I. The BO should have table to place the Handheld Device and for charging the device.

III. The locations where electrical power connection is there, it should have proper earthing and with one or two plug points along with on/off switch.
IV. The above site preparation is to be done before the roll out starts for the particular Division.
V. The data on BO such as the name of the BPM, contact details, address of the BO with land marks etc. may be updated and kept ready.
VI. The availability of the network connectivity (Vodafone/ BSNL / Airtel etc.)at the BO location may also accessed and the best signal available in the BO may be identified and kept in order to facilitate the Vendor with details to drive best out of the project. If the network signal is not available, we have to identify as Off-line BO.
VII. Similarly identification of the BOs where the solar UPS is not required due to installation problems of the solar panel or good power availability for more than 6 hours daily, has to be also done.
