AASAAN by Supertron Infotech facilitating easy online Puja Permission Certificates

AASAAN : Powered by Supertron Infotech

AASAAN -The Online Single Window Application and Permission Approval System for Durga Puja Festival.

Supertron Infotech has always been innovative and passionate in its approach in solving problems of its clients. This time also Supertron has developed an innovative solution that has solved the problems of Kolkata Police and various other Government agencies in providing various permission certificates to the Puja Committees.

In past 15 years the scale as well as number of Pandals has grown by leap and bounds. In Kolkata Police jurisdiction alone,  4500+ pandals are set up. Community Pujas are organised in public places. Pandals of various sizes are constructed across the city  where Durga Puja rituals as well as festivities happen during the four days of the festivals.

Various government agencies, Kolkata Police being the nodal & coordinating authority, are involved in granting permission for setting up the pandals, to Durga Puja Committees.

Typically the process of application starts a fortnight before start of the festivities and permission is accorded just before start of celebrations.

Various agencies involved are

  • Law & Order : Kolkata Police
  • Power Supply : CESC Ltd and WBSEDCL for electricity
  • Land Permission : KMC, KMDA &  KoPT for land
  • Environment Control : WB Pollution Control Board
  • Fire & Emergency : WB State Fire Services

Process Prior to AASAAN

Special cells, by each of 8 agencies involved in giving  permission, used to be set up across the city. The organisers had to visit these cells and everything was done manually. It was a long and tedious process.

Idea of Aasaan

In 2016, Supertron Infotech Pvt Ltd came up with the idea of creating Single Window Web Portal that would simplify the process. This web portal had enabled 4500+ Durga Puja Organisers under Kolkata Police Jurisdiction to apply and receive permissions online via a web application from 8 different Government Agencies .

The AASAAN Process

  1. The web portal (which is active only during puja permission period) started accepting applications on 17th of September 2016.

Each of the 8 agencies involved were part of the system admin group with their unique logins including 69 Police Stations under Kolkata Police Jurisdiction .

  1. As soon as the application got submitted, relevant portion of the application was visible to the respective agency to review and take necessary action.
  2. Within a time frame of 2 weeks all the 4500+ Durga Puja organising committees got the permission – online, without requiring even one physical visit even once.


  • Manpower Savings
  • Time Saving
  • Paperless
  • Easy Approval
  • Cashless Secured Transactions
  • System Available 24×7


Thus the solution has overly simplified the whole process, and helped Kolkata Police focus on more important works. This is the advantage of choosing Supertron Infotech, the Smart IT Partner of businesses and govt. The solution was so much a success that Asansol, another major jurisdiction of the state also requested Supertron to implement the solution with the Asansol Police too.

Observing the huge success of AASAAN, now Kolkata Police has entrusted Supertron Infotech for its all other IT needs.

This was an example that Supertron Infotech is capable to provide innovative solutions to the government sector too. This has opened a new avenue for Supertron Infotech to partner with govt agencies to provide them with their unique IT services.
