Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the purpose of putting "Receive/Payment" form in Manage Earning?

    Suppose an asset is given on rent for 6 months and the earning amount is received on monthly basis. Then to add the additional earning amount, you do not need to fill the complete earning form again and again. Just click on Receive / Payment against the asset id and enter the payment details.

  • Is it possible to change the asset status after disposing it?

    No. Once the asset is disposed, it will not be available in NAD.

  • How can I change the status of stolen asset to Active?

    You can change the status through Update Asset Status form.

  • What happens if any plan unit refuses to accept a transferred asset?

    If the plan unit declines the transfer request, the asset will go back to the transferor (plan unit who has transferred the asset).

  • If I transfer the asset with 'Upgradation Only' right, how can I get the asset back with the same right?

    Once the asset is upgraded, the receiving party (to whom you have transfer the asset) will transfer the asset to you through Add Asset Transfer Form. You need to accept the transfer request through Add Asset receiving form. Now the asset is available to you with Upgradation right.

  • What are other application portals that are connected with NAD?

    NAD is connected to ActionSoft (assets created in ActionSoft automatically displayed in NAD), PriaSoft (for managing vouchers with respect to Asset creation, upgradation, maintenance and earning), LGD (for displaying planned unit while selecting implementing agency, executing agency and private agency) and PES (for user management and schemes details).

  • Can we enter 100 computers together instead of adding computer1 computer 2 computer 3 in the add asset form?

    No, you have to enter the asset name individually because only based on this, 100 asset IDs are created rather than one asset ID. Common details like asset category, location, asset cost, etc. are entered only once.

  • Why we need to maintain asset directory?

    The purpose of National Asset Directory (NAD) is to keep track of all the assets created or maintained by RLB, ULB or Line Department. Also, NAD helps the State level authority to keep an eye on the assets created/ maintained in their state as well as the current status of those assets.

  • Can we import assets from other portal?

    No. Currently, NAD does not provide the data porting facility. But an asset created in ActionSoft is displayed directly in NAD, if NAD is operational in the same state where ActionSoft is operational.

  • What is the difference between disposal and abandon?

    Disposal means the asset is no more useful or its lifetime is over. So it is disposed to external agency (private agencies) and thereafter, the asset will not be visible in NAD. Whereas Abandon means the asset cannot be used currently due to some reason but it can be used in future. For example, a well without water can be abandoned and the status is updated to “Active as soon as the water of that well is available for use.

  • What is linked-in with other asset?

    Linking with other asset means you are linking the asset, whose details are being entered, with the asset which is already created in NAD. Suppose you are entering the data for building which is linked with a land whose entry is already entered in NAD, then you can link the building with the land by selecting asset id or details (asset type, asset category, asset subcategory and asset name) to identify the asset under If Linked with Other asset
