Problem at Hand:
Lack of visibility and control:
Pertaining to each scheme with regard to Centrally Sponsor Schemes, UGC Schemes, State Sponsor Schemes, so there were number of paper-based applications which applicants are to duly fill in. This resulted in inconsistency in overall key parameters, thereby affecting the decision making process. Crores of Paper-based applications were occupying huge space and locating an application so it was very difficult and often leads to mistakes and errors as well. So Dependency on huge manpower for processing these error-prone applications was difficult to control.
Applications moving from each table and hand, causing damages to paper-based applications are liable to further errors. Also, applications moving from place to place, person to person get torn, damage or stain.
Low quality results:
Damaged documents are particularly hard to read, making processing more difficult and time-consuming.
Delays in Processing:
So Processing paper documents was causing many processing delays. Manual data entry is a time-consuming, so outdate process that leads to inefficiency across the entire office.
As stated above, manual document processing is an arduous, so time-consuming process that hinders office productivity and efficiency. Manual system was also acting as hindrance to growth and efficiency of human resources.
Affected Queries and Decisions:
In the manual process, so it was difficult to meet any simple query. So Decisions were not based on real time facts and figures.
Complexities in processing manual applications:
Besides all above, students were not able to see the glimpse of all schemes for which they are eligible. So They were not able to take the informed decisions on the scholarship schemes which are more suitable and beneficial. For every scheme, so they need to fill the form separately causing wastage of time and energy. On the other hand, processing of multiple applications for a single student makes the authorities overburdened which results in errors, duplication, more human intervention etc.
