The Chief of Air Staff RKS Bhadauria launched the Indian Air Force e-governance portal — eOffice — on Thursday. The newly launched paperless office workflow being offered under e-Office system is likely to transform the way files are currently handled in IAF offices.
In a statement, IAF said that the implementation undertaken as part of Digital India and e-governance initiative will transform the entire Indian Air Force to a paperless office workflow.
The launch of e-office system in IAF marks a paradigm shift from the current method of correspondence, filing and documentation to digital mode.
The platform would achieve enhanced transparency, improved efficiency, increased accountability, assured data integrity and rapidly accessible archives along with a major reduction in the use of paper, a Defence Ministry statement said.
Defence Ministry said that the application has been designed indigenously from scratch and customized to meet the filing system requirements of IAF.
It provides for creation, handling, movement, processing and archival of files and documents and would enable quick disposal and faster decision making, the ministry added.
