RAIPUR: In yet another step towards making a Digital India, Chhattisgarh government is all set to introduce Student Lifecycle Management System (SLCM) by computerising admission and examination process in all the 210 colleges affiliated with the four universities in state.
The programme, scheduled to be implemented from December this year, would make the process of registration of first year students of different undergraduate and post-graduate courses online. Students would not only be able to fill in their application online but also pay their fees and other charges.
Talking to TOI, Chhattisgarh Infotech & Biotech Promotion Society (CHiPS) CEO Saurabh Kumar said SLCM, being developed by CHiPS in association with the higher education department, would link all the colleges under the four universities of Ambikapur, Bilaspur, Raipur and Jagdalpur. “Till all the processes are made online, manual registration and other related work would continue,” he said adding that they hope to complete the digitalisation of all student records by June 2016.
He said all admission processes, including short-listing of students by university/colleges for entrance examination, issuance of admit cards, generation of merit lists and subsequent processes of admission would be done through computer. “Students who are enrolled would then be issued individual login ids and passwords, through SMS, and then they would be able to pay their fees online and all records would be made paperless,” he said.
Kumar said the programme also entails computerising the processes related to examinations by making date sheets and admission cards available online. Students will be able to submit examination forms with their respective faculties in person before generating the exam hall ticket online.
Later, even employees would be issued login ids and all official communication would be made online. Records of leave, appraisals and promotions and other routine work would be digitized to make administration transparent.
