It may be mentioned here that the Dima Hasao Autonomous Council is the first one to have implemented and activated these management systems of Information Technology in the state of Assam, all due to the active initiative and dynamic leadership with modern outlook of Shri Debojeet Thaosen, CEM, DHAC.
The Finance Management System is an application by which the Council can manage the inflow and outflow of funds of the Council. The software can also generate balance sheets, income and expenditure statements, receipts and bank reconciliation statements. A huge databank of multiple financial periods can be maintained. Basically, this software ensures smooth running of the financial activities of the Council.
The Human Resource Management System is another application which ensures that every employee of the Council is monitored in terms of salary, promotions, leave, attendance, etc. It is envisaged that the council will be able to manage the employees and address grievances regarding delays in salary bill preparation, service record maintenance, etc.
To successfully implement these applications, a state-of-the-art computing facility has been installed at the Council Secretariat, which includes 4 (four) Server Computers with fail-safe measures, Internet connectivity through VSAT, Unified Threat Management (UTM) System with Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) system of 6 KVA and local area network covering the entire secretariat. In addition, a town-wide network has been implemented using Optical Fiber Council with the servers, allowing each department to access the applications as well as the Internet.
Another important achievement has been the Council's Website (www.dimahasao.in) dedicated to the area in terms of its flora-fauna, its people, festivals, natural beauty and tourism hotspots. The website, world-class by standard, has been able to showcase the Dima Hasao Autonomous Council area to its full potential.
