Training Program on Manav Sampada to officials of Assam Secretariat
Assam is a pioneer state in adopting Manav Sampada for comprehensive Human Resource management through electronic records at the Secretariat level and District levels. The Trainings encompassed major features of Manav Sampada like updation of Service Books, online submission of leaves and approvals thereof, submission of Annual Confidential Reports (ACR), Annual Property Returns (APR) and Transfers and Postings. Secretariat Administration Department has successfully digitized the Service Books of all Employees of Janat Bhavan and has effectively rolled out the online leave, ACR and APR modules for the entire hierarchy of Employees. Further, Manav Sampada is also being implemented in all the districts of Assam and the Employees of District Administrations have been intensively trained to use the software.
Thus, Secretariat Administration Department under the able guidance and dynamism of the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Assam has initiated major steps for gradual elimination of the concept of paper and pen and giving a facelift to the entire functioning of Janata Bhavan, Assam for the benefit of the Employees as well as the public.
