Chandigarh, July 24

The paperless office is set to make its foray into the Haryana Government from July 27, with the state implementing the e-office project.

For the first time, the use of pen and paper is set to be history in all matters relating to four major policies — outsourcing, ex gratia, casualty (compensation and jobs for dependants) and sports — at the Civil Secretariat.

All administrative secretaries and heads of department have been directed to send all matters for consideration to the Chief Secretary through e-office as physical files will not be entertained.

Officials concerned will dispose of files through electronic mode on desktops, laptops and smartphones, which will cut unnecessary delays and voluminous paper work.

"Electronic movement of files will go a long way in quick disposal of files, especially amid Covid, as a number of officials work from home," said a senior officer.

Sources said e-office, developed by the National Informatics Centre, would provide a digital workplace solution that would pave the way for an efficient and open government by streamlining workflow.
