SJSRY is an application developed to capture and track the beneficiaries, financial and physical progress of the works under the said SJSRY − ’Swarna Jayanthi Shahari Rojgar Yojana’, a scheme under which all the young and aspiring beneficiaries can be enrolled for professional and career oriented training programmes being conducted across the 227 ULBs of Karnataka. It is developed in a manner that the screens presented to the end-user are user-friendly, easy to navigate and aesthetically appealing.
It is used to capture all the eligible applicants details and provide a reliable database for the municipal administration to govern at ease.
The application includes features like maintenance of applications in draft mode, approved mode and approving facilities by designated authorities and report generation facilities as well to track the progress of the commissioning of this programme across the ULBs.
