BANGALORE: The State Government on Monday signed a Letter of Intent with Microsoft, India, to establish paperless offices in Government.

Jean Philippe Courtois, President, Microsoft International and M.N. Vidhyashanker, Secretary, Information Technology and Biotechnology, signed the Letter of Intent in the presence of Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy.

Mr. Kumaraswamy said the IT and BT department would become the first paperless departments of the Government from October 1. Later, the Government would utilise Microsoft applications to establish paperless offices in other departments. There was no financial expenditure involved in the project, he said.

The Letter of Intent stated that “the vision of the Government is to utilise IT to usher in an era of electronic governance aimed at demystifying the role of the Government, simplifying procedures, bringing in transparency and making available need-based quality information on a timely basis to all citizens and delivering service to the people in an efficient and cost effective manner.” The Chief Minister said the Government had decided to engage Microsoft for furthering the use of IT for better delivery of services, particularly in the remote corners of the State.

The Government would explore the possibility of using Microsoft applications in the fields of education, government-citizen delivery service, e-governance and management information systems.
