Next 7: Government of Andhra Pradesh-Online Legal Caseload Management System

Model Town and Village Information System lets the Govt find out if it needs to provide more housing, drinking water supply, health care, sanitation facilities and other welfare measures in any locality. It needs to survey/audit and monitor the existing infrastructure and what's being implemented. The best way to do this is to have an information system that can provide granular level reporting to those in the Government so that best decisions can be framed and executed. A primary goal behind the creation of the MTVIS is that the Government in this case is looking to saturate applicable services (100% subscriptions).

Business problem 
Finding out exact population and public utility usage information in different localities
IT solution
Build a centralized database of surveyed and audited data and put it online

Implemented by
Center for Good Governance, AP

Technology platform 
VB6, Access, GIS 

For this, the CGG designed a two part application. One part being 'offline' was used to perform surveys and gather information about ground realities. The other 'online' tool enabled the strategic planning and offered decision support to those in the Govt. The data collected allows decision makers to drill down upto the household level. Requirements by beneficiary can be analyzed real time (51,000 beneficiaries can be tracked in under 10 seconds) along with monitoring of KPIs and navigation through the data using GIS. The offline tool was developed in VB 6 with Access as backend. The online part runs on Apache Tomcat and is built using the Struts framework. HP's Xeon servers are used to run the system.


Built to satisfy the Govt of AP's saturation model for public utility services and schemes, this helps collate and analyze supply vs. demand
