The Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat formally initiated the e- cabinet at state secretariat on Wednesday.
The objective of the e— cabinet is to promote the culture of paperless work in offices and develop institutional memory. The CM said that the new system would not only reduce the use of paper but also help in easily getting the decisions of cabinet taken earlier. He said that e cabinet is an important decision in the direction of e—governance and transparency.
It is worth mentioning here that in the e- cabinet system, on line proposals would be sent to the cabinet ministers for approval. The Gopan department of state government has set up a portal for e-cabinet. The users would be provided an e account and the online ID of all cabinet ministers is prepared by the department. The information about cabinet meetings would be provided by sms and e- mail.
The minutes of the meetings and decisions would be uploaded online on the portal. The departments concerned would get digital approvals of the cabinet decisions.
