National News-Daily Digest: 3 Key Updates

Haryana signs MoU with Indian Oil for ethanol plant

1. J&K 3rd state to adopt road-accident data software

 Jammu and Kashmir became the third state in the country to use software for standard and accurate data on road accidents.

RADMS is a geographical information system (GIS) solution for identification of black spots, wrong driving practices, road infrastructure, vehicular defects, road types, damage to property, overloading issues, driver issues and other factors causing or related to road accidents.

The RADMS will immensely help policy makers, municipal bodies, road construction agencies, traffic and transport departments towards mitigation of road-safety related problems in the state.

RADMS was developed through the National Institute of Electronics and Information Technology (NIELIT), Srinagar, in accordance with the standardised format of the Indian Road Congress.

The Supreme Court committee on road safety had, in 2015, mandated all states to put RADMS in place for objective collection of road-accident data, as the collection of standard and accurate data was vital for preparing effective road-safety policies.

An android-based mobile application supported by a backend analysis dashboard and data server will facilitate complete end-to-end accident data management.

First-hand data-feeding will be done by the local police from the accident location, which will be authenticated by the in-charge of the concerned police station. The data will automatically get uploaded on to the back-end server.


2. Haryana signs MoU with Indian Oil for ethanol plant

 The Haryana government signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) to set up an ethanol plant in Panipat with an outlay of over Rs 900 crore.

The initiative at village Bohali with a proposed capacity of 100 kilolitres of ethanol per day will manage crop residue and prevent straw burning before the upcoming paddy season.


3. Doorstep delivery of 40 government services in Delhi in a first

The Delhi government is set to launch a scheme for home delivery of 40 essential public services like caste and marriage certificates, driving license and new water connections. The government has claimed that no citizen of Delhi would have to stand in queues for the services listed under the scheme.

It is the first home delivery scheme of various essential government services in the country. It will help to deal with corruption in delivery of essential government services and promote transparency.

Under this scheme, Delhi government will provide 40 services such as caste certificate, driving licence at doorstep of people in the first phase.

Eventually, more services will be added to the list in later phases. These essential government services will be delivered by mobile sahayaks with fee of Rs 50.
