport Department, Government of West Bengal, is no
exception in its stride to attain and retain its goal to provide all possible services,
available in simple and transparent manner. In order to attain these, present processes
for service provisions and views of the associated community need to be depicted and
judged in As-Is Report, subsequently on which, needful changes may be necessary, and
those processes would be expressed in As-Is Process Report.

The Transport Department has taken number of initiative to provide better services to
its stake holder. The most of the offices of the department computerized with 2-tier
architecture. Backup database server is also in placed at each of its computerized office
to prevent data from any kind of crash.

There is visible improvement in the quality of services, though there is enough scope for
further improvement of quality to the stake holders of service and scope of
improvement in the internal office processes.

Service provisioning is governed by Central Motor Vehicles Rules (CMVR) – 1989 and
West Bengal Motor Vehicle Acts and Rules (WBMVAR) - 1988 and the associated time-
to-time amendments. In the organizational setup, these Acts and Rules are
implemented in purely manual, partially manual, and mostly computerized processes at
Regional Transport Offices ( 25 in numbers including Public Vehicles Department,
Kolkata), spread in the Districts, and Enforcement Check Posts in the border Districts.

In the perspective of e-Governance, the existing system needs to be restructured for


enabling the ICT services to be more citizens centric. Government of India has taken up
a massive effort on National e-Governance Program. There is nearly Rs. 23000/- crore
will be allocated in next 5 years for implementation of NeGP on various sectors. Along
with others, this department has been included as a Mission Mode Project under NeGP.
This report is a part of this initiative and lays down the comprehensive and detail plan
along with financial requirements.

Vision of the Directorate

To provide transparent and easily accessible service to Citizen & Stake Holders anytime,
anywhere & anyhow by building an ICT enabled modern administration that is equitable,
efficient and effective.

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 9


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

An Efficient departmental administration would mean lower costs of administration for


the department and transparent, easily accessible services at lower costs of compliance
for the stake holders. An Equitable administration system would bring about greater
transparency in workflow, uniformity & consistency in application of fees and tax to
citizen in similar circumstances and greater control over fraud and collusion. An
Effective departmental Administration system would help improve revenue yield,
maximization of voluntary compliance, reduced revenue leakages, reduce in disputes
with citizens and timely resolution of objections and appeals.

Implement
Implement e-
e-Governance initiatives to enhance service delivery

In order to improve the efficiency of administration, it is important that administrative


procedures are simplified and processing timelines are reduced by usage of
computerized systems. Faster grant of services to the citizen (registration, License,
Permit etc.) and electronic processing would be important. Following areas has been
given emphasis in designing and identifying the e-Governance services.

G2C Category –

• E-Learner License – Issue of Learner License through Internet.


• E-License Test – Learner License test through Internet.
• E-Status enquiry for a particular application. - Tracking Status of any
application through Internet.
• E-information for a particular service. – Information on ‘Requirements
‘Requirements for a
particular service’ through Internet.
• Rules, amendments, different forms, procedures for a service etc. on web.
• RTI
• Public Grievance Redressal.
• Development of Permit software
• Development of software for Enforcement activities
• Development of software for Temporary Registration

G2C Category –

• Payment of Tax through Banks – Road Tax payment through authorized banks

G2B & G2G Category –

• Interface with different Govt. Offices and stakeholders.


• MIS reports
• State Level Vehicle & Driving License Register through centralized database

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 10


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

• Stolen Vehicle Register & Connectivity with National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB)
• Inter-connectivity between RTOs

There are many MIS reports required to be brought under ICT activity for over all
improvement of functioning of the Department.

Provide visibility to the stake holder

Providing visibility to the different stake holder is an important steps towards achieving
transparency in the administration. Implementation of such a facility is considered the
hallmark of a good administration as it requires streamlining of all internal procedures
of the department. Transport department places lot of emphasis on streamlining
procedures through implementation of customized National Level Transport Software
namely VAHAN (for vehicle registration) and SARATHI (for Driving License) and providing
visibility to the stake holders.

Gap Analysis and Change management Requirements

Major gaps in the system were identified such as Network (Inter connectivity of RTOs
through West Bengal State Wide Area Network (WBSWAN)) is the critical factor for
success of the system in place. Backup Wide Area Network of Leased Line is suggested
to overcome the problem. Important major check posts are suggested to have database
server synchronized with central server to be installed at Writers Building.

It is proposed to reorganize the structure along functional line to bring in expertise in


the functionality and better and efficient service. Common service center may be
established at head quarter so that they can provide services more reliably even on
phone to the line offices. Application of Learner License may use the service of this unit
extensively. Services of CSC can be further extended to citizen in future.

Public Private partnership


partnership

Different mode of public private partnership is discussed as appropriate for different


services. Internet access may be provided to citizen for filing of e-learner license, for e-
enquiry of service status/Tax amount/ Fee amount etc., Kiosk at the RTO office.

Stake holders including owner of the vehicle / license are required to visit RTO offices
unit for any kind of service. They are required to wait in long queue to get his turn. At
present many of the Act, Rules are laid in such a way that for a particular service a
person has to visit more than once. Simplification of such rules is essential to promote
faster service.

1. Introduction

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 12


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

1.1 The National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) is a major initiative of the Government of
India (GoI) for ushering e-Governance on a national scale. The plan builds on the
experience gained in implementing several e-Governance initiatives in the country. One
of the learning that forms core of the NeGP is its stress on citizen centric service as
against a typical application development / departmental computerization.

1.2 The plan essentially consists of core policies, integrated service projects that cut
across departments, Mission Mode Projects (MMPs) in the Central and State Sector.
Under this NeGP programme, actions plans are required to be drawn out immediately at
the level of state Government initially for sanction of necessary fund for execution of the
project.

1.3 Fourteen line departments of the Government of West Bengal have been selected to
bring under the NeGP project are as follows.

(1) Land Records Department


(2) Property Registration Department
(3) Road Transport Department
(4) Panchayat and Rural Development Department
(5) Commercial Taxes Department
(6) Treasury Department
(7) Agriculture Department
(8) Municipal Affairs Department
(9) Police Department
(10) Employment Department
(11) Women, Child Development and Social Welfare Department
(12) Cooperation Department
(13) School Education Department
(14) Health and Family Welfare.

1.4 ICT has been introduced in Transport Department since 1991. With the technology
upgrade, Department has also taken initiative to orient itself to absorb and adsorb the
latest technology. In line with the NeGP program taken by central government, it is the
need of hour to introduce e-Governance solution in the Government. In Consequence,
transformation in Government functions is aimed towards better orientation of service
provision, keeping transparency in service availability and enabling simplification in
availing of the service.

2.2 Organizational Classification

The RTOs may be broadly classified on the basis of (1) Computerization (2) Work
load in terms of number of Demand-side Stake-holders.

Classification on computerization has 3 types e.g.

(a) Host based Transport Information System (TIS) implemented at RTO,


Midnapur, and RTO, Burdwan
(b) Client Server (C/S) Based TIS implemented at RTO Barasat,
Barrackpur, Durgapur, Purulia, Hooghly
(c) National Level uniform Transport Software namely VAHAN (for
vehicle registration) and SARATHI (for Driving License) has been
implemented at PVD, RTO Alipur, RTO Birbhum, RTO Howrah

Based on the workload in terms of demand service and


revenue collection all 25 RTOs in the state may be categorized
in three classes’ e.g.

(a) There are 5 RTOs where workload is very high e.g. PVD, Kolkata,
RTO Howrah, South 24 Parganas, Burdwan, and Siliguri.
(b) There are 7 RTOs where workload is medium e.g. RTO Hooghly,
Barrackpur, Barasat, Midnapur, Durgapur, Asansole, RTO Darjeeling.
(c) There are 13 RTOs/ ARTOs where workload is low e.g. RTO Tamluk,
Contai, Nadia, Birbhum, Purulia, Murshidabad, Raygunj, Balurghat,
CoochBehar, Malda, Bankura, Alipurduar, and RTO Jalpaiguri.

