Further it will generate MIS report of visitors visiting Raj Bhavan.
It is informed that, the system will work in stages, at first stage, person seeking an appointment with the Governor will have to call ADC to Governor Office. Next user at ADC to Governor`s Office will make an entry and third level ADC to Governor will submit report to Governor for approval. Fourth stage security gate system will notify with approved appointments to Raj Bhavan Officials on real time. Then Security officials will verify appointment schedule with person to whom confirmation SMS sent, will capture photo and issue gate pass, after that person will allowed to enter premise of Raj Bhavan.
