The State of Odisha has implemented the Automated Post Allotment Application (APAA)for smooth management of existing MSME business units associated with IDCO. This portal has been developed to facilitate online registrations, applications for any post allotment matters, online payments, application tracking and processing activities.
The portal has been envisioned to reduce the steps involved in the application process. It also enables the units to download the sanctioned letters, removing all physical interfaces between them and IDCO, thus reducing the burden on both.
Online Registration: To avail the services provided by the portal the units need to register themselves online. A registered unit is provided with unique user credentials through e-mail. The units will use these credentials for all future post allotment services.
Online Application and Payment Gateway:Online applications for all post allotment services have been enabled by this portal. The units can also pay their statutory dues like Ground Rent, Cess, and IMC Charges along with the processing fee for the post allotment request online through the payment gateway integrated with this portal. This ensures that the units enjoy hassle-free services from the comfort of their offices.
Application Status Tracking:To ensure prompt servicing of the applications the portal enables the units to track and monitor the progress of their applications. The system also sends e-mail and SMS alerts to the user to alert them aboutany change in the application status. A dedicated mobile application has also been developed for checking the status of the application.
Online Process and Approval: The internal processing in terms of document verification, authentication and field survey will be carried out using this application. Each stakeholder has been provided with a unique login credential to access the application allowing them to receive requests, process them and provide prompt approvals. The final office order is also communicated to the units through the application. By digitizing the entire process this application saves valuable timefor the associated officials and units.
Online generation of Demand:The demand notice for the statutory dues of the existing units is generated through the system based on the provisionsdefined by IDCO. This demand notice can be viewed by accessing the application and is subsequently communicated to the respective units through emails or SMS.