7. Services from Enforcement Activities

7.1 Workflow:

Step-
Step-1:

Enforcement raids on motor vehicles are conducted by RTO , ARTO. and MVI.’s
as per programme fixed earlier. Offended vehicles are apprehended and seizure
lists (SL) are issued against the documents seized. The date, place & time, list of
seized documents and the offences detected are mentioned in the SL with a
direction to appear for compounding of the offences on certain date. The SL
bears a unique serial number.

Step-
Step-2:

For the offences like nonpayment of tax or without registration or without permit
the vehicle may be seized and detained under the custody of government or
private custodian. The fact of seizure of vehicle is specifically mentioned in the
S.L. and a separate notice is issued to pay the tax due.

Step-
Step-3:

The cases detected are entered in the case register wherein every details of the
S.L. is noted and a case number is generated.

Step-
Step-4:

The owner / driver approach the authority in writing to compound the offences
and to dispose of the case. The owner / driver may produce documents related
to the offence booked to minimize its gravity.

Step-
Step-5:

The authority may reframe the offences on the basis of documents produced and
finally directs the owner / driver to deposit the total compounding amount, as
assessed on the basis of rate of fine prescribed against each offence in the G.O.
Even the offences may be dropped if found justified.

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 44


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

Step-
Step-6:

In case where the vehicle is seized for nonpayment of tax, the authority assesses
the tax & penalty due and directs to deposit the same. In case the seized
vehicle is kept under the custody of Govt. custodian, then custodian fee is
assessed at the rate prescribed in the G.O. and that is to be paid by the owner.

Step-
Step-7:

The owner pays the compounding amount and tax & custodian fee, if due, at the
cash section against separate receipts.

Step-
Step-8:

The fact of realization of compounding amount, tax and custodian fee is noted
in the compounding register against the concerned case number. The seized
documents are released and the case is disposed of.

Step-
Step-9:

If the vehicle was seized, the authority issues release order for the vehicle. When
the vehicle is kept under the custody of private custodian, the custodian fee is
assessed and the custodian realizes the fee and releases the vehicle.

Step 10:
10:

If the due tax and penalty of any seized vehicle is not paid within 30 days from
the date of seizure, then the demand is enhanced to ‘aggregate amount’ i.e.
double the tax due plus usual penalty and notice is served to the owner to pay
the same within another 15 days. If the demand is paid the vehicle is released as
above.

Step-
Step-11:

If the aggregate amount is not paid within 60 days of seizure, the seized vehicle
is sold in auction. From the sale proceeds the demand is realized and the excess
amount if any is returned to the owner. If the sale proceeds are less the demand,
the balance amount is realized in other ways.

M.V.I.’s as per programme fixed earlier. Offended vehicles are
apprehended and seizure lists (S.L.) are issued against the documents
seized. The date, place & time, list of seized documents and the offences
detected are mentioned in the S.L. with a direction to appear for
compounding of the offences on certain date. The S.L. bears a unique serial
number.

Step-2:

For the offences like nonpayment of tax or without registration or without


permit the vehicle may be seized and detained under the custody of
government or private custodian. The fact of seizure of vehicle is
specifically mentioned in the S.L. and a separate notice is issued to pay the
tax due.

National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

The cases detected are entered in the case register wherein every details of
the S.L. is noted and a case number is generated.

Step-4:

The owner / driver approach the authority in writing to compound the


offences and to dispose of the case. The owner / driver may produce
documents related to the offence booked to minimize its gravity.

Step-5:

The authority may reframe the offences on the basis of documents


produced and finally directs the owner / driver to deposit the total
compounding amount, as assessed on the basis of rate of fine prescribed
against each offence in the G.O. Even the offences may be dropped if found
justified.

