Intranet Prahari Project Launched by Home Minister
All the BSF Jawans posted in 237 locations will now be able to access their personal data from wherever they are posted. This is a major benefit from the Intranet Prahari Projet apart from efficient office management which will help in quick decision making. This was stated by the Union Home Minister Sh. P. Chidambaram while launching Intranet Prahari Project in Data Centre at HQ DG BSF, CGO Complex here today.
Under this Project, worth Rs. 229 crores, network connectivity has been extended up to Battalion level i.e to 237 locations of BSF. State-of-the-Art Data Centres have been established; the Main Data Centre; a Disaster Recovery Data Centre (in a different seismic zone) and Mini Data Centres at Frontier HQrs for data storage. Sufficient cyber security measures to ensure network security and to prevent data loss or pilferage have been incorporated.
The system will facilitate operational analysis, efficient planning in the domain of procurement, finance and manpower management resulting in quicker and better decision making and is also expected to considerably reduce paper work.
