Sonowal suggests introduction of ‘e-office’ to help smooth governance

Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Thursday said that the government will introduce ‘e-office’ to bring in expediency in administration and for inter-departmental coordination and convenience.

In an interaction with the deputy secretaries of various departments, Sonowal said that the objective is to achieve smooth functioning of government works.

Interacting with the deputy secretaries at Janata Bhawan in Guwahati on Thursday, Sonowal asked them to be committed to the people and serve them with dedication and honesty. He also said that the deputy secretaries who constitute the second round of bureaucracy are the force behind the government to perform. Citing the oft-repeated contention of delay in file movement, Sonowal asked the deputy secretaries to work resolutely to take governance to the grass root.

Sonowal however, took suggestions from the deputy secretaries and assured them to bring in necessary modalities for ease of administration at all levels of secretariat administration. He said that similar review and interactive sessions will be organized at least once every four months.

The chief minister stressed on sustainable quality maintenance legacy and asked the deputy secretaries to contribute to quality legacy to materialise the government’s objective of ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikash’.

Sonowal also said that taking into account of the paucity of space in Janata Bhawan, more buildings would be constructed to create an ideal ambience to work. He also said that employees’ amenity centres like rest-room, canteens, toilets will be created in Janata Bhawan for the officers and employees.
