Under Digital India Programme, Ministry is implementing e-Panchayat Mission Mode Project (MMP) with the aim to transform the functioning of Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs), making them more transparent, accountable, and effective.

The Ministry launched eGramSwaraj, a work-based Accounting Application for Panchayati Raj Institutions under the e-Panchayat MMP on 24th April 2020. This application encompasses all aspects of Panchayat functioning viz. planning, budgeting, accounting, monitoring, asset management etc, on a single digital platform including online payments. Further, in order to ensure better financial management of PRIs for enhancing transparency & accountability in maintenance of accounts, Ministry has integrated eGramSwaraj with PFMS. With this integration, Panchayats can transfer payments online to their vendors.

So far, 2.55 lakh Gram Panchayat (GPs) across States/UTs have prepared and uploaded their Gram Panchayat Development Plans (GPDPs) for 2022-23 on eGramSwaraj. Moreover, 2.24 lakh GPs have carried online transactions under 15th Finance Commission during 2022-23.
