In the era of modernization, infrastructure development has gained utmost significance, especially in the various Army stations.

The stations where major works are often planned to replace vintage accommodation of pre independence era are the most privileged. The process is cumbersome and time consuming involving multiple agencies. Land has also become a very scarce resource since all cantonments and military stations have now come closer to major population centers. At present, all functions towards infrastructure development and management to include ascertaining availability of land, planning and monitoring of works, environment conservation and responsive quartering policies are carried out manually, which is not only time consuming but is also in-efficient.

Realizing that automation is the key to empowering all stake holders to transform and become efficient, transparent and enhance accountability, Indian Army has introduced software named the ‘Infrastructure Management System (IMS)’ software. The IMS was inaugurated by the COAS on the sidelines of the Army Commanders Conference on October 28, 2020.

Automating works initiation, preparation of list and its approval by the MoD, According administrative approval and monitoring of execution by the CFA, Making automatic availability of CAO pool accommodation, planning vacation, re-allocation and undertaking maintenance, Automating the approval of accommodation allocation or extension of education ground for children, special children and Battle/Physical casualty, Managing cantonment roads including emergency closure, Making land, works and quartering policies available on line, Monitoring land encroachment, Old Grant Bungalows, VIP references and transfer are among the other significant scopes of the software package.
