Corporation Of Chennai
The Corporation of Chennai (previously Madras) is the Oldest Municipal Institution in India established on the 29th September 1688. It is located on the Coromandel Coast on the Northern end of the State of Tamil Nadu. It covers about 426 Sq. Km. and has an estimated present population of Chennai is 6.5 Million.
Corporation of Chennai has been a pioneer in the area of eGovernance and was the first corporation in India to adopt Double Entry Accrual based accounting system. The douple entry accouting system was introduced in 1988. Most of its operations were already computerised. However they were all operating in silos with no integration between these systems. Corporation of Chennai decided to launch an integrated Municipal ERP covering key functions of the ULB and selected eGovernments Foundation as the implementing agency.
The system currently has more than 1000 active users and they are expected to jump up to 4000 in due course of time.

In October 2011, the Chennai Municipal Corporation's municipal limits were enhanced by annexing 42 local bodies including nine municipalities, eight town panchayats and 25 village panchayats to expand the city limit from the existing 174 sq km to 426 sq km. The number of wards were changed from 155 to 200 wards. Having a centralized integrated system helped out in making the relevant changes and rolling out these systems to the extended areas. eGov completed the whole exercise in less than 2 months from the receipt of order from the corporation.
Corporation of Chennai was the first implementation of the eGov Integrated Municipal ERP. The system is built on an open source J2EE platform with Oracle as the database. The operating system is Redhat Enterprise Linux.
The physical servers are located in the data center managed by ELCOT.
The servers are centrally hosted all the zones and ward offices connect over existing leased line connections and broad band to the centralized server.
As more services are made available to the users, additional servers can be added in a clustered enviorment to scale the applications.
