P-MIS has been developed in-house by NCRPB and has been hosted on NIC Server. The MIS facilitates sorting of Project based on search criteria:
Mishra said that the P-MIS is having unique feature of doing calculations at back end for monitoring various financial critical events for Guarantee validity date and monthly repayment of loan due date for each IA and generates alert for Guarantee Renewal and Payment of Loan in soft format i.e. email in advance.
MoHUA Secretary informed that this MIS calculates validity of Guarantees and issues auto notices before 2/1 month 3/2/1 week 3/2/1 day prior to expiry of validity of Guarantees. Another feature of the software is that it checks the adequacy of guarantee and in case guarantee falls short of requirement, P-MIS issues auto mail and informs Finance Officer of NCRPB and also auto mails to IA to submit the guarantee accordingly.
He appreciated NCRPB for using P-MIS for generating auto alert for issue of monthly repayment notice in advance to IAs for last two months successfully. He requested all IAs to update data w.r.t their projects which will help in monitoring & resolving bottlenecks in timely disbursement of loan, various clearances and help in completion of project.
