East Garo Hills admin pushes for paperless meetings

By Correspondent

WILLIAMNAGAR, Nov 22 - In a commendable move by the office of the Deputy Commissioner (DC) of East Garo Hills, a circular has been issued to all department heads in the district to strive to make all future meetings and reviews paperless.

In an order passed by the DC, Swapnil Tembe, he observed that during reviews and meetings, a lot of papers were being wasted in terms of printing reports and agendas, and furnishing the same to all those present in the meetings, despite the use of projectors to display the presentation.

�This results in unnecessary wastage of paper as the data is already presented on the screen. For convenience of all attendees, the presentation can also be shared to everyone�s phone via email or WhatsApp,� the DC said.

He agreed that sometimes hard copies may be needed for in-depth analysis, but stated that the requirement was a small fraction of the amount of paper being wasted.

�Please make efforts to go paperless in your review meetings. This one small step will drastically reduce your paper requirement while also cutting expenses. Needless to say the environment will benefit too with less trees being chopped off for paper,� said Tembe in his appeal to all departments.

The circular was issued on November 19.
