All Haryana govt departments to go paperless from November 1

Tribune News Service
Chandigarh, August 18

Come November 1, the functioning of the state government is set to be "paperless" with the e-Office software set to be implemented across different departments of the state government.

In fact, with 22 departments already switching over to electronic movement of files to the Chief Minister's Office (CMO), Chief Secretary (CS) Office and the Finance Department (FD), the e-Office project has got a major boost.

The CMO, the CS Office and FD have already switched over to e-Office for processing official files.

A senior officer said while another 20 departments would move to the e-Office software for disposal of official files on September 1, the state government has set the November 1 deadline for all other departments to follow suit.

"The usage of e-Office will significantly speed up the file movement and improve the operational efficiency of the departments," he hoped.

Prominent among 22 departments opting for e-Office included Development and Panchayats, Employment, Higher Education, Housing, HSIIDC, Public Health Engineering, Labour, Rural Development, Social Justice and Empowerment and Science and Technology.

Meanwhile, an elaborate standard operating procedure (SOP) has been put in place by the state government to guide officials in the functioning of new institutional mechanism.

Sources said the e-Office would prove to be a boon in Covid times as the officials concerned could dispose of the files through electronic mode on desktops, laptops and smartphones, cutting unnecessary delays.

Developed by the National Informatics Centre, e-Office provides a digital workplace solution that will pave the way for an efficient and open government by streamlining workflow.
