Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today launched a scheme to make secretariat offices "paperless" by obtaining his digital signature.
"It is an important step aimed at not only increasing efficiency and bring transparency in working of departments, but also to turn the concept of green governance into reality," an official release issued here said. Taking a decision to make the IT and Electronics department paperless in the first phase, the Chief Minister obtained his digital signature and approved a departmental file using the same, it said.
Using the e-office application developed by NIC, Yadav directed all divisional commissioners and district magistrates that hurdles should not be faced by the people and students in obtaining various government services like certificates. The Chief Minister said the government was committed to provide services and information to the people on their doorsteps through an electronic delivery system, it said. After making functioning of the Secretariat paperless, the disposal of files would be quick and it could be tracked immediately, Yadav said.
