Chandigarh, September 13

After the successful implementation of e-office by the Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB), the Hospitality Department will switch over to an environment-friendly model from next week to avoid physical movement of files.

Yashpal Garg, Secretary, Hospitality, said the department would implement e-office completely in the Guest House-I and II by next week in order to achieve simplified, responsive, effective and transparent working in the department.

The hospitality staff were given training to implement e-office by the NIC, Chandigarh, today, he said. “Through this initiative, not only has the efficiency increased, but it has also ushered in more transparency, accountability and time-bound delivery of services,” said Garg, also the Chief Executive Officer, CHB.

As per the standard operating procedure (SOP), Dak receipts will be centralised at the reception and all such correspondence are to be scanned and converted into e-Dak. The reception will forward the e-Dak to the officer concerned through the e-office module.

The UT Administration had recently asked departments, boards and corporations of follow the

CHB, which was the first in the UT to implement the model.
