National/State Model - a new version
The above centralised RL&SCMS had limitations in providing the informatics to the state govt., regarding their reservoir level and capacity. Thus the state govt.,/Engineer-In-Chief (Irrigation Deptt.) were not in a position to monitor the reservoir level and its capacity in near real time environment of the state thus creating a lot of communication gap between the centre and the state. With the availability of the current technology of Internet and GUI environment, a new version called as a "NATIONAL/ STATE MODEL" has been evolved which will provide support to the state govts., in complete information management as per the CWC prevailing structure of management of reservoir level and storage capacity with complete administrative and management control such as addition/deletion of reservoirs, administration of user-id within the states, report generation, interface with the various govt. departments within the state etc. The new version is also being viewed with the vision of creating E-Governance in this segment with the following phases: The spread of reservoirs in the country with irrigation and hydel projects indicated as O and irrigation projects indicated as O
- Phase-I : The RL&SCMS has been operational at CWC covering 70 reservoirs of the country at present. The information has been flowing under the CUG of NICNET/Internet by the remote login procedures defined by the system through NIC district centres where the reservoir project authorities physically entered the data in collaboration with NIC District Information Officer (DIO). The system has been operational for more than 10 years and has been transported from Cyber to NEC and finally to Pentium System at NIC-CWC node located at CWC, R.K.Puram, New Delhi.
- Phase-II : The information available from the Project Authorities could be made available onto the Internet along with the salient features of large Dams to support effective water utilization and planning process of state govt. as well as of centre. Such a information could also be utilized by Crop Weather Watch Group (CWWG ) of MOA&C as an Early Warning indicator as well as by state govt. concern.
- Phase- III : The reservoir level data being obtained manually from project authorities through remote login could be replaced by the automatic water level recorder along with the data loggers so that the data could be pooled from reservoirs automatically, thus providing near real-time data of reservoirs to state gotvts./CWC/Ministry of Agriculture/Planning Commission and also on Internet along with salient features of dams as an open consolidated information. i.e. as case of E-Governance in this segment of water resources.
The main features of the new version of the "National/State model" of RL&SCMS are as follows:
- The revised version is evolved under Java and DB2 environment as an Web enabled application
- The administrative and operational rights are provided to the state government concern for the operation of the package
- Each state government would be able to generate reports as per the structure of the Central Water Commission reporting pattern
- The reports thus generated would serve to the state government to monitor the reservoirs within the state
- Central Water Commission would be able to access the whole data bank in the background
- The general information concerned to the state government, Reservoir Project Authority, Planning Commission, Min. of Agriculture & Cooperation would be available through on internet as an open information
- All the reports are generated at State/National level
- All activities are monitored on-line, user friendly GUI environment
- Maintains authorization(security)
- Online help/validation
The RL&SCMS has a hierarchical control structure to support the national administrator (NIC-CWC) and the three tier administrative structure with special prevailadge as per logic have been evolve to maintain authorization and security, are as follows:
- State/National user (Super user)
- State user (State administrator)
- Reservoir level user
The high level privileges provided to the State/National level are as follows:
- Create, modified and delete reservoirs
- Create modified and delete state profile
- Create modified and delete basin profile
- Modify and update the state profile, in consultation with state administrator
- Create,modify and delete the users and reservoir profile
- Interactive on line query support
- Generate consolidated report at national level of all reservoirs being monitored.
- Generate the basin reports
