IPS Sethi, Senior Director, National Informatics Centre

KCS 2016 – 


National Informatics Centre (NIC) is rendering technical services to nearly 650 districts across the country including Central and state government departments to improve their efficiencies.

There are around one lakh primary agricultural cooperatives societies which are doing credit and non-credit business. Unfortunately, even after 67 years of freedom, 20 per cent of the villages do not have any branches of nationalised banks. That results in immense difficulties to villagers living in those villages where there’s no bank. NIC has computerised 87 land development banks in Punjab.

FIPS 2015 – 


Two thirds of our population that lives in rural areas and cooperatives play very crucial role in the development of the country. NIC strives to serve the poorest of the poor.

Cooperative structure is 110 years old. State cooperative banks are having 1,000 branches and 372 district cooperative banks have over 13,000 branches. NIC’s endeavour is to leverage IT to enhance effectiveness of cooperative banks, to help the rural masses by providing financial assistance and facilitate easy monitoring of fund and disbursement.
