Haryana Cabinet which met under the Chairmanship of Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal here today accorded approval for listing of Citizen Resources Information Department (CRID) as the independent department under the Business of the Haryana Government (Allocation) Rules, 1974.CRID implemented PPP across the state, and at the same time has brought about integration of e-Governance principles across different schemes/portable of various departments and agencies of Government of Haryana (GoH). CRID has worked on data collection, data verification and integration of PPP data with data of other schemes and services. Nearly 73 lakh families have updated their data on PPP, which includes 2.89 crore individual members. More than 80 percent of the data for the various fields in the PPP database have been verified, either electronically or via physical verification through customized SOPs.After establishment of CRID, Haryana Space Applications Centre (HARSAC) was moved from department of Science & Technology to CRID. Further, as per recent cabinet approval, some functions and units of the erstwhile department of Information Technology (DITECH) have been merged into CRID (the balance functions and units have gone to department of Industries). In view of this, it was necessary to establish CRID as an independent department rather than the present status of it being under the GAD.
