A software named “PIIM” has recently been developed for use in various dairy co-operaive societies and has been successfully applied by the Department of Dairy Development, Govt. Of Assam under RKVY (Rastriya Krishi Vikash Yogana).The department has applied the newly developed software for efficient functioning of the many dairy co-operative societies in the state. The software was developed by Arindam Mani Das, Technology Consultant, Centre for Humanistic Development. PIIM (an Algerian word for milk) is an MIS(Management Information System) software and it will enable the diary cooperative societies of the various districts of Assam to generate reports and records properly. Arindam Mani Das is the grandson of nonagenarian freedom fighter and social worker Pani Ram Das of Kalaigaon.
People of Kalaigaon have expressed satisfaction at his success.
Health department of Assam has been launching various massive health programme for the common people but due to a few inefficient and corrupt officials most of the schemes could not reach common people.Kalaigaon StateDispensary, which was established in 1886 has been the only medical help to more than thirty thousand people. The SD which has been run by just one doctor has always faced with shortage of medicines. The SD could not distribute free medicine to people (not even vital paracetamol tablets) for the last four months ie from May to August 2010 causing untold suffering to people.Recently a journalist sent a tweet message to Health Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma on the matter.The techno crazy Health Minister immediately returned tweet, saying that medicine would reach Kalaigaon State dispensary within twenty four hours time.And it was done.To much surprise, huge stocks of medicines reached Kalaigaon SD the very next day and tough vigilance actions were seen taken against the guilty officials.People of Kalaigaon thanked Health Minister for such speedy action.
