According to the official, the commencement of this online system will minimize the human efforts in recording, processing, storing, retrieval and management of information for the required services of the Jammu Development Authority.

This online system is targeted to be completed within four months and the Secretary Information technology ordered high-quality digitization of existing records as it will save time and make records easily accessible to the residents.
