The concept of e-office has been implemented in some offices over the past couple of years on a pilot basis. Upon huge success, the concept of e-office is set to take off in around 35 departments simultaneously from January 1. While e-office or less-paper office has made entry at different levels across departments, these offices are not integrated or interconnected at present.
So far, about 60 government offices have adopted the less-paper concept, but they are not interconnected, which means the system of working is restricted to those offices. e-office also offers long-term benefits in governance. Being tamper-proof is a big a benefit of E-office. E-office also prevents duplication of documents.
