State’s offices to go paperless by 2021: CM

TAWANG, Feb 15: Chief Minister Pema Khandu has said all the government offices in Arunachal will be made paperless by 2021.
“The advantage of having paperless e-offices is to stop manipulation, ensure transparency, and provide easy access of services to the people,” the CM said after launching the Wi-Fi hotspot for Tawang and Dirang at the deputy commissioner’s office here on Friday.
Stating that the Wi-Fi services have been rolled out as per the budget announcement, Khandu said 66 access points in Tawang and 12 in Dirang will be installed, with the capacity to provide Wi-Fi service to 124 users at each access point.
The CM lauded the district administration for conducting Sarkar Aapke Dwar (SAD) camps across the district, and
expressed happiness that Tawang is among the five top performing districts which will receive gold medals in the coming Statehood Day for implementing SAD camps.
The chief minister also attended the enthronement ceremony of the new abbot of Tawang monastery, His Eminence Gyangbung Rinpoche, here on Friday.
“Tawang monastery is renowned not only in the state but the world over, and the enthronement of the new abbot is a significant event, which has its effect all over the world,” Khandu said while welcoming the abbot to his new role and responsibilities.
“Due to the role of religion in the society, people here are peaceful, and the district boasts of a very low crime rate, due to which the district has a low presence of policemen, numbering less than 100,” the CM said.
Traditional monastic dances were performed by monks to mark the occasion.
