Kabra said the internet-based data application shall be accessible through all departmental websites at administrative department level, divisional level district level and zonal level.

To create a single source of readily available database for policy-making, evaluation and distribution of resources, the state education department on Saturday launched the internet-based School Management Information System (SMIS). According to the Minister for Education, Naeem Akhtar: "SMIS is the largest e-governance initiative in J&K with a huge base of stakeholders involving 33% of total employees of the state and around 26 lakh students."

SMIS, according to Akhtar, provides readily available digital details of all the 28000 schools in the State, their location, type of school, number of classrooms, toilets, library, science labs, boundary wall, number of teachers, number of students, teacher-student ratio etc.

Enumerating on the new e-system, Principal Secretary Education, Shaleen Kabra said the SMIS is the department’s endeavour to achieve the objective of every school having a subject expert as far as possible. “One room for one class standard is also one of the objectives of the department and this system shall go in a long way in achieving that larger goal towards quality education,” he said and added that the SMIS shall generate automated seniority and retirement lists and e-services for student’s teachers and schools. “Every official in the department shall be allotted a unique user-ID with password and shall have access to information within his respective jurisdiction,” he said.

Kabra said the internet-based data application shall be accessible through all departmental websites at administrative department level, divisional level district level and zonal level.

“SMIS shall inform the stakeholders on the state of affairs of the sector, its internal and external efficiency, its performance, shortcomings and needs,” he said and added that the parents and teachers shall be empowered with the school performance information to actively engage in school improvement planning process.

He said SMIS shall, in future, also have features like transfer management system. “Any transfer affected at any level in the School Education Department shall be visible to the higher ups and the general public and system will ensure transparency in the transfers of employees and put an end to the menace of corruption,” he said and added that the vacancies for a particular year can be worked out in advance and shall be referred to recruiting agencies in time which will not only curb the staff deficiency in schools at any point in time but also help to save the precious time in recruitment processes of the aspiring youth. Kabra said the other features of SMIS include online leave management, e-Service Books and online General Provident Fund (GPF) processing. “SMIS database is proposed to be supported by complete application software and the departmental employees who have the IT skills shall be trained to run the system from school to highest level,” he said.

The software for SMIS has been voluntarily developed by Mohammad Irfan Dar of Quality Innovative Software Solutions.
