  2. GXP APPLICATION -- Government X (for/to/etc) People application

    Tool to streamline egovernence

    Summary: So many egovernence projects exists throughout india, This tool acts as service accelator. GXP compatmantlizes with citizens & officials information on need & role basis. GXP does not need major changes to existing process. Only acts as faclitator

    Citizens desiring required service use GXP as an facilitator.

    GXP is an formbuilder framework, designed to facilitate online capture of data.

    Taking an example of applying for EC in tamilnadu.

    At present EC can be applied thru online and directly. GXP enabled apps can be done thru online only and personal visits are not possible.

    Mr X visits GXP Logs in using Google / FB / Twitter etc --> Selects EC --> Selects Tatkal / Different process accelaerators --> Pays based on service estimates --> Fills in required details --> Confirmation number is generated by GXP.

    Official who has to issue EC then checks if all required details are available. Official has to accept or reject on FIFO basis, Cant process N+1th application without processing Nth application GXP can also be used to infer statistical information ( best worker based on number of EC's issued Statewise,permutations are endless)

    if all details are present --> EC is issued and sent POST only ( steps to prevent office visit )

    Citizens cannot visit govt offices for any GXP enabled applications.

    Citizens can pay in any bank using GXP confirmation numbers ( elimates CC transactions ), go to bank write GXP confirmation number and Pay.

    Since citizens cant visit offices GXP eliminates middlemen & associated issues.

    Framework can be used to expand to different service enablers. EC,LLR,IDP,Birth cert,Death cert etc etc.

    Common framework of forms handling and process viewer.

    Example 2 )

    Citizens logs onto GXP --> Applies for LLR --> confirmation --> LLR is sent by post.

    Uses same GXP confirmation to apply for permenent license.

    To get permenent license Driving test is required, Logon to GXP , fix appointment --> go to RTO on sceheduled date with only GXP confirmation number.

    Citizens --> has only GXP Road test administrator --> Marks pass or fail against GXP. Licesnse comes by POST

RACER – Road Accidents Crime Evaluation Report

A computational approach is used to solve, Road Crime & Bribery problem. The goal is to avoid bribery among Traffic Cops and making easier to access complaints registered. It’s completely new idea and an innovative approach for real life problem. RACER Police Access is an Android Application used by Cops for registering and retrieving complaints from Cloud by XML Parsing. Every Complaint has own its predefined amount in cloud hence there will be no space for bribery. People can use RACER-User Access Application to pay fine using PayPal.



Transport in the Republic of India’s an important part of the nation's economy. Since the economic liberalisation of the 1990s, development of infrastructure within the country has progressed at a rapid pace, and today there is a wide variety of modes of transport by land, water and air. Motor vehicle penetration is low by international standards, with only 103 million cars on the nation's roads. In addition, only around 10% of Indian households own a motorcycle. At the same time, the automobile industry in India is rapidly growing with an annual production of over 4.6 million vehicles, and vehicle volume is expected to rise greatly in the future. In the interim however, public transport still remains the primary mode of transport for most of the population, and India's public transport systems are among the most heavily used in the world. India's rail network is the 4th longest and the most heavily used system in the world, transporting 7651 million passengers and over 921 million tonnes of freight annually, as of 2011. Despite ongoing improvements in the sector, several aspects of the transport sector are still riddled with problems due to outdated infrastructure and lack of investment in less economically active parts of the country. The demand for transport infrastructure and services has been rising by around 10% a year with the current infrastructure being unable to meet these growing demands.


• Bribery • No exact fine amount • Maintenance of Charge sheets for many years • No Centralised Control • Fake License


            RACER (Road Crimes Evaluation Report) is a mobile application used for CENTRALISED MAINTENANCE OF ROAD CRIMES BY USING QR CODE IN LICENSE. QR Code methodology will used here to scan the QR Code from the license to find fake license, validity of the license and the history of the license. This RACER has two types: 

• RACER –POLICE ACCESS • RACER – USER ACCESS Through these applications various traffic rules are updated in the mobile apps along with fine details so we can avoid corruption. RACER – Police App is used by traffic police. RACER – User App is used by people to view their crime history and to pay fine. Main advantages of this system are no bribery and centralized management of crimes. All the crime history of person will be saved in cloud and they can be retrieved later. Payment of fine will be done by two ways. They are • Direct payment to police • User side payment by using RACER user access. The Cloud is used here as the centralized control and by use of that we can easily find the fine history. All the details will be stored in cloud , in cloud we can see what are the cases are filed.


• No bribery • Centralized Maintenance of crimes • Standardization of fine and rules • Finding fake license