Step-6:

In case where the vehicle is seized for nonpayment of tax, the authority
assesses the tax & penalty due and directs to deposit the same. In case
the seized vehicle is kept under the custody of Govt. custodian, then
custodian fee is assessed at the rate prescribed in the G.O. and that is to
be paid by the owner.

Step-7:

The owner pays the compounding amount and tax & custodian fee, if due,
at the cash section against separate receipts.

Step-8:

The fact of realization of compounding amount, tax and custodian fee is


noted in the compounding register against the concerned case number.
The seized documents are released and the case is disposed of.

Step-9:

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 126


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

If the vehicle was seized, the authority issues release order for the vehicle.
When the vehicle is kept under the custody of private custodian, the
custodian fee is assessed and the custodian realizes the fee and releases
the vehicle.

Step 10:

If the due tax & penalty of any seized vehicle is not paid within 30 days
from the date of seizure, then the demand is enhanced to ‘aggregate
amount’ i.e. double the tax due plus usual penalty and notice is served to
the owner to pay the same within another 15 days. If the demand is paid
the vehicle is released as above.

Step-11:

If the aggregate amount is not paid within 60 days of seizure, the seized
vehicle is sold in auction. From the sale proceeds the demand is realized and
the excess amount if any is returned to the owner. If the sale proceeds are
less the demand, the balance amount is realized in other ways.

anytime, anywhere & anyhow by building an ICT enabled modern administration that is
equitable, efficient and effective.

10.1.1
10.1.1 Objective
10.1.1.1 To achieve the vision the Directorate has grabbed the opportunity of
NeGP from Central Government for technical and financial assistance. This report
is a part of this initiative and lays down the comprehensive and detail plan along
with financial requirements.

10.1.1.2 State Holder is required to visit RTOs for any kind of service. The more
are these interaction there is greater chances of connivance between state
holders and Officers. Moreover state holders or representatives of state holders
have to wait in long queue to get his turn. In cases, the Act, Rules are laid in
such a way that for a particular service a person has to visit the office more than
once.

10.1.1.3 To avoid these inconveniences and to achieve the vision following areas
identified to emphasize.

1. Simplification of Registration Process to accept application for registration by


state of the art technology and issue of Certificates.
2. Payment of Tax through Back / Payment gateway.
3. Application and issue of Learner License on the Web.
4. Tracking and finding the details of State Register vehicles/License through
Central Data Base Server.
5. Building of State Level Stolen vehicle register.
6. Issue os electronic tax demand notice where applicable.

10.1
10.1.2
.1.2 Service levels

10.1.2.1 International best practices and Study reports at national level conducted by
department of Revenue, Ministry of Finance, Government of India are considered to
identify the electronic services to be provided on the net to make services accessible
anywhere, anytime and anyhow and to bring down the office visit of the stake holders,
thus enabling the Department to provide transparent services.

10.1.2.2 The modus operandi of functional activities need to be changed and that
required to be brought into the administration for a success of the e-services. Changes

10.1.4
.1.4 Service Delivery Model

10.1.4.1
10.1.4.1 Payment of Tax

1) Pay tax at Bank/Post Office counter by filling Tax declaration form.


2) By e-payment service by accessing Web Portal and Payment Gateway of
designated Bank.
3) Through Registered Agency at kiosk or common service center.

10.1.4.2
10.1.4.2 Refund of Tax

10.1.4.2.1
10.1.4.2.1 Application

1) Apply for refund at counter.


2) Through Web Portal. In such a scenario the registered owner must have
his user id and password issued from department before hand.

10.1.4.2.2
10.1.4.2.2 Refund

1) By Registered post in case owner has opted for such request. Bank details
will be printed on the cheque.
2) Window service on specific request of owner. Bank details will be printed
on the cheque.

10.1.4.3
10.1.4.3 Endorsement of Permit

1) At check post through online counter service. Infrastructure at all important


check posts will be robust to handle all kind of failure to provide continuous
(365*24*7) service.

