In order to make the administration responsive and transparent, the physical file system will not be entertained now in the Civil Secretariat of Jammu and Kashmir.

Already most of the departments are sending e-files and now the government has issued a fresh order in which all the government offices have been told not to send the physical files and daks to the Civil Secretariat.

The government has decided to entertain only e-files and there would be the movement of the files checked on the computers and now there is no provision for any official to keep the file pending on his table.

According to the government order, a copy of which lies with the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) all heads of the Department were directed to switch over to e-office mode of working with assistance/hand holding from the Information Technology Department.

“In pursuance of these directions, all HoDs (move as well as non move) were

provided the necessary assistance by the Information Technology Department,

by way of provisioning of the VPN connections, creation of domain IDs (@jk.gov.in) and training of local admins/master trainers etc,” the order reads.

“Notwithstanding the instructions, extension of timelines and the arrangements put in place, it has been observed that, many HoD offices are still not fully operational on e-office mode and continue to send physical files/daks to their respective Administrative Secretaries, a matter which has been viewed seriously by the authorities,” the order said.

“It is, accordingly, enjoined upon all Administrative Secretaries to

direct HoDs working under their administrative control to immediately switch over to e-office mode of working. Further, no physical files/daks shall be entertained in the Civil Secretariat, J&K, w.e.f. 7th  March, 2022,” the order reads.
