25 Govt Departments To Be Fully Computerised: MoS PMO

New Delhi,  (PTI) A total of 25 central government departments will be completely computerised in the next few days, Union minister Jitendra Singh said today.

He said there has been an increase of a whopping 6,000 per cent in the number of e-files, with 4,62,000 such files generated so far this year compared to 8,000 last year.

Singh said this during his visit to the premises of the Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances (DARPG) here to review the implementation of the Swachhta action plan.

The DARPG and the Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare are observing the Swachhta Pakhwada from June 16 to June 30.

Highlighting the steps taken by the DARPG, he said that 25 ministries/departments would be turned into e-office by the end of this month, an official release said.

Singh, the Minister of State in the Prime Ministers Office, said said that DARPG was seen as the human resource department of the government of India as all good practices originated from this department.

He expressed happiness over the fact that there has been near 100 per cent disposal of grievances under the Centralised Public Grievance Redress and Monitoring System (CPGRAMS).

About 50 per cent of the feedback received under the Centralised Pension Grievance Redressal and Monitoring System (CPENGRAMS) have expressed satisfaction on their grievance redressal.

DARPG secretary C Viswanath has said that the department has implemented 100 per cent e-office with digitisation of records.

He said that 58 central ministries/departments and 33 states and UTs had abolished affidavits and attestation.

The DARPG is undertaking various activities such as recording, reviewing and weeding out of old records, digitisation of records, and disposal of old and obsolete items.