2) Low traffic and less value check post can not be built robust as that won’t be
financially viable.

10.1.4.4
10.1.4.4 Physical Document Delivery Model.

1) Registration Certificate.
2) Permit Certificate
3) Tax Receipt

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 137


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

4) Learner License / Driving License

10.1.5 Mode of delivery.

1) Counter service from the RTOs


2) Despatch through Registered post.
3) Despatch by courier service.

10.1.6 Policy

10.1.5.1 The importance of policies needs special emphasis to ensure actual


implementation and continuance of e-Governance initiatives. Essentially the policy and
guidelines would need to be drafted that satisfy change required in the process and in the
management of the IT infrastructure. In general for promotion of IT activity, the
Department does have the practice of taking back up of data, user authentication for
access to the system and maintenance of logbook at the system premises. All these
evolved only out of experience, but there is no policy framed for handling such situation.

10.1.5.2 Access control – Success of ICT adsorption is heavily dependant on access


control policy. Policy should be such that clearly defines all the scope of an authentication
level and mode. Update permission should not go with entry. The process of update and
recording of the same should be outlined.

10.1.5.3 Disaster Recovery – Application of information technology will be welcome only


when it reduces paper work. Existence of both manual and electronic processes
simultaneously will only delay its implementation and even may phase out ICT. Successful
e-Governance implementation will lead to paper less office in the long run and all
information will be available in Computer Database. So it should be protected from all
kinds of destruction and natural calamities. This is achieved with placement of effective
DRS. So proper policy is very important for it.

10.1.5.4 Security Policy – Proper security policy is essential for data dissemination from
Internet and intranet users within acceptable time frame. There are internal and external
threats always there for information system.

11. Recommendations

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 139


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

11.1
11.1 Change Management

11.1.1 VAHAN and SARATHI was introduced in the state to have a self-rectifying and
complying mechanism for business environment. It involves more and more participation
of business community into the system. So the administration has the greater
responsibility to respond adequately to have a positive impact in the system.

11.1.2 Main objective of the directorate is to bring in


1. Customer satisfaction
2. Prevent Tax evasion
3. Increase revenue growth

11.2
11.2 Strategy Planning

11.2.1 At present there is all the sections works independently without much share of
knowledge. The scope of knowledge sharing is minimum as it depends on individual
capabilities and efficiency without proper system of information in place. Moreover in
manual system the officers are more engaged with there day to day work rather than
contributing to future plan. This is not because that officers are not capable but because
of lack knowledge source and availability past reference information in organized form.
Further at present there is no ICT section of the department causing very poor system
administration.

11.2.2 The new environment of e-Governance will enable the administration with
sufficient data to analyze the revenue growth. So a strategy planning unit may be formed,
who will use the information base to assist department in the following function.

1. Develop alternative organizational strategies


2. Find out the weakness and strength of the system in place
3. Forecast revenue growth
4. Analyze the owner behavior in regards to tax compliance and suggest for
necessary improvements to be brought in into the system.
5. Study the scope of appointment of consultant in motivating the staff and officers
and to further develop human resources.
6. Analyze the strategy applied and the effect of it. Suggest further alternatives.
7. Study the financial implication of strategy vis-à-vis organization performance.
8. Assist with line ministry and Government for incorporating necessary policy
change and resolve other issues including financial issues.
9. Plan to generate pool of dynamic, skilled human resource.

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 140


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

11.2.3 This unit would also contribute in formulation and strengthening of different
specializing group e.g. Internal Audit unit, Revenue forecast unit, re-organization of large
taxpayers, Audit team, Common Service Center, Policy formulation unit, Interstate
verification Unit.

11.3
11.3 Reorganize RTOs along functional line

11.3.1
11.3.1 Functional reorganization

11.3.1.1 The tax in the present software is assessed by the system and hence no assessor
is required for collection of tax. A single man tax counter will be enough for the collection
of tax.

