Union Minister of Civil Aviation, Jyotiraditya Scindia, on Thursday (11 November) dedicated eGCA, the e-governance platform in Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to the nation.
The project is aimed at automation of the processes and functions of DGCA, with 99 services covering about 70 per cent of the DGCA work being implemented in the initial phases, and 198 services to be covered in other phases.
Minister Scindia said that this single window platform would bring monumental change- eliminating operational inefficiencies, minimizing personal interaction, improving regulatory reporting, enhancing transparency and increasing productivity.
He lauded the DGCA for ushering in a paradigm shift from restrictive regulation to constructive collaboration.
“The project will provide a strong base for IT infrastructure and service delivery framework. The e-platform provides an end-to-end solution including various software applications, connectivity with all the regional offices, a ‘portal’ for dissemination of information and for providing online and speedy service delivery in a secure environment,” the Ministry of Civil Aviation said.
The project has been implemented with TCS as Service Provider and PWC as Project Management Consultant.
During the launch, the Union Minister of Civil Aviation also unveiled a case study, ‘DGCA takes off on a digital flight’, which captures the journey of DGCA through the implementation of the eGCA. The challenges that DGCA faced and the measures taken to address these through the eGCA platform have been incorporated in this case study.
