Surat's DISC

After Microsoft and IBM joined `Surat Smart City', the Computer Society of India (CSI) and the Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SGCCI) have joined hands to roll out Digital Initiative for Surat Citizens (DISC) mobile application.
CSI, India's oldest association of IT industry professionals, will help the civic body set up the technical support society (TSS). All possible information about businesses, entertainment, trains, flights, restaurants, government schemes and host of others will be collated and put on a single platform that can be accessed by citizens through the DISC app.
“Students too will get information on upcoming exams and old question papers of CBSE and ICSE boards will also be made available among other services,“ said a senior SMC official. Municipal commissioner Milind Torwane said that the whole idea of DISC is to disseminate all possible useful information to people.
TSS' primary job will be reach out to those having data in their respective fields and help share it on an open data platform. Besides mobile app, this entire set of information will be available on a dedicated portal too.