11.3.1.2 At present payment of fees are two counter services. In the first counter fees are
assessed and receipt printed and in the second counter fees are collected. Since the fees
are assessed by the computer, no assessor is required and fees may be paid in one
counter that is cashier counter.

11.3.1.3 The system can assess tax for the defaulter cases and print defaulter notice. It is
required to send tax defaulter notice to on regular basis.

11.3.1.2 Sensitive applications like changing of data, cancellation of receipt approval for
any services, tax exemption, blacklisting of vehicles, tax clearance etc has to be operated
by senior officers like RTO/ARTO only. That module has to be removed from the normal
users like DA/MVI etc.

11.3.1.3 Staff members may be organized on specific functions e.g. registration, tax
payment & revenue administration, Demand Notice, Permit related activities and
continuous monitoring all activities to enhance effectiveness of administration.

11.3.1.4 This will lead to 1. Greater standardization of identical work processes, 2.


Provide better service and greater customer satisfaction and 3. Enables better productivity
of employee. All these will lead to better implementation of the software and bring out
more transparency in the administration.

11.3.1.5 Functional restructuring may also bring about potential advantages to the stake
holders and improves the way some compliance activities can be undertaken.

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 141


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

11.3.1.6 Taxpayer Service – A single point of access can be provided for taxpayers,
enabling them to readily obtain all information needed to assess tax liabilities. The Tax
may be collected through Bank, Post Office etc.

11.3.1.7 Registration – A single unified system of registration can be established.


Taxpayer’s data capture can be reduced to once. Tax can be collected at the time of
payment of registration fees which will lead lesser counter service for new registration
case.

11.3.1.7 Permit – Permit is an integral part of the Registration and Tax. Proper checking of
Registration details at the time of issue of permit is essential. At the time of collection of
tax for commercial vehicles, checking of permit is essential as tax of commercial vehicles
depends on the permit.

11.3.1.8 Accounting – A common accounting framework can be adopted for processing of


tax payment and Demand Notice processing. Thus integration of tax payment and
adjustment will be simpler. Demand notice may be issued on and regular basis.

11.3.1.9 Refunds – All tax payment details will be easily available and considered during
refund processing.

11.
11.3.2 Functional process

11.3.2.1 Registration Process

11.3.2.1.1 The cell works as functional unit. It issues registration certificates of receiving
application and on the basis of verification of submitted documents. At present
registration certificated are not issued on the same day. It is required to deliver the
certificate on the same day or next day. This is possible only by merging some work flow
(say fees and tax both will be collected at the time of application for registration).

11.3.2.1.2 Dealer Register Master

11.3.2.1.3 The existing dealers were allotted the TC number and there is no monitoring
system for the usage of the TC numbers. Moreover many of the necessary information are
not yet recorded in the database and no online verification of the TC numbers is presently
available in the software.

11.3.2.1.4 Recording of Enforcement Activities/Challans

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 142


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

11.3.2.1.5 The challan information on payment of enforcement is captured in locally


developed software and has no link to the National Level Transport Software. Enforcement
activities are presently no available for SARATHI.

11.3.2.1.6 Permit is directly linked with registration and tax process. Presently permit is
not computerized and hence every time manually checking/verification is required before
issue of permit.

11.3.2.1.7 Temporary registration of vehicle and tax for temporary registration is also not
available which is required to develop on urgent basis.

11.3.2.1.8 Reports and Queries

11.3.2.1.9 Both VAHAN and SARATHI contain only same basic reports. No MIS is presently
available. For better monitoring and planning, it is required to develop a number of MIS
reports.

11.3.2.1.10 Endorsement of Smart Card

11.3.2.1.11 Enforcement cases are not endorsed on the smart card as the software is
presently not available. It is required to develop the software so that endorsement on road
on smart card is possible.

11.3.2.1.12 Introduction of database servers synchronized with central server will ensure
the data capture. Even when connection with central server breaks, the local server will
enable the system for day–to-day work.

