Under his guidance, the Political Finance Wing has embarked on an ambitious IT transformation of the whole Political Finance Wing through an indigenous development of a customized software for digitisation encompassing its database, networking with stakeholders, business process re-engineering, lateral integration with external databases, process orchestration, data analytics and system-based scrutiny of accounts of Political Parties and members of Parliament. The PF module so developed will dove-tail with ECP's ERP, already on course, for an ECP-level data integration.
DG PF plans to integrate Budget and Accounts Branches of ECP with FABS and also develop a software for GS to encompass its inventory and printing aspects.
The Political Finance Wing aims to develop horizontally and vertically in professional terms to match the progressive, pro-active, forward-looking, institutionalized vision of the Hon'ble Chief Election Commissioner.
