Bengaluru, September 6, 2015: The Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar launched the IAF-HAL ePortal at HAL Corporate Office here today. This is the first inter organization information sharing system (IOIS) under Digital India initiative between a Defence service organization and a Defence PSU. Air Marshal S B P Sinha, Deputy Chief of Air Staff; Dr G Satheesh Reddy, SA to RM, T. Suvarna Raju, CMD, HAL and other senior officials were present on the occasion.

Welcoming the initiative, Parrikar hoped that the e-portal will synergize the competencies of Indian Air Force and HAL. He exhorted to take utmost care while managing the portal which provides authentic information to the stake holders involved besides saving considerable time and eliminating the need for frequent joint meetings at various levels.

Speaking on the occasion, Raju said the customer centric portal would go a long way in leveraging the benefits of information sharing in real time. It will also enable the visibility of HAL rotable repair milestones and provide information on status of supply against Aircraft on Ground (AoG), tasks involved etc., he added.

Air Marshal S B P Sinha, Deputy Chief of Air Staff said the ePortal will facilitate secure information sharing between IAF and HAL for better coordination, improved transparency and faster decision making.

The e-portal will optimize long term material planning and reduce the repair and overhaul cycle time. The portal will reduce time for finalization of tasking and fixed price quotation (FPQ) processes. All in all, the ePortal will ensure reduction in turnaround time and better serviceability of all IAF platforms supported by HAL.