11.
11.4 Capacity Building

11.
11.4.1 Local Area Network

11.4.1.1 Network connectivity inside computerized RTO offices are already laid and
operational. In the big RTOs LAN to be upgrade to Gigabit backbone with optical fiber and
distribution line must be capable to work 100/1000Mbps speed. There is no security
system in place other than in built hardware security of switches. Enough redundancy
should be kept in the design so that network does not fail and become a bottleneck for
the service. It needs to be IVRS compatible. Further it is also required to buildup
interconnectivity between the RTOs in the state for faster and smoother communication
between the RTOs. No facility for internet connectivity at RTOs offices is presently

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 143


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

available which is very much required for information available in different web site
including the website of Transport Ministry.

11.
11.4.2 Redundant Wide Area Network

11.4.2.1 The distant RTO offices including STA and check posts work as independent unit.
The data generated at those offices are required to be captured or synchronized with the
central server. At present no offices are connected through wide area network it is also
observed that network connectivity fails very often and hence redundant WAN can ensure
24x7 connectivity.

11.
11.4.3 Technology

11.4.3.1 The existing technology architecture is in accordance to the demand. The


existing hardware and software installed at present has reached to its full utilization.
Further it has been observed that in most of the RTOs, backup server is not available and
causes switch over to manual system in case of system failure. All the RTO offices are
need to be connected and state level vehicle register has to be built up. Further, in some
RTOs the system to be upgraded to enhance the capacity to cope up with e-governance
initiatives of the department.
11.4.3.2 Hardware – the hardware platform is required to be scalable, highly available and
high performance system capable of absorbing the future technology of next 5 years
down the line. It should support Open technology and open architecture system.

11.
11.4.4 Database

11.4.4.1 This also needs upgrade and to procure more license to cover entire workload of
the e-governance roadmap. It is better to choose a system, which can be incremented by
addition of a new system in modular fashion. This will minimize the unused technology
deployment. The database should support relational database management system in its
true form. At the same time it should also be ensured that proper security feature is in
built and have implemented elsewhere with proven track record in similar business
environment. It is also essential to have full installation and upgrade and continuous
maintenance support.

11.4.4.2 Computerization has taken place in RTO offices in West Bengal from 1989.
Presently the software was developed on Oracle/Linux environment. Since the version of
the oracle changes from time to time resulting different versions of oracle are
implemented in different RTOs. Since there is no ATS (Annual Technical Support) with the

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 144


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

oracle upgrading the version of the oracle data base is not possible. As a result all the
RTOs are not running in same version of the Oracle which will lead a lot of technical
problem at the time of building of Central Database. It is required to upgrade all the
versions of oracle to the latest version and all the RTOs will be covered by ATS.

11.4
11.4.5 Security

11.4.5.1 It is an important and essential part of e-governance. The threat to the system is
not limited to internal threat only. External threats are changing its type of attack and
enhancing its strength every other day. Only, placement of proper security at hardware
and software level can minimize this threat. Proper security policy also required to be laid
down to control internal threat and promote ease of access to the services.

11.4
11.4.6 Extension of service counter

11.4.6.1 It is necessary that every person should work with computer and handling of
physical document should be brought to its minimum. So it is essential to prepare the
environment and rearrangement of working environment in every office. This will require
civil as well as electrical work and in cases air conditioner also will be required. RTOs are
equipped with ½ servers and 10 to 12 PCs in most of the cases. Check posts are also not
adequately equipped.

11.4
11.4.7 Training

11.4.7.1 The entire gamut of staff needs to go reorientation program. Different levels of
staff execute different set of responsibilities and influence the management in its decision
taking. Training is required to be designed for each of these groups. There may be high
level managers, Policy makers, middle level managers and executors and also support
personnel.

