Most of the locations did not even have basic infrastructure for distribution of power. REIL took a step forward and offered to provide SPV Power Packs at the above locations in order to ensure that the National Programme become a success. The project entrusted upon REIL include supply, installation, commissioning & 5 years maintenance of SPV Systems at 9417 locations (249 nos. of Panchayat Samities & 9168 nos. of Gram Panchayats) in the state of Rajasthan.

In order to ensure timely execution of the project it was essential to monitor progress of all the sites from a central location. The Web based solution was conceived to meet the expectations related to performance of the project. The solution provides current status right from status of site in the beginning to the health of the system and total generation from the PV.

    Objective :

    Monitoring the progress of Bharat Nirman Rajiv Gandhi Seva Kendra, smooth and timely completion of Solar Power Plant at BNRGSK and monitoring of various services from BSNL,RKCL eMitra etc
