Delivering prompt and real time access to information and public service across all verticals is the primary objective for e-governance initiatives of Government of West Bengal. To materialise flawless service delivery to the citizens of the state, Government of West Bengal is steadily upgrading and digitising the internal functionalities of different Departments to make them at par with international standards.
In line with the e-governance endeavours of the Government of West Bengal, iOSMS (integrated online salary management system) is developed under the guidance of the Department of Urban Development & Municipal Affairs, Government of West Bengal and in supervision of the Directorate of Local Bodies. This online integrated system is designed for incorporating, maintaining and monitoring details of employees of Urban Local Bodies in West Bengal.
