Sikkim becomes 1st NE state to implement e-office in Spices Board

Gangtok : A two-day training programme on e-office module today concluded at the Spices Board office in Gangtok. The objective of the training was to transform conventional government offices into more efficient e-offices by doing away with cumbersome paper work and bringing about a sense of transparency and accountability. The e-office product, pioneered by the National Informatics Centre (NIC), aims to augment the operational efficacy of government offices and mitigate the overburden of documents that cease to pile up. Sikkim is the first among the North Eastern states where the e-office concept has been implemented by the Spices Board. 

e-File, an integral part of the e-office suite, is a system designed for government departments, PSU’s and various autonomous bodies to enable a paperless office by scanning, registering and routing internal correspondences along with creating files, correspondence and their smooth movement and receipts. Storage of files will be all the much easier. The training programme was initiated by resource persons from Spices Board, the E.D.P Department, Kochi for Spices Board employees of both Sikkim and West Bengal. As many as 35 individuals attended the training. The e-office implementation of the Spices Board complements the FOA system where farmers are provided with online payment facilities of subsidies under various developmental schemes.