11.4.7.2 High Level Managers

High level mangers decide the direction of the organization. E-governance initiative can
only rollout when the high level managers or decision maker finds it suitable for the
organization. This is only possible when the environment for it is properly built and the
players are mentally prepared and progressive in mind. Foreign visit of high level officers
may be arranged to see the international best practices. They may share knowledge with
officers of the implementing country during this visit. Instance of successful
implementation will definitely influence their decision to introduce and motivate them to
push it forward.

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 145


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

11.4.7.3 Middle Level Managers

An intensive training program is to be designed for them, to make them understand about
the e-Governance initiative and how this is going to perform their work in better way.
How different functionality is mapped in the new environment. How they can avoid extra
dependency on the support staff for any kind information written in file in manual system
or even in partial computerized environment. It should also contain how they will
distribute work among the different staff working below them.

11.4.7.4 Resource personnel training

A set of person should be trained about the different functionality of the system. This
training should be designed so that they can train the operators and other persons using
the system.

11.4.7.5 Operators training

Resource person will train the operator on individual functions and how the desktop
computer to be handled including in day to day environment, how any problem is to be
reported and to whom to report what kind of problem.

12. Implementation

NIC-WBSC- EGOV- TRANSPORT-1 Ver-1.0 Page 147


National Informatics Centre DPR_Transport as a part of Consultancy on
e-Governance, Transport Department, GoWB

12.1
12.1 Challenges in implementations

12.1.1 Computerization of the RTO offices has brought about a paradigm shift in the
administration environment when seen in relation with the manual system. The Transport
Department, West Bengal, however implemented National Level Transport Software VAHAN
and SARATHI without bringing about much organizational Changes. Changes are
imperative and the choice is only on the timeframes that the Department wishes to adopt
for implementation of these changes.

12.1.2 One of the key challenges that the department would face would be organizational
change. Migration to a functional structure along with on going computerization activity
and introduction of e-Governance services would imply reduced staff strength
requirements for executing a function due to improved operational efficiencies. This
excess manpower strength will be an opportunity to introduce more citizen centric
services and reorient organization structure. There would also be significant changes in
the power structures of the administration.

12.1.3 It is strongly recommended that Transition Management Team be created involving


key personnel of the department to plan the change management strategy that the State
intends to adopt. During the course of implementation, this team would monitor and
evaluate the progress of implementation and its outcomes.

12.1.5 It is a very much pertinent that department will employ consultant during
implementation phase of this e-Governance initiative. It is also necessary to build a strong
team for proper implementation, promotion of the system. System manager, system
analyst and programmer would be necessary to support and monitor system installation,
maintenance and continue its day-to-day operation and training of staff at different level.

12.2
12.2 Collaboration between various
various Government and private sector
agencies

12.2.1 Implementations of an effective tax collection and accounting system would


require extensive collaboration and seamless information exchange with banking agencies
and with the State treasuries. This is an unavoidable change and it may be highlighted as
the single most important change recommendations of National Informatics Centre. The
impact of reform of tax collection and accounting procedures are guaranteed to be
striking and would result in dramatically improving transparency and responsiveness of
the tax administration.

12.3
12.3 Public Private Partnership

12.3.1 Model 1: Consultant may work as private party here. He may access the e-services
through VPN Connection from his unit. He may provide e-Payment of Tax and e-
license and other services as would be decided by department during the agreement.
He may charge as will be fixed by the department for different services. This will
work in Built, Own and Operate (BOO). In such scenario the cost of establishment is
minimum because he only needs to have a PC with internet and VPN connection.

• Dealer Register Master and Driving Schools details to be rectified up-to-date and
making it available as required
• Development of recording enforcement activities on smart card.
• DSS for good governance
• Building of State Vehicle Register
• Issue of Learner license on Web.
• Development of web portal

first year. All suggested actions recommended for above are required to be carried out for
implementation success of e-governance initiative. This is also necessary to understand
that the entire process will follow an evolutionary path. So continuous monitoring and
necessary measures must be done from all corners of the department to make it a
