Vijayawada: Railway Board, Guntur division chairman V.K. Yadav on Saturday formally launched the RailTel e-office paperless working system in South Central Railways HQ.
SCR and Guntur are the first Railway establishments to adopt paperless service across Indian Railways.
The e-office project is a Mission Mode Project under the National e-Governance Programme of the Government of India. The project aims to usher in more efficient, effective and transparent inter-government and intra-government transactions and processes.
SCR headquarters is the first Railway Zonal HQ where the e-office has been implemented. The work of implementation in the entire SCR would be completed by June 19 and other zonal headquarters and one division in each zone will be completed by December 2019.
e-office is cloud-enabled software that is deployed and hosted from RailTel Tier III-certified data centre. It is based on the Central Secretariat Manual of e-Office Procedure (CSMeOP).
This is a giant leap forward to digitalise and achieve greater efficiency and productivity for the Indian Railways.
Speaking on this occasion Mr Yadav said that the Indian Railways till date is burgeoned with manual ways to handle office documents. This not only makes the process slow but consumes more energy on its workforce....
