Odisha Excise Department’s e-Akbari Bags Gold At Digital India Award



New Delhi: The Odisha Excise Department bagged the ‘Digital India Gold Award” for its digital initiatives for ease of doing business through e-Abkari. President of India Droupadi Murmu presented the prestigious award to Sushil Kumar Lohani, principal secretary to the Government of Odisha, PR Department and former principal secretary of Odisha Excise Department, at an event at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi on Friday.

It is worth mentioning here that in tune with 5T initiatives of the Government of Odisha, the Excise Department has switched over to the digital workplace “eAbkari” with the technical support of NIC since 2019-20 by developing and implementing more than 30 online modules like e-Lottery, Instant issue & renewal of Excise Licenses, Brand Label Registrations with 100% online payment, DPR, CCIS, SIR and mobile app development for tracking of raid spots and excise shops etc. to ensure transparent, hassle-free, real-time, seamless and timely service delivery eliminating physical touch points, reducing discretion and providing faceless service at door steps.

This initiative of the Odisha Excise Department led to proper monitoring and strengthening of enforcement activities, curbing of illicit and spurious liquor, timely service delivery at different levels, proper supply chain management with the regulation of production and manufacture and above all, change of public perception and transformation in the department.

The Odisha Excise Department has made a lot of efforts to implement the 5T initiatives of the state government to transform the department in all aspects, including the use of technology.
