Correspondent MON, AUG 16 (NPN) | Publish Date: 8/16/2018 12:40:59 PM IST

P. Paiwang Konyak, minister for Transport, Civil Aviation, Railways & Land Resources launched the newly improved web portal of Mon District on August 16, which is based on S3WaaS (Secure, Scalable and Sugamya Website as A Service framework).

The website has been developed on S3WaaS platform by Ravi Ranjan Kumar, District Informatics Officer (DIO), National Informatics Centre, Mon under the guidance of S3WaaS Team NIC, Head Quarters, New Delhi. The websites address is  https://mon.nic.in

While launching the website, Paiwang expressed his appreciation to Ravi Ranjan Kumar, for developing it which, the minister said, would make Mon district nearer and accessible to different parts of the country and the world. This will also serve as an information portal for tourists before they set foot in Mon.

Emphasizing on the network connectivity problems in the district, he said that he had proposed setting up of a satellite based internet connectivity mechanism; under National Information Infrastructure (NII) Projects, which works on wireless point to point network, to the central government during his last tenure as minister for Information Technology. He explained that in hilly terrains, optical fibre based internet connectivity doesn’t work properly.

He also spoke about how officials posted in far off areas consider it a punishment, but he asked them to work even harder taking it as an opportunity to uplift the people of the area since they are appointed by the government to serve the people.

In his slide-show presentation, the DIO showed that the revamped website provides enhanced user-friendly functionalities and interface.

It has a responsive design and that can be accessed through any internet ready device and is in compliance with GIGW (Guidelines for Indian Government Websites) standard web site norms and has robust security standards.

The website can also be accessed by visually impaired persons by using the speaking software which is easily installable on any system. A special feature for colour-blind users has also been added, which means they can change the contrast of website for easy access.

Kumar further said that the website has many new features incorporated in the new version which includes information about DC office, STD Codes, PIN Codes and telephone directory, tourism information, schemes, documents, helpline no., link to important offices etc.

The launching program was chaired by Deputy Commissioner Mon, which was attended by all administrative officers and Head of the Departments of the district and other staff members of National Informatics Centre, Mon.

Following the launching, the minister went to survey the construction site of Civil Halipad, near Mon village about 5 kms away from Mon Hq.

He visited two sites/locations in order to select the best and suitable site for the helipad.

Talking to the media persons, he said although road connectivity was very important, Nagaland being located on hilly terrain, often saw road blockages due to land and mudslides, especially during monsoon seasons. Taking this into consideration, the minister stated that he was planning to provide air connectivity to every district headquarters and ADC headquarters; so that alternative arrangements could be made during emergencies.

The minister was accompanied by the DC, SP, Addl. SP, asst. commissioner and party leaders.

Launched on December 3,1990. Nagaland Post is the first and highest circulated newspaper of Nagaland state. Nagaland Post is also the first newspaper in Nagaland to be published in multi-colour.
