The Chairman of National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), Deepak Kumar launched a new multilingual website of the organisation. He said that within two months, it will be possible for the general public to rate National Highways through this website. He also launched a Project Monitoring Information System (PMIS) Moblie App that will facilitate close, in-house monitoring of NHAI projects on a mobile phone. Kumar said that the NHAI also plans to soon launch a public interface of the PMIS desktop and App versions, so that the general public will be able to view the real-time status of any project across the Highway network.
The NHAI website has been developed using state-of-the-art technologies and provides a centralised platform wherein NHAI’s different software and applications are stitched together and available for browsing in a user-friendly manner. Complete information about the organisation, HR, projects, policies, videos and project photographs are available on the website. To maintain transparency, the information is in the public domain. Apart from this, as a single point repository of all relevant information, the enterprise applications are mapped to the website, which are for internal use of NHAI.
To ensure timely delivery of its projects, the NHAI is now digitally monitoring them through the PMIS, which has been developed in-house along with The Boston Consulting Group.
