Indian Railways: Following a notification issued by the Ministry of Railways, the Government of India recently launched a special campaign to make Indian Railways 100% paperless in an effort to reduce paper wastage.

The Railway Ministry took the decision to launch a special initiative called Campaign 2.0 in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s aim to emphasize cleanliness everywhere, reduce reliance on public complaints and improve workplace culture.

According to a statement from the Ministry of Railways, the program was so successful that a follow-up, called “Special Campaign 2.0”, was launched in September with a wider scope and aim to further promote cleanliness and good governance in all areas of work across the nation.

The Ministry of Railways had established a significantly larger scope for itself in all aspects of its operations in accordance with Special Campaign 2.0’s guiding principles, considering Indian Railways’ presence across the nation.

The cleanliness drive, which focused on mechanized cleaning of stations, cleanliness of trains and collection and safe disposal of plastic and other debris, covered all 7,337 stations, which is a monumental task in itself. The Prime Minister also praised the Bangalore Railway Station for such an endeavour.

A number of awareness initiatives, such as ‘NukkadNatak’ (street show), were held across the railways as part of Special Campaign 2.0. According to reports, these initiatives were not only effective but also left a lasting impression and were well received by all.

The development of IT applications for electronic processing and disposal of VIP(MP/MLA) references and parliamentary references such as those made during Zero Hour and under Section 377 in Parliament by Members of Parliament is one of the additional initiatives taken in during this campaign.

The Ministry of Railways has also decided to completely discontinue paper-based operations with effect from 1 November. All business processes will be digitalised, and the work will be archived electronically using the railway board’s e-office system.

Especially from November 1, The Indian Railways will adopt Railway Board Office file work using E-Office System.
