Srinagar, May 25: In a major decision,the Administrative Council (AC), which convened here under Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, approved the creation of the Disaster Recovery Centre outside the J&K Seismic Zone as well as its maintenance for a period of five years.
The project has been considered as a part of adoption and launch of e-Office Software in all major departments and offices of the Government of Jammu & Kashmir. 
Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar, Advisor to the Lieutenant Governor; Dr.Arun Kumar Mehta, Chief Secretary, J&K and Mandeep Kumar Bhandari, Principal Secretary to the Lieutenant Governor attended the meeting.
The digital services of the Government of Jammu & Kashmir, including e-Office operate out of the servers installed at the primary site in the Data Centre at Jammu, however, the establishment of a Disaster Recovery Centre outside of J&K Seismic Zone, would protect the entire data of the primary site against any natural or technical disaster with a back up at the secondary site, in a different seismic zone.
It is important to have a disaster recovery plan in place to mitigate disaster related interruptions, which makes the establishment of disaster recovery sites an essential part of the system, especially when entire Government work is becoming digital. The goal of a disaster recovery plan is to maintain technical operations and quickly restore ability to operate the Government business in the face of disasters like floods, fires, earthquakes or other adverse conditions.
