The Tripura government has already made the assembly proceedings in the digital mode under the e-vidhansabha initiative.
The work for e-office in Smart arrangement in the administration of Civil Secretariat and district Magistrate offices of the state has been going on and very soon, Tripura will achieve a milestone of digital administration, the minister claimed.
“We are working on a module of SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound) administration to bring complete transparency in government functioning and to facilitate a citizen-friendly governance in Tripura, which will ensure a transparent and accountable administration,” Chowdhury stated.
He pointed out that the decision for e-cabinet had been taken by the council of ministers in a meeting on Wednesday and Tripura will be the fourth state after Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Arunachal Pradesh to have paperless meetings of the cabinet.

“Besides educating people about the benefits of digital services, we are propagating the environmental cost of traditional governance which is driven by pen and paper. Moreover, e-services and e-governance ensure transparency and accountability of the administration that will reduce the problems and speed up the functioning,” Chowdhury added.
