Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has said that the e-office system will be started at all government offices in the state from April 1 next year so that work speeds up and becomes "paperless".
Shinde made the announcement after meeting V Srinivas, secretary of the central administrative reforms and public grievances department.
The e-office system will enable faster functioning and the business will also be paperless, the chief minister said.
Once all government offices switch to the e-office mode, officials can access files and documents on their mobile phones as well, he added.
Indian Railways adopts paperless working mode under special campaign
Earlier in October, the Government of India began a special campaign to make Indian Railways 100% paperless in an effort to decrease paper waste.
The Ministry of Railways made the decision to launch a special initiative called campaign 2.0 in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's goal of emphasising cleanliness everywhere, lowering the pendency of public complaints, and enhancing workplace culture.
According to a statement released by the Ministry of Railways, the programme was so successful that a follow-up, dubbed "Special Campaign 2.0," was launched in September with a wider scope and goals to further promote cleanliness and good governance in all areas of work across the nation.
