by identifying certain minimum date to be captured by Commissionerate.
This target was perused rigorously closing the last year. By
pursuing rigorously towards Central Excise Computerisation at
Patna, the target which has been fixed to us e.g. Generating
budget head wise statement from RT-12 data using SERMON Software,
to reach a level above 90% for index of timeliness & index
of Completeness, to reach index of Correctness above 90%, we
have already achieved those target within stipulated time frame.
Now, Patna Commissionerate under Center Excise Computerisation
project has already achieved timeliness 100%, Completeness of
RT-12 records 100%, Correctness of record is 92% & quality
of data is also 92%. In future we are trying to achieve 100%
in case of Correctness & quality. Our Position under Computerisation
in all over India comes out to be number four and in Kanpur
Zone, our position is on number two which we will try to make
it number one in next month. Directorate of Systems, Chennai
has already appreciated our achievement towards Computerisation
& asked to carryout such quality work in future also.
