A mobile app was also unveiled
Dr Harsh Vardhan, Union Minister for Science & Technology & Earth Sciences, recently launched a web-enabled project management information system for the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) projects. While inaugurating the DBT Strategy Meet at the NCR Biotech Science Cluster, Faridabad, he also unveiled a mobile app for the purpose. The application will be available at http://dbtepromis.nic.in.
The applications will help in registration of new investigators, online submission of proposals, uploading of project related documents and even online tracking of projects, reviewing the proposals and intimation of release of grants.
The application is expected to avoid delay in processing project proposals and access of information to the applicants on their proposals from anywhere. As a result, delays can be avoided as there can be peer review of the projects online.
