Since the National Rollout of e District Login MMP has launched, States / UTs have sought clarifications regarding the implementation of the project in their States / UTs. This section provides a compilation of such clarifications and their responses provided by DeitY.
- Functions & Architecture
- Services & Project Management
- Financial & Funds
FUNCTIONS & ARCHITECTURE:
Can e District leverage other eGovernance Components created by different e-Governance Projects under NeGP?
Yes. It clearly stated within e district Integrated Framework for Delivery of Services on page 4, point 3 that:
“The objective is to optimally leverage the infrastructure created within the sort of SDC, SWAN, SSDG, CSC and therefore the other ICT infrastructure created by the State under various initiatives and harmonize it with the e-District MMP”.

What is the need to define Application Architecture within the implementation of e District MMP?
During the pilot program, it observes that the appliance development took a substantial amount of your time because the System Integrators required to undertake AS IS, TO BE, FRS, SRS etc. Supported the training acquired during the pilot, it strongly suggested that the States should leverage the work wiped out the Pilot States.
It also noted that several States have some line department applications already online/live, which are providing G2C services. It’s necessary to leverage these applications by dovetailing and integrating them within the e-District architecture.
In the context of the above scenario, it’s necessary for every State to develop an appropriate Application Architecture that factors the developments already made, either within their own State or in the e-District Pilot States.
Is it mandatory for States / UTs during which Pilot e District projects implement, to follow an equivalent functional architecture? Or can the State/UT revise the Architecture as per IFW?
The state-based on its prior experiences can prefer to keep an equivalent functional architecture or change it, drawing upon its past experience in implementing the pilot. Non-pilot states /UTs can study the pilot projects and are liberal to opt the one which suits their requirements. the ultimate decision on the strategy should be in line with the Integrated Framework for Delivery of Services and will be approved by the State Apex Committee.
How can the State/UT design its functional Architecture using the Cloud?
Please ask Para 220.127.116.11 Page 20-21 of e District Integrated Framework for Delivery of Services.
Is there a payment gateway solution available at the central level, which may be utilised by e District MMP?
Yes, a payment gateway solution is out there through DeitY. It also includes a mobile payment gateway.
The deitY has collaborated with NSDL management Limited because of the implementing agency for providing e-Payment and m-payment Services for all Government Departments within the States/UTs.
Is e Authentication necessary for the delivery of e District services? and the way it often integrated with e District Application?
Authentication is certainly necessary for the delivery of e-services. For further details please refer 2.4.4 D on page 23 of e District Integrated Framework for Delivery of Services.
Is it compulsory to integrate MSDG services in e District Login MMP?
Please ask Para 2.4.4 E Page no. 23.of integrated framework; it’s desirable to use all 5 components within the proposed e-District architecture for enabling e-services delivery to the citizen.
Is it necessary to finalize the Portfolio of Services? And what’s the procedure to finalize it?
Yes, it’s necessary to finalize the portfolio of services. The State/ UT liberal to prioritize and choose its services, however, the chosen and prioritize services should be approved by the State Apex Committee. Please refer integrated framework document para 2.1 (2) page no 12.
Is it necessary for the state to possess an Application Rollout strategy?
Yes, it’s necessary to make a decision on this before going further within the project. The state has got to decide whether it’s getting to use an existing application developed by an equivalent State, or adopt an application of another State. Accordingly, steps could also take to customize the appliance. Just in case an existing application getting used, immediate steps should take on getting the software application STQC certified if it not already done.
At what level is that the Functional and Technical Architecture finalized? Can the State /UT change the functional and technical architecture? And at what stage?
Functional and Technical architecture should finalize all before the discharge and preparation of SI RFP. Change in Functional and Technical Architecture wouldn’t be possible after the discharge of SI RFP. Doing so would severely impact the bid process dynamics and project delivery timelines and isn’t advisable. Therefore the State/UT should carefully finalize this stage before the SI RFP released.
SERVICES & PROJECT MANAGEMENT:
What is the broad scope of labour of NPMU State Resources?
NPMU State Resource would be coordinating with the State Team at State Headquarters and their key responsibilities would include:

The extra funds belong to the DeGS and maybe won’t to the enhancement and so implementation of existing and new eGovernance project within the district. Depending upon the distribution model adopted by the State/UT, the revenue portion belonging to the State/UT/Central and other involved entities could also be deposited/ transferred as per prevalent rules notified by the State/UT.
Is it necessary to undertake BPR for services covered under e District MMP?
Yes, it’s necessary to undertake BPR, this is often also a part of the SPMU deliverable and scope of labour. So please ask National Rollout Guidelines for e District Login MMP Para 4.3 Page 9 – 10.
Is it mandatory to issue Government orders for the enablement of e District Services via CSC /Mobile/Web/Government extension counters?
What is a “Transaction” in regard to e District application?
Please refer DeiTY’s letter no 3(39)/2011-EG-11 (R) dated 28th September 2012, for engagement of State Program Management Unit for providing Program Management Services for Scheme for National Rollout of e-District MMP, which defines a transaction as:
