The Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers (OPMCM) from today adopted the automated system for carrying out its daily administrative and official works.
With this the PM's office has said goodbye to paper and become computerized. The automated system was installed at the OPMCM in a bid to making all the works at the office paperless.
With the introduction of the automation system, the OPMCM also from today changed its office time. As per the new timing, the office hours have been fixed from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The automation system has been implemented on a trial basis for one month now, according to Under Secretary at the OPMCM, Kabindra Nepal.
Secretary at the office, Krishna Hari Banskota said that the advantages of this system are that it will help make all the responsible staff at the office more responsible, make the office works paperless and remove the problem of misplacement of files and letters.
He said the automation system has been started at the OPMCM as a role model for other government ministries. The government is carrying out internal home work to implement the system in all the 27 ministries of the Government of Nepal. Works on laying down optical fibre inside Singha Durbar where the ministries are located have reached the final stage.
Launching the automation system at the OPMCM, Chief Secretary Lilamani Poudyal expressed the belief that it would help develop the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers into a model government office.
