Officials today (Saturday) said that Odisha Governor Ganeshi Lal has said, the state government has saved around 700 big trees by partially switching over to paperless budgeting in 2019-20 fiscal.



 

The governor was quoted as saying, digital methods had substantially reduced the printing of documents during the 2019-20 annual budget.


Lal had said during his address to the Assembly before the commencement of its budget session Friday, “It (the partial switchover) has reduced the printing of about 57 lakh pages which saved around 700 large trees.”




 

The governor said, in the future, the state government intends to completely shift to paperless budgeting.


Lal said that the state government has also introduced a single-page salary bill for its employees and pension papers are now being electronically processed through the Integrated Financial Management System (IFMS). Moreover, the governor said, the state government has implemented the Odisha Secretariat Workflow Automation System (OSWAS) in all the departments and directorates.

 

Lal further added, OSWAS provides an effective method of storing, maintaining and retrieving a large volume of data with less paperwork, easy monitoring and tracking of files, instant approvals and SMS alerts as reminders for urgent documents..
