DPMIS Records Data Of PWDs Since April 2022: PITB Chairman
It is worth noting that all records of persons with disabilities, including their gender, age, type of disability, and geographical distribution, are now available on the dashboard.
The Disabled Persons Management Information System (DPMIS) developed by the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) for the Department of Social Welfare and Baitul Maal records data of 150,000 people with disabilities (PWDs) since April 2022. This was disclosed during a progress review meeting presided over by PITB Chairman Syed Bilal Haider.
It was informed in the meeting that under the Disabled Persons Management Information System (DPMIS), disabled persons from across Punjab can apply for medical appointments and disability certificates online.
On this occasion, Chairman Syed Bilal Haider said, “With this initiative, the number of departmental visits of the Persons With Disabilities have reduced. Furthermore, their NADRA verification for the Special Identity Card is done online without wasting time.”
It is worth noting that all records data of persons with disabilities (PWDs), including their gender, age, type of disability, and geographical distribution, are now available on the dashboard.
As part of this system, the registration of all 36 Darul Aman (DUA) facilities and Modern Children’s Homes (MCH) in Punjab, as well as the monitoring of residents’ needs and corresponding arrangements, have been digitised.
The Punjab Social Welfare Department and the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) also created an app for registering people with disabilities (PWDs), operating model children’s homes (MCHs), and operating Dar ul Aman (DUA).
Apps aim to provide quick access to various stakeholders without the use of a desktop or laptop computer; all necessary actions can be performed through a smart app. This app includes the ability to scan required documents and crop them.
As the province’s technology champion, PITB is in charge of maintaining Punjab’s foundational IT infrastructure and systems, such as a data centre for hosting and managing official email identities. The organisation has provided systems and solutions that have had a positive impact on the province’s health, education, and law and order sectors.
