GenProfit – Building Confidence in GPF subscribers of J&K Government.
The project GENPROFIT System has been designed and developed for Funds
Department of Government of J&K, for the computerization of subscriptions made
by the employees with the Fund Office. In Year 1986 onwards Accountant General
Offices on the request of Government of J&K allowed the Funds Department to
maintain the details of subscriptions made by each department. The Directorate
of Funds office came under the administrative control of Finance Department. The
District Funds offices were subsequently setup at each District level along with
the staff.
NIC J&K helped Funds Office, by way of financial support system and evolving the
standards, for the rules and procedures on way to various automation of the
system through BPR (Business Process Re-engineering). The project GenProfit
System has been designed and developed by National Informatics Centre (NIC),
J&K for Government of J&K. The process involves Computerization of
subscriptions made by the state Govt. employees of J&K with the Fund Office
since 1986. Before that all the GPF cases were handled by the AG Office J&K. In
the first instance the computerizations of GPF details of secretariat employees
was taken on pilot basis, using Oracle based technology. After thorough testing,
the software was replicated to all the District Fund Offices and other allied offices
as notified by the Government of J&K from time to time.
All this will help in transforming the Fund organization into a user friendly office,
by making it transparent by information dissemination through web portal
( Most current users of the technology are to expel manual,
monotonous, respective and redundant support of exciting practices and to
eliminate delay in the issuance of yearly schedules.
Wide spectrum is given to manpower development of department
Computer training to officials as per their requirement
