Jharkhand: Jharkhand, the iron ore rich Indian state, is planning to implement Web-based GIS to curb supply leakage and increase productivity of its mines. The WebGIS would provide a dashboard for thematic mapping and reporting.
The information is currently scattered among various government offices. Even the regulatory authorities lack adequate and usable information about the mines and mining activity. This causes delay and lack of transparency in checking and applying all Central & State rules before approval of permit. Sometimes the complex mining rules are misinterpreted. Therefore, the Jharkhand Agency for Promotion of Information Technology (JAP-IT), on behalf of Department of Mines & Geology, Government of Jharkhand is going to implement Web Based Jharkhand Integrated Mines & Mineral Management System (JIMMS). It is currently looking for prospective System Integrator (SI), through a tender process. The proposed WebGIS will have all the administrative layers and mine related information, collected from various government agencies. As the network connectivity is a challenge in Jharkhand, JIMMS would support even on low bandwidth networks.
