WEIRD to WIRED

A couple of weeks back, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has signed a deal with Ministry of External Affairs for the “Passport Seva Project” valued at over Rs.1000 crores. It seems that after implementation of this project, the process of issuing a new passport will be done in 3 days subject to police verification. This will make the delivery of passport services truly world class in nature.


Shivshankar Menon, the Foreign Secretary says “The Project, based on a public-private partnership model, aims to provide passport related services in a speedy, convenient and transparent manner. The sovereign and fiduciary function of granting and issuing passport remains with the Ministry and TCS will be our technology and operations partner in this project”.

Another reason for my personal interest towards this is that my B.E final year project was of the same topic - AGENT BASED DYNAMIC MULTI-SERVER REACTIVE WEB-SERVICES FOR E-GOVERNANCE. It applies XML based web services in trusted domain environment, using secure, congestion free agent transaction of both parallel and serial execution.

Its happening now.
