Intranet Prahari Project was launched today P. Chidambaram, Union Home Minister at the BSF HQ in New Delhi.
“The Intranet Prahari Project valued at Rs. 229 Crores was sanctioned by MHA in February 2010. The project is an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Solution through NIIT Technologies Ltd for Border Security Force (BSF) where all major processes such as Finance, Inventory Management, Operations and Personnel Information have been automated and integrated to act as a robust and quick Decisions Support System and for consolidated view of data for analyses.
Under this Project, network connectivity has been extended up to Battalion level i.e to 237 locations of BSF. Data Centers have been established including the Main Data Center; a Disaster Recovery Data Center ( in a different seismic zone) and Mini Data Centers at frontier locations for data storage. Cyber security measures to ensure network security and to prevent data loss or pilferage have been incorporated, says BSF.
The system will facilitate operational analysis, efficient planning in procurement, finance and manpower management resulting in quicker decision making.
For successful and seamless implementation, an extensive training program was carried out. Around 20,000 personnel were trained on computers and software application developed under this project.
