After introducing e-office system and promoting online functioning in different departments, the Uttar Pradesh government is set to make the Chief Minister’s office paperless. Besides, all Cabinet ministers will be given I-pads to make them tech-savvy.
The Cabinet meeting scheduled to be held next week would be paperless as I-pads would be used.
“On the instructions of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, all Cabinet ministers will be given I-pads to make them tech-savvy. Now, Cabinet meetings will be paperless and I-pads will be used instead of papers,” a statement released by the chief minister’s office said on Thursday.
When Yogi Adityanath took over as chief minister three years ago, he used to prefer paper as medium of government instructions. But now he has switched over to technology and wants his ministers also to follow suit.
Nowadays, Yogi uses his iPad extensively and was spotted reading and taking down notes at the DefExpo 2020.
A close aide of the chief minister said that he learnt this from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has taken several initiatives to make the country ‘digital first’. The prime minister is often seen using his iPad at conferences and meetings.
