April 21, 2015 13:11 IST

TrainWith an aim to monitor implementation of various ongoing projects, including Railway Budget proposals, railways on Tuesday launched E-Samiksha, an online monitoring mechanism.

It is a very good beginning and now each and every project implementation can be monitored on real-time basis, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said here after launching the system.

Designed by NIC, the software is currently being used by Cabinet Secretariat, PMO and other Ministries for monitoring progress implementation of various programmes and follow-up of meetings.

"We want to monitor the progress of every project whether small or big as we are accountable to Parliament and people," Prabhu said.

Apart from budget-related projects, the E-Samiksha can also be used for monitoring the infrastructure target and board meeting follow-up.

Prabhu further said the system should be constantly upgraded to cover every aspect.

According to a railway official involved with the E-Samiksha, the software has been developed to make it a highly interactive web-based, user-friendly and customised system.

He said further enhancement can be seamlessly integrated with the existing module.
