In the first step towards e-Governance, the State government of Mizoram in India has launched its own indigenous special software called 'Office Procedure Automation Software', developed by the State's ICT cell.
According to Lalthla Muana, Deputy Secretary, IT, all secretariat offices and departments in the state capital are now connected through computer. The main objective of the system is to monitor all pending files in the respective departments, so that the required files can be tracked later if necessary. With the installation of this software, files would move faster and office procedures would be less burdensome. ICT cell also has connected all district headquarters with the state capital with video conferencing capabilities.
