The system provides separate website for each organization. The system is hosted centrally in NIC Cloud. It is highly scalable and allows any organization to use the application with ease and with no cost on application.

All Central Government Organizations including sub-ordinate and attached offices may initiate necessary steps for on-boarding BAS in respect of respective organization as per the DOPT and MeitY instructions / guidelines (as given in website:, meeting the timelines of DOPT.
