Need to End Red Tape

-A Step towards Good Governance
-E-Office is a Mission-Mode project as part of e-Governance Initiatives.
-The e-office initiative goes back to 2009, but the towering piles of paperwork were–and still are–a hurdle too high to cross.
Idukki in Kerala became paperless in 2012 and Hyderabad in 2016.
